Lighter Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Sauce

This Cooking Light recipe made for a nice birthday dessert for a friend of mine who loves the stuff. We garnished with whipped cream which is not part of the recipe.

You can toast the bread, make the sauce, and make the custard ahead if you like (I did) but don’t soak the bread too early.

Butterscotch Pudding

I saw this on Smitten Kitchen and immediately wanted to make it. I had to wait a couple of days, though, as we didn’t have dark brown sugar, haha.

I’ll confess that my first attempt at this didn’t really work – it was clumpy, and the pudding didn’t set. I checked out the comment section and made a couple of changes based on troubles others had had with the recipe – those changes are reflected here. We topped this with (mediocre) homemade whipped cream and some chocolate and butterscotch chips and brought it to a friend’s party.

Black Sesame Ice Cream

This is only maybe my second time using John’s ice cream maker. I made this recipe. It’s tasty, but the texture seems a little grainy/chalky/off to me. I think potentially the neri goma doesn’t mix in as well as I’d like. But it was still a fun thing to make.36014498175_9a302da45f_q.jpg

Blueberry and Blackberry Crumb Bars

A solid dessert from Smitten Kitchen. Stuck to the pan a bit – I was surprised parchment paper wasn’t recommended. I did half blueberries, half blackberries for a new spin because that’s what I had on hand.

Sour Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Dessert bars made with seasonal fruit seem to be working for me in the category of “desserts I actually enjoy.”

Almond Rhubarb Bars

My execution of this recipe wasn’t perfect (or very pretty), but they were quite enjoyable anyway.

Tahini Brownies

This is the first recipe I made from Milk Street, Chris Kimball’s new magazine. They were tasty! I probably didn’t need to use the fancy tahini I have for this but hey.
