Bread Pudding I
I made this today and it was fabulous I used a loaf of very stale wheat French bread. I was concerned because the bread was so hard it was difficult to cut into chunks. I made the following adjustments. 1. 5 eggs in lieu of 6 as reviewers suggested. 2. 2 cups fat free evaporated milk and 1 cup water. 3. Splenda in lieu of sugar 4. Semi sweet chocolate chips instead of raisins. I made a caramel bourbon sauce to serve over it. Because the bread was so hard I let it sit for about 15 minutes before baking. It was perfect! I like dense bread pudding and this was just to my liking. Will definitely make again. Next time I may add a bit more Splenda.

Hash Brown Casserole II
I made this today and it got mixed reviews. Some thought it was fantastic and other thought it needed more work and perhaps more time in the oven. I made a double batch and followed tips from past reviewers. I eliminated the butter. I used three cans of soup (mushroom, chicken, and celery), which is what I had on hand. I did not add a topping. I let the potatoes thaw as suggested. I mixed everything last night and baked the casserole today. After over 2 hours it was nowhere near done. I then cranked up the over to 385 and baked another hour. It was brown around the edges, which provided some much needed texture. Some guest felt it still did not seem done. Also, my sons felt it would have been more enjoyable had I used cream of cheddar soup in lieu of the ones I used. I think I agree. Also, I baked it in a round, deep dish instead of a 9x13 pan. The depth may have influenced the cooking time and texture. I need a good potato recipe that will feed a crowd and will continue to work on this until I perfect it!

Easy Chicken Casserole
I have used this recipe many times, with the following additions: 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds added to the cracker crumbs, a can of cream of celery soup to make more sauce, and thyme and garlic power to the chicken for additional flavor. My family loves it served over brown rice.
