Just for fun, I enter my favorite pie recipes in area contests and fairs. This one is a guaranteed winner. It's so pretty with a golden crust and drizzles of glaze. Plus, the coconut adds a tropical accent to the tangy pineapple inside.

I first learned about these quick crowd-pleasers from a next-door neighbor when I sniffed the delightful aroma of a batch baking.

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

All my leftover bread ends (raisin bread is a favorite in this house) and buns go in the freezer. Then, when I've stashed away enough, I whip up a batch of this pudding. It's an all-occasion dish—I've made it for holidays, potlucks, picnics...for any occasion or no occasion! I've been making my bread pudding since I was a girl—the recipe originated with my great-aunt. My husband, who cash-crops with his father and brother, loves it. We're the parents of two children, a 2-year-old girl and a boy born just last year—on Christmas morning!

One thing's certain each time I serve this...someone will ask for the recipe! My family...my husband and our children, 12 and 9—and I live on the outskirts of town. I grow my rhubarb, and my plant gets bigger every year.
