Best Bread Pudding Sauce

Last week I posted my Simple Croissant Bread Pudding and it was napped in this Best Bread Pudding Sauce. And as much as I love that bread pudding (or just about any bread pudding) I think the sauce always “makes” it. Are ya with me?

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

On my site already is a recipe for Scalloped Potatoes Like Your Grandma Made. I love those and they are def a go-to at my house, especially after any holiday with ham (when I often sprinkle in both cheese and ham between the layers). But if you look at that post and get down to the comments and discussion,  you’ll see that these Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes also hit a nostalgic note, too. I know this recipe actually predates my “Grandma” potatoes, maybe by decades. Deb asked about these the other day, so I hope you’re following! Thanks to you, I was “forced” to eat two big helpings of this last night, lol!

Original Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding

Original Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding

I was just a kid the first time I had the Original Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding. For a while, every year, my folks would rent a cabin on Big Spirit Lake in Iowa, sometimes with my cousins. Maybe I was five, maybe six, and this was an old green, peeling paint kind cabin, the front porch converted to bunk beds, right on the lake. The last time I was in Spirit Lake it was still there, decades later.
