A Very Merry (and filling) Christmas

After some party poppers (an old English tradition where we got our crowns), it was time for dessert.

Below is my mom's chocolate cake, Ms. Thea's apple pie, and my (or, rather, the Barefoot Contessa's) croissant bread pudding. Now I add a little touch to Ms. Ina Garten's near masterpiece--a whiskey sauce, in true New Orleans style. It's pretty easy--just throw butter, dark brown sugar, and whiskey in a pot and keep adding what each until the taste and consistency is right.

A Merry Christmas it was. Cheers to that.

  1. I heard about a bread pudding made out of Krispy Kreme donuts. I've never had it, but right now I'm picturing it with some of that whiskey sauce. Andre puts whiskey in everything and it's pretty much always better.

    I have that same snuggie! Is that your dad?
