BREAD PUDDING MUFFINS
Photos and recipe by Chef Joey
Here is a fast Funday Sunday treat for you and your friends/family!
Basic bread pudding recipe:
… for every cup of cubed bread you need one egg, beaten.
The joy of this is you can make small batches!
Each cup of bread needs 1/2 cup of milk to soften it. For example, if you have 2 cups of bread (any kind), place in bowl and add 1 cup of milk. Four cups of bread calls for 2 cups of milk, etc …
For each cup, use 1 egg.
When you have your final tally:
Whip the eggs, add 1/2 tsp vanilla and 2 tbsp of sugar per cup of mix.
For example, 4 cups of bread mix calls for 8 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla to be added.
Whip it all up; mix with the eggs.
When it is all mixed, portion into cup cake tins …
… and bake at 375 F for 15 to 20 minutes!

Stuffed Heart-Shaped❤ Vegan Spinach-and-Cashew Ravioli
1 1/2 cups semolina flour
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry or all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup finely diced onion
1/2 cup finely chopped raw cashews
1/2 cup spinach
Mix the flour and 1 teaspoonful of salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix together 1 tablespoonful of olive oil and the water.
Add to the flour and mix until fully combined (add water as needed).
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
Heat the remaining olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat and add the garlic and onion. Cook until the onions are translucent.
Add the cashews, spinach and remaining salt and cook until the spinach is fully wilted and no water remains, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Place the dough on a floured cutting board and roll out to form a flat, even rectangular shape.
Cut the dough in half, forming two squares of the same size.
Spoon the filling onto one half of the dough in small mounds about 2 inches apart.
Place the other half of the dough on top and cut around the filling using a heart-shaped cookie cutter.
Press firmly with a fork around the edges of the ravioli.
Boil for about 8 minutes and serve with your favorite pasta sauce!
