A little of this and a little of that!

Just a beautiful dragonfly enjoying it's leisure.So, I wrote about some bread pudding and said that I would have pictures and a recipe and here they are.

Tiramisu Bread Pudding
12 oz. stale bread, cubed
3 cups milk
1 tbsp instant espresso
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup chocolate chips, divided
2 tsp. vanilla
350 degrees
Put the cubed bread in whatever pan or dish you want to use, I used a 10" circle pan lined with parchment.
In a pot heat the milk, espresso, cinnamon, and sugar until warm to the touch. Ladle about half the milk into the beaten eggs to make the and whisk together. Pour the egg mixture back into the pot and add 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Stir until the chips melt and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract and pour over bread cubes. Top with the 1/4 cup of chocolate chips that were left. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve warm.
Coffee Liqueur Sauce
adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook's Whiskey Sauce
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp water
2 1/2 tbsp coffee liqueur
1 1/2 tbsp marsala wine
In a saucepan melt butter. Stir in sugar, egg yolks, and water. Cook and stir constantly over medium-low heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until sugar dissolves and mixture boils. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur and wine. Serve warm.
I didn't get a picture of the bread pudding with the mascarpone, but you can serve it with some sweetened mascarpone to give it another flavor of Tiramisu.

These are some Mocha Madaleines

And this is a purse I sewed
