Chefing in Newport, Tenn.
In a mansion on top of a hill I prepared Almond Bread Pudding as dessert for my friends, Sue and Greg Schacker. The mansion is the former home of the Stokely family of Stokely pork&bean fame. While the weather is an improvement over Minnesota, it is still winter. Besides the babbling broke at the base of the hill, turkey vultures winter in tall, nearby trees and wait to nest in a limestone cliff.
Sorry, this recipe is not in A Circus Girl's Cookbook. It is online so click on the one for 'Key ingredient by Helen'). Not finding any almond flavoring or amaretto, I substituted vanilla in the pudding and Bailey's Irish Creme in the sauce. Dee-lish! Try it for your friends.
