Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chunk Bread Puddings

This recipe is from the 2004 Cooking Light cookbook. It yielded two servings, baked in 6oz ramekins. I wanted to make smaller servings in my 3.5 oz ramekins. I altered this slightly by adding more milk and eggs, an extra ¼ cup of bread – and I didn’t measure the chocolate. The recipe called for 1 oz of semisweet chocolate to be coarsely chopped. I opted to use chocolate chips – and I didn’t measure how much I used. I’d guess about 1 ½ tablespoons, per ramekin. (Original recipe – served 2 for 319 calories each. This serves 4)


2 cups (1/2 inch) cubed Hawaiian sweet bread
1 1/3 cup 2% milk
2 tablespoons
1 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon Kahlua
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Cooking spray
Chocolate Chips
Whipped cream – or whipped topping.


Preheat oven to 350. Spray each of the ramekins with cooking spray.

Arrange bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, until toasted. Remove from oven and decrease temp to 325.

Combine milk and next five ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add bread, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill for 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.

Fill each of the four ramekins half full with the bread mixture. Sprinkle some chocolate chips over each. Fill each of the four ramekins with the remaining bread mixture, and top with more chocolate chips.
