  1. I was sitting back in my chair and actually sat up straight so I could read this properly and take notes. :) I'm bookmarking this page so I can go back and look at the recipes more closely as party time comes. I'll need something to take and these all work for me. I'm going to go look at that breakfast bread pudding now though. I LOVE breakfast foods!
