Raspberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding

This weekend I had some strawberries that needed to be used.  After throwing around some ideas, I suggested bread pudding as I also had a stale loaf of ciabatta.  Ben was immediately on board. He loves himself some bread pudding. Then I realized our strawberries were bad and I had raspberries in the freezer.  A recipe was born.

Apparently, I knocked this one out of the park because Ben couldn't get over how good it was.  I also sent a jar over to my friend Sarah.  I later received a text instructing me to"

1.  Give her the recipe.
2.  Make a pan for a get together at church tonight.
3.  Give the pan to her instead.

Yeah, this is pretty good stuff.

So without further ado, here is the recipe.

Two of the cutest people I know . . .

When Sam was about 6 months old we had darling family photos taken by Utah photographer Jessica Kettle.  She did a lovely job.  So lovely that I have a GIANT copy of this photo hanging in my living room.
I knew that if I ever had another child, they would also need a shot taken at the same age.

Originally I had planned to take Dannelly and do a full-blow shoot with her.  However, today we were playing during Sam's rest time and she presented me with this sweet little face.  

Giant eyes? Check.  Cute little lips?  Check.  Perfect baby? Check!
I think I have my shot.  :)

Oh, and we have teeth.

Princess Sam

Sam's teacher texted this photo to me on Friday.  Apparently Princess Sam got busted for swiping toys from his friends.  Ms. Laura assured me that a princess dress is a developmentally appropriate choice a 4 yr old boy.  

He looks so sad.  

And so pretty.

Nerd Love

Sam loves to wear glasses.  Ben found some cute nerd glasses in the Dollar Spot at Target on Monday.  Sam thought they were "super cool" and everyone took turns wearing them and having their picture taken.  We love nerds at our house.  

Yesterday I was on the phone with Buddy and when I got off I looked over and saw this little scene.  This kid cracks me up.
