Bread Pudding recipe. My Mum made the best bread pudding ever, she used suet instead of butter as in this recipe, I remember the wonderful smell of the spices that filled the kitchen. Traditionally made to use up stale bread. I think I will make one soon, doubt if it will be as good as hers though
I found this image interesting because pf the message it has. And it has a bunch of pictures of kids in the form om a moon. It reminds me when I was younger and I used to do these types of things for my parents.
Yule Log: A traditional French bûche de Noël always looks just the right side of cutely enchanting, and there is nothing hard to like about its tender, melting chocolatiness. But I warm to it most of all for the rich pagan symbolism: it is no less than a cake-emulation of the log that the Norsemen would drag home through the streets to burn in celebration of the winter solstice and to honour the gods and hope, thus, to cajole from them a good year to come.
