Tropical Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I know it's the middle of winter but we had some leftover Hawiian Rolls and you know I'm all about the desserts. So this idea just came to mind... I've never made a bread pudding before but it sounded good.
My Husband asked me why I was making this because I don't like bread pudding. You see the problem is that I dont like wet bread. The thought of it makes me gag... so I am not sure why this sounded so good. I will say I was disapointed when I first tried it out of the oven, it was very much like I expected. Very Wet Bread. But, the next day, it was so magnificently wonderful! More like a very moist cake full of flavors of coconut and pineapple. Wonderfully delicious, and made even better topped with a Rum Sauce. SO GOOD! Wish I had some more right now! 
Ingredients:
10 - 12 Hawaiian Rolls
1 cup milk
1 cup cream of coconut
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 8oz can pineapple
1 cup sweetened coconut

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Break bread into small pieces into an 9 inch square baking pan. Sprinkle with coconut.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, cream of coconut, sugar, pineapple, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.

Fried Cabbage

Happy New Year Y'all! It's a tradition to eat black eyed peas and cabbage on new years... for luck and prosperity.

 I did a little research this morning and this is what I found.

For New Years, pork represents health and wealth, and continued prosperity. Some say also that a pig also represents progress - since pigs pretty much can't just look backward without completely turning around, so a pig represents forward progress.

The tradition of black-eyed peas for southerners is believed to have originated back during Civil War times when Sherman's soldiers raided southern homes, taking virtually all of the food and burning the crops, but mostly ignoring the fields of black-eyed peas, because they thought them to be food for the livestock and of no value otherwise. As one of the few food sources left to sustain the people and the southern soldiers, those black-eyed peas came to represent good fortune.

The black-eyed peas represent coins, cabbage represents paper money and corn…

Comfort in a Cup - Minty Rich Cocoa

Weekend mornings are my chance to have me time; to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy the silence; to think of things to make for my sweeties. This morning I decided to wake them up with a scrumptiously decadent cup of Minty hot chocolate.
Ahhh, the weekend.

My sweeties are asleep

and I've got a little time to spare.

(ok, not sure what's going on here... I've already picked him up off the floor once)




Minty Rich Cocoa
1 1/2 cups powdered nondairy creamer
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips
peppermint sticks divided (crushed for mix and whole for stiring)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. (this makes a lot so have a container handy to store the rest)

Place 1/4 cup cocoa mix into a cup and add 3/4 cup boiling water... stir and enjoy! Now go wake those kids up.

Spaghetti Pie

I've seen spaghetti pie recipes numerous times. But they all use the spaghetti as a crust and then cover it will toppings like a pizza. The "crust" looks dry and unappealing so I've never tried it until I came across this recipe for Hillbilly Spaghetti Pie on Mommy's Kitchen. I chose to omit the name Hillbilly because that isn't a name that is synonymous with Texas. Southern yes, hillbilly no. Now that we have the official new name for this recipe, we can proceed with the goodness!!

Ingredients:
1/2 - cup onion, chopped
2 - tablespoons olive oil
1/2 - pound ground beef
1/2 - pound sweet Italian sausage
2-garlic cloves, minced
1 - (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 - teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 - tsp Italian seasoning
1 - tablespoon sugar
1 - teaspoon salt (or to taste)
2 - cups water
8 - ounces thin spaghetti, broken into 3 inch pieces (not angel hair)
1/4 - cup heavy whipping cream
