When December hits, our employees’ minds (including my own) go straight to holiday décor and bread pudding!  The mansion is absolutely GORGE right now with the holiday décor provided by JT Designs, our beautiful fireplaces making the mansion cozy and inviting, and my mouth is already watering just thinking about our famous Toasted Croissant Bread Pudding!  This is the dessert of choice for many of our events this month (both wedding and corporate)!

For the perfect dessert for your next holiday party, family get together, or a surprise for Santa on Christmas Eve, use the simple recipe below and there will be no coal in your stocking!
