Banana Caramel Bread Pudding


I needed to use up some ripe bananas so I decided to try a banana caramel bread pudding. I don’t have an exact recipe because I just winged it, but I buttered four ramekins, drizzled caramel sauce in the bottom of each cup, tore up some bread, topped them with sliced bananas and poured a milk, egg and cinnamon mixture over the top. I baked them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. The end result was quite amazing.


Paulie’s: Homemade Rigattoni Bolognese


If you’re ever craving a great bowl of pasta, Paulie’s Restaurant on Westheimer in Houston is the place to go. Their pasta is homemade and is so delicious. My favorite is the Rigatoni Bolognese with ground veal and beef, tomato, cream, red wine, basil and Parmesan.
