Meatball Bread Pudding
Easy and tasty, a great way to use up leftovers. I substituted a cup of spaghetti sauce and some water for the wine and tomatoes simply because that's what I had on hand. I mixed everything except the egg mixture together and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of days. I added the egg mixture and let it soak for another 9-10 hours before baking. Very good!

Bread Pudding II
What a terrific recipe! I'd never tried bread pudding before, and this couldn't be easier, more economical, or yummier. I used 3 eggs simply because that's all I had on hand, threw in some chocolate chips and cherries, and it was to die for. I did let it sit overnight so the bread really soaked up the liquid; I was using heels of homemade wheat bread and didn't want the consistancy to be too coarse. You can throw in whatever nuts/fruits/candy you have on hand, you substitute flavored creamers for some of the milk, can top it with whipped cream, ice cream, sauces, yogurt -- the possibilities are endless. This one's going right to the front of my recipe book.

One Bowl Buttercream Frosting
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?? A super frosting, all around terrific recipe! I have tried many recipes from this site but was never inspired enough (postive or negative) to post a comment. However, this recipe rocks. I did have to tweak it based on what I had on hand -- I used stick margerine, and substituted nonfat dry milk for the cocoa, because I wanted a vanilla frosting (I substitute NFDM for 1/3 of the sugar in most of my baking recipes). I think because I used margarine, which is more watery than butter, I only had to use about half the milk. Anyway, the taste is absolutely yummy. It's a great consistancy and eminently spreadable, even on a crumbly baked-with-applesauce-instead-of-oil cake. Easy to make and apply, delicious, what more could you ask for? This recipe isn't just a keeper, it's going to be laminated for a place in my recipe hall of fame! Love it!!!!!!!
