  1. First off, these links are really cool, especially the bacon candy (unreal). Secondly, this is a lot like my Together Tuesday link-up. You should totally add a link to this post to my link-up on Tuesday!

  2. Several years ago, my sister in law let me borrow the most amazing cookbook. It’s called Irish Traditional Cooking , and I immediately fell in love with it. When I eventually had to give the book back, I ordered my own copy asap. I can honestly say that I have loved every recipe I have made from it! Now, to be fair, there are plenty of recipes that I have not tried (and almost certainly will never try). Things like offal and cockles just don’t appeal to me that much. 🙂 My favorite recipes so far, though, have been the breads and desserts. I made this lemon pudding for the first time for St. Patrick’s Day in 2008, and I’ve made it many times since. It’s pretty much just delightful in every way. As it bakes, the pudding separates into two layers… a dense, almost caky layer on the top, and a luscious pudding layer on the bottom. I love the mixture of creamy sweetness and lemony tartness. And adding a touch of fresh whipped cream takes it to an amazing new level. I love that it starts with such basic, straightforward ingredients, and becomes such an elegant, decadent dessert. And best of all, it’s really easy to make! Try it, and you’ll love it as much as I do!

  3. Prepare eight 6-ounce ramekins by coating them well with the soft butter and then sugar. Set the ramekins in a roasting pan that has a kitchen towel laid out on the bottom. The towel allows a bit more insulation for the puddings when baked. Set the roasting pan aside.

  4. Those are great. I love lemon cake & pudding, so they would be right up my alley. I think a chocolate cake with white chocolate pudding would be a great combination as well.
