I get so excited this time of year! I love #GirlScoutCookieSeason. In years past, we would get knocks on the door from local girl scouts selling their beloved cookies. #GirlScoutCookie
I am honored to partner with Girl Scouts - Diamonds, Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, as well as, Ghidotti Agency to help kick off "The What's Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Campaign" for 2021. #partner
The Girl Scout Program is so valuable to girls. This program helps support all future generations to come. I was a #girlscout myself over 50 years ago! I couldn't wait to sell my cookies. I still remember working to earn my badges. I couldn't wait to be a Girl Scout as a young girl. #OnceaGirlScoutAlwaysaGirlScout.
Girl Scouting builds courage, confidence, and character. All of these traits make the world a better place for each of us. The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches each girl to build entrepreneurial skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics that will last her lifetime.
Girl Scouts is 2.5 Million strong! More than 1.7 million girls and over 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. - (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) ™ to change the world!
This year the Girl Scouts - Diamonds troops #GirlScoutDiamonds don't have the same opportunity to post up at local grocery stores due to COVID-19 Restrictions. How can we help? It is more important than ever to help the Girl Scout Cookie program become a success!

NEW ORLEANS STYLE BREAD PUDDING - IN HONOR OF MARDI GRAS - TASTE OF NEW ORLEANS"
Here we have made it to the end of January. We are thinking of all things Mardi Gras, wishing we could be like normal years, with the parades, foods, trips to New Orleans. The Pandemic has thrown us a huge curve ball for things we miss.
However, I decided to whip up a bread pudding New Orleans' style! This bread pudding was rich in flavor and did not disappoint! I might have eaten way toooooo much! Boy, was it good! Yes, it is easier than you think to make it. Just need a little time on your hands and patience. Oh, and some good Bourbon!
Here's the scoop:
FOR THE BREAD PUDDING:
TAKE OUT OF FRIDGE &
P.S. About 55 minutes into the 5 minutes left for baking - I took out of oven and poured the Bourbon Sauce throughout the bread pudding. Place back in oven and bake for another 5 minutes. SO GOOD!
Some people wait and put the Bourbon Sauce on the individual bowl servings. TRY IT MY WAY! YUM!
The result is a rich soaked Bourbon Bread Pudding!
