There is only one good place to start: that is with Caramelized Pear Bread Pudding, baby!
First, I was forced to simmer the pears in lots of butter and sugar. It was torture, I tell you.
Then the recipe made me bake it over the Challah Bread that had been soaking in vanilla custard overnight . How dare they.
Look what happened! I was burdened with this heart stopping desert that even my 10 year old swooned for. I should be put in jail for this.
This recipe came from Meg's unbelievable book "Rustic Fruit Desserts" that, in many ways, was one of the inspirations for starting this blog about how even disorganized artist mothers can have blog-worthy moments in our lives. Note the word "moments". We can't claim to live like this all the time. But I like the idea of catching the beautiful moments when they happen, and I think Meg and I inspire each other to do that.
I promise there will be a "stitchy" post soon, so as to live up to what we've named this crazy venture. Meg, maybe you want to post the first "stitch"?
Today: eat something that just makes you happy, even if it isn't technically healthy. Mental health will improve.
