Cinnamon and Apple Croissant Bread Pudding/FoodieExtravaganza

With the holidays over and some rather cold weather settling in for a few days, I was looking for something from the warm and comfort food category. That is where this Cinnamon and Apple Croissant Bread Pudding comes in. There are few recipes as basic as bread pudding, but it is also versatile, tasty and great for using up leftovers. This bread pudding is one of the lightest ones I have ever had, and I give credit to the croissants for that. The apples add a small bit of crunch, while the cinnamon and the chocolate drizzle tie up the comfort food in a bow.

Grandma's Fried Chicken / #SundaySupper

Grandma's Fried Chicken is a recipe from my mother in law. She is no longer with us, but my husband tells me that she used to make this for the family when he were growing up. She also made it for me, my husband and my son whenever she would come to visit us! She lived far away from us, but every year she would visit for my sons birthday, and she would make her fried chicken. It became a wonderful family tradition!
I thought this meal would be appropriate because this month is National Sunday Supper Month, and we are celebrating eating around the table, together as a family every Sunday! I just love the idea, don't you?! I’d like to encourage you to sign the pledge, and commit to sharing Sunday Supper at least once a month this year, along with me! Please follow this link and sign up! http://sundaysuppermovement.com/sunday-supper-pledge/ 
As we know, Sunday Supper starts off as one day a week and soon becomes a way of life. And that’s our mission, to get as many folks as possible around the family table. The biggest gift we can give to our family is to hug, laugh, share our stories and enjoy great meals together.

Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls

These  Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls are a fun and tasty party food for your New Years Eve celebration! They take some time to make, but most of the time spent is on prep, cutting and dicing, so they can be rolled earlier in the day, or even the day before and fried up before guests arrive. They stay hot for quite a while, and even at room temperature they are fantastic! I have also made these for vegetarian guests, and they were a hit. Just leave out the chicken!

Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait / #FLStrawberry / #SundaySupper

Strawberries in the winter! Can you believe it? As a little girl growing up, we seldom had fresh fruit in the winter. It was unheard of. When I would have a craving for strawberries and there was snow on the ground in Ohio, I was told to "wait for summer"! Ugh, do you know how long that is when you are 8 years old? F-o-r-e-v-e-r!  But now I am an adult and one of the things I am loving~Fresh from Florida Strawberries! And I mean FRESH!, and in the winter! I can enjoy A Taste of Summer All Winter Long! These strawberries are amazing. I tasted them and I immediately had to make this Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait. It is such a great way to start your day. This recipe contains 8 strawberries, which just so happens to be enough to fullfill your Vitamin C requirements for the day, and they are only 50 calories! You can find out more about Florida Strawberries from Strawberry Sue!

This month for the Bundt Bakers group the theme is "Naughty or Nice". Isn't that cute? I was tempted to do a naughty cake just for fun, but I baked a "nice" cake because I already had everything! Yes, sometimes I am that boring and practical! This Peppermint Candy Cane Bundt Cake is fun and tasty and cute, so I think it hits all the marks for something you would enjoy!
