Easy Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding

Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding

Dulce de leche is a thick, sweet milk caramel that has a unique – and addictive – flavor that is unlike that of any other caramel sauce. It is made from milk and sugar, which are cooked together until both the sugar and the milk solids are caramelized and flavorful.

Spiced Rum Rice Pudding

Spiced Rum Rice Pudding

Rice pudding was a dish that I only ate at my grandmother’s house when I was growing up. While she didn’t always make it herself from scratch (she sometimes did, and bought Kozi Shack at other times), it was always a creamy treat that I looked forward to when I visited. Perhaps it is because of those memories with my grandmother, but rice pudding has ... Read More »

The classic French dessert is halfway between a custard and a cake in consistency, with the slice-ability of a cake and the eggy richness of a custard. Clafoutis are traditionally made with cherries, but can be made with any type of fruit, including pears, plums and strawberries. This Strawberry Clafoutis ... Read More »

Vanilla Pots de Creme

Vanilla Pots de Creme with Rodelle

Vanilla beans are often use in custard recipes because it is easy to infuse them into hot milk and cream.

Perfect Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

Rich Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one of my favorite comfort foods. Though there are a few gourmet rice pudding stores out there (very, very few), rice pudding remains something that is best made and eaten at home.
