Chocolate Whiskey Pudding

Chocolate Whiskey Pudding \ PasstheSushi.com

The days are now a wee bit longer, and mother nature is finally kissing us with a hint of warmth. My St. Patty’s day indulgence of whiskey pudding and other treats are now looming over me as I want to be outside thinking of hot summer days. But I can promise the guilt was worth every smooth bite. Pudding is one of those desserts that we should all take on a few times. It’s so darned convenient in those tiny cups that you can buy at the market. But they are no where near as good as the home made […]

White Chocolate Mousse for Pass the Cook Book Club

white-chocolate-mousse-0315

In all the craziness, I haven’t busted open the cookbooks since October, for the Pass the Cook Book Club! I am super excited to be back with the club. This month Christiane from Taking On Magazines picked the recipes from  The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook. All three of the recipes she picked sounded out of this world! Choosing one was rough, but I chose wisely. I love Christiane’s site. She and I often flip through the same magazines, and have even teamed up in the past on the same recipe. She has my kind of taste buds (except, I have a […]

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Spice Glaze

Still trying to figure out that holiday menu? That’s ok, because I am too. I have 99 pages marked and magazine recipes flying about and I know that when it comes down to it, the same old sides will be staring my family down the day of. But, if you are looking for something that you could break into steps and make a few days before, this pumpkin bread pudding is perfect. I made the pumpkin loaves a few days before  I wanted to make the pumpkin bread, snacked on a few slices for myself, and when I was ready […]

White Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie

Some of you may know this, but I sling comic books for a living. And let me tell you – there has never been a better time to be a nerd. Between the Big Bang Theory (and the 9 million people that ask my if I’m Penny and if it’s really ‘like that’ every single week – seriously, Penny?! That’s kind of an insult… and kind of not all at the same time…), GOOD superhero movies galore, and freakin fantastic comics, its the dream life. Normal people buy comics. Nerds buy comics. Hipsters buy comics. Girls buy comics. Families buy […]

Nutter Butter Banana Pudding – in Jars!

Nutter Butter Banana Pudding from PasstheSushi.com

Motto of the week “Instagram that shit!” Which would have probably been more awesome if I had a cell phone signal for like 5 minutes while tucked away in the mountains of Virginia and her half-sister to the west. A 4 day weekend with no map or plan in which I learn that even though the memories are about the trip and not the destination, sometimes a little preparedness goes a long way. We kicked off the day one by heading up to Hagerstown to pre-ride an upcoming race course and visit some friends. The course was BORING – straight up a hill and […]

Thin Mint Trifles

There is something so awesome about Girl Scout cookies. From childhood memories of selling them myself (though,  I never made it past Brownie) to a secret love for the little buggers, they are awesome. So, when I saw something like 20 boxes in my father’s pantry, I first worried that he was stocking up for doomsday, then ‘borrowed’ a few boxes for creation. We’ve been enjoying sweet desserts with the classic Girl Scout cookies hidden in here and there for weeks. I saw these beautiful Tagalong Peanut Butter Parfaits last year on My Kitchen Addiction and fell in love with the […]

Butterscotch Krimpet Bread Pudding

I often wonder how I portray myself on this old blog of mind. People tell me they like my writing style and I sit and try to figure out what that means. Simply, I just try to be myself. No, there are some stories you are never going to get. Mainly because without a martini or two, they simply aren’t as interesting. Get me tipsy and I’ll tell you anything. I am not a mom blogger, diet, health, family friendly, or any sort of specialized blogger that would work to get me in a nitch with people. Sometimes I wonder if I […]

Sticky Toffee Pudding

There’s something you don’t realize until you are well into your adult years – you look around and see that the friends you know all have children, are moving far away or just evolving in a direction that is not as connected to you any more. Sure you can catch up from time to time, hang out on occasion and meet up for meals, but its not like when you were younger where you played with the same group of friends every day. It’s also harder to meet people, between work and life where do you meet new friends if […]

Creole Bread Pudding with Bourbon Whiskey Sauce

I have been working on trying to create a good sight. A good food blog. I have no aspirations of becoming the next Pioneer Woman (mainly because I doubt Handsome is ever going to trade in his power drill for cowboy boots) but I do want to create something I am proud of. I have worked hard at trying to develop my photography skills because I enjoy it and want to learn more about taking a good picture. In the past year I have submitted to tastespotting, foodgawker and the likes so many times that Handsome no longer has to […]
