  1. Yummo - hadn't had B&B Pudding since I was a child, just after the war, when all sweets were made at home out of what was available.

    Must try making some!

    2. Can I have your recipe for spinach bake? I cannot eat spinach but I do eat Asian Bok Choy and reckon that would substitute.

    3. Hi JohnD I wrote the recipe on my post today if you have not got buffalo cheese you can use ordinary cream cheese and add whatever flavours you like.

  3. Bread pudding...my favorite dessert! Found a restaurant (where I used to live) that had excellent bread pudding (better than my Mom used to make) ate it once and they went out of business! :-( I might have to make me some ginger beer...the spinach bake looks yummy! And just look at your garden after the rain! Beautiful!

  4. Cathy,

    You've been busy in the kitchen. It must have had a wonderful aroma from the bread and butter pudding. I like the look of the spinach bake! Yum.

    Thanks for linking to Sunlit Sunday. I shouldn't have read your post until after I had breakfast!
