Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey by Laurie Dotson

The Lord came down tonight and took my soul back to heaven, when I bit into this bread pudding.  haha!  Holy Moly, what a great recipe. Tonight is my husband’s birthday. He does not like any hype to this event.  I ask him every year what he would like to do for his big day.  And every year, for 28 years, I hear the same thing.  ” A roast dinner at home with the kids”. Done!  But this year, I just had to change it up a bit. We will finish off our dinners with a amazing bread pudding for dessert.   A special thanks to a friend of ours, Bev Haun. She FaceBook’d me this recipe.  It’s a Redneck Recipe! I’ve never considered myself a redneck, but a hilljack, that I might be:)  So this HillJack, she done, changed up the rec’pe just a tater and it, is, scrumptious!  I would invite ole’ Bev and her husband over, but they live way, down in Cincinnati.:)  i’ll eat extra for you.. Hugs!   So Happy Birthday Petie!

Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
