Bread pudding recipe

My husband and I traveled to Dublin a few years ago. One thing we noticed was that the people were so inviting and hospitable. Seriously, those words fell from our lips every day during our visit. Hospitality stood out like a beautiful bouquet.

It was our first time there, and our first time to meet some of my husband’s family, and we relished the love that we received.
