I'm Bread Winning!

Hey there, now more than ever I'm aware of the word "winning", but I am winning with bread today, sooo please excuse the title. :-) Speaking of, I do find myself saying "the situation" plenty on Cooking for Real and in life, trust me it was all pre-Jersey Shore. Sorry if it makes you think about GTL when all you wanna do is think about food to escape. Funny when normal everyday words and phrases get new pop-culture meanings. Remember Paris Hilton and "that's hot"? Well, I have a situation here, a recipe just came out of the oven that's hot and hopefully it's a winner! :-) Can't wait to share the details with you ...I haven't even cracked into it yet, but be sure it will be a very small crack and then I'll look for someone with a better metabolism to finish it off. It's in my Emerilware cast iron lasagna dish. I'm still in my test kitchen transferring recipes from my journal to my computer while I cook menus for season 10 of Cooking for Real. I'm enjoying this calm before the storm of taping the show. Here, it's all me, but in the studio I'm on a crew of 40+ professionals putting a show together. It's such a team effort and I miss my co-workers! I can't wait to get back!! As usual with recipe testing for future shows I can't give all the details, but I can show you how this dish started ...It's in a show I call "Sugar n Spice" for the holidays, So this won't air until it cools down again, but imho it's worth the weight, ahem wait. :-)

Hope you are having a great week in food! Cook a bit, eat out a bit, read up a bit ... but enjoy it, food is The Great Escape!

Too bad I don't live closer - I'd be a taste tester in a heartbeat! :) It looks like a winning dish to me! Next time you're testing recipes Aly and I may need to find our way to NYC :)

BTW I made the Easy Chicken Pot Pie (and wrote about it!) and it was fabulous! Tell Natina I said hi! And I still need to try her corn! LOL

That sure looks like one killer bread pudding to me! My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures! it too early to start thinking about my holiday menu? lol!!

Love the play on words and my money's on that dish being some sort of deluxe money bread or bread pudding. Monkey bread is a huge weakness of mine and a Christmas brunch staple. And now I want some...
