Banana, Pecan, and Coconut Cream Crepe Filling (or Pudding)

Yes, you read that right. The “cream” is pudding like in consistency so, of course, feel free to eat it sans crepe. Peter and I each ate 3 cream filled crepes and we were very well satiated to say the least. There was enough cream leftover for another serving.

Grocery Girl Pineapple and Carrot Bread Pudding A.K.A…

What that character known as the Easter Bunny eats while visiting Hawaii over Christmas. 

I needed to use up some carrots. Also, I happen to really like bread pudding (If you haven’t noticed.) and pineapple bread pudding is pretty top notch in general in my opinion. Springtime makes me want pineapple. (This is not the case for my husband, Peter, but he stated of this tested recipe, “If it weren’t for the pineapple, I’d give it high marks.”)

This bread pudding does NOT need to rest in the fridge overnight. You can make it right before the meal. Also, for people who don’t care for the soft texture characteristic of most bread puddings, the carrot lends this dish a bit of a bite. Enjoy!

I’ve been researching freezing quiche. Recently, I posted about making two quiches (of the same variety) at the same time.  (I suggested doing this for Mother’s Day in case you were entertaining.) However, entertaining isn’t the only time you might choose to make two quiches at the same time; it makes a lot of sense to bake two quiches at once. Take into account you’re probably using refrigerated pie crusts and they usually come in boxes of two. Therefore, you can use both in one instance. (Frozen, not yet baked pie crust does not have an extremely long freezer life.) But also, baked quiche freezes very well!

  • Allow the quiche to cool COMPLETELY after baking it and before you freeze it.
  • Once the quiche is cooled completely, wrap it in foil (yes, foil) and then wrap in freezer (butcher’s) p...
