Although I don't have much of an appetite these days, I do still like something Sweet now and then.
Instead of buying those stale and overly crunchy sweets at the supermarket, I realized that while I have no interest in cooking, I do enjoy baking still.
There is something almost Zen-like about measuring and sifting and stirring and waiting .. with a sweet reward at the end and sometimes soothed nerves and a more quiet feeling.
Bread Puddings are my favorite easy to make, delicious treats that are fun because whatever is in the house can become an ingredient.
I have bread, chocolate chips and I have sugar and cinnamon.
So here you have it ...
