Autumn brings Flowers, candles & baking

It is Autumn.  I have started a bit of baking and out come the candles and fall flowers.
I love the scent of burning candles in my kitchen from early morning when I am drinking my coffee to late evening.
Today,  I have Vanilla and Pumpkin Spice burning . Boy! does it smell heavenly when you walk in the door. Such a welcoming  feeling to see them burning too.
 I baked a low-fat  bread pudding yesterday and put it in the freeer, We have guests coming next week and I wanted to get a jump on dessert. As you all know I love to cook for company. My company this time is family. My sister & her husband & Karen loves to cook too.She makes the best apple pie.....her crusts are to perfect! She is always nominated to bring the pies for family get togethers... and we thoroughly enjoy sitting in the kitchen discussing cookbooks & recipes  and laughing over silly things. Of course we have a bottles  good wine to compliment the moments. So go ahead light those candles and enjoy the Autumn all day long.....

Here is the bread pudding. I have added fresh peaches to my recipe in place of dried fruit.
The recipe is easy and a great use for left over crusty bread. 

 Bread Pudding

4 eggs beaten
2 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 T pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cardaman or ground cinnamon
Mix & beat those together and set aside
In an ungreased 2 qt baking dish toss 4 cups of French Bread cubes or any crusty bread and 1/3 cup dried fruit of your choice. Pour the egg mxture over  the bread cubes.
Bake in 350 oven about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the pudding comes out clean. Cool. Serve warm  with your favorite sauce or whipped cream. Makes  8 servings.
Bon Appetite!
