Test Kitchen: Blueberry pecan pancake bread pudding

My preferred brunch food usually falls in the pancakes/waffles/French toast category, so when I stumbled on a recipe for blueberry pecan pancake bread pudding, I had to try it. The concept is similar to French toast and cinnamon roll casseroles I’ve made before. You prepare your bread element and then soak it in a custard mixture for several hours before baking the whole thing.

Test Kitchen: Picnic Plans

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor eating. Whether you’re planning a meal with a significant other or the kiddos, a picnic is a safe bet. Whip up some pita toasts, biscuits and candied orange peels for a real treat. Grab the blanket, basket, some napkins, and find the perfect sunny or shaded spot in the great outdoors.
