Gluten Free (or not) Blackberry Bread Pudding

Some days I just want to be okay with being sad about the ending of my marriage. I have my moments where I empower myself and hit the gym, you know to get my sexy back. But I also have those days when I just want to stuff my face with a sweet carby snack. Enter: Blackberry Bread Pudding. This recipe is one of my favorites because it’s sweet and like home without the Alabama. It makes my skies blue and my tummy happy. And for shits and giggles I add a scoop of Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss vanilla ice cream on top and allow myself to indulge in sweet happiness, because not all days are good days but dessert will always be there for you.
