Got the winter blues? A warm bread pudding infused with pineapple and coconut might be just the tropical jolt you need to shake off those doldrums. And a healthy dose of caramel sauce topping it all of couldn't hurt either!

A fantastic way to eat your oatmeal - baked into this creamy, rich "pudding." It's rich enough for dessert, and nutritious enough for breakfast! Vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free, too.

Dates give this luscious "cake a sweet earthiness", and a scoop of ice cream is the perfect complement with its "homey" tones of honey and ginger. Swee San says this comforting dessert is best served "right before bed." Sweet dreams. :)

Caramel Bread Pudding with Bananas and Peanut Butter Chips

Swee San bakes up this wonderful warm pudding inspired by Nigella Lawson's Caramel Croissant Pudding - only Swee's is made with regular white bread, and stars bananas and peanut butter chips. It's so good, she insists, "you don't always have to wait till the bread is stale to make this pudding."

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

from Pattycake

Today is Thanksgiving up in Canada, and it being the country I hail from, I get a bit nostalgic for the flavors and aromas that would always permeate the house on this particular day of the year. The highlight of Thanksgiving is of course the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. There would be turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce, and plenty of side dishes, but it was always the dessert that had me hold back from getting completely stuffed during the main course. For you see, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie. 

Now, pumpkin pie is a wonderful thing, but there's another option which my wonderful partner and wife came up with a few years ago that takes the pumpkin out of the pie, so to speak, and it totally rocks my world. She calls it Patty's Pumpkin Pudding, but it's essentially a crustless pumpkin pie that will make your nose swoon and your taste buds soar with delight. Seriously, this stuff is like pumpkin nirvana.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
