Arroz con Leche

Arroz Con Leche

Arroz con leche is Mexican rice pudding whose name literally means “rice with milk”. I’ve seen many versions of arroz con leche that use different kinds of rice, different kinds of sugar and different kinds of milk. Some use sweetened condensed milk, while others use regular milk. Some swear by brown rice, while others stick to white rice. To me, this means that there is ... Read More »

Cherry Pie Rice Pudding

Cherry Pie Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a dish that is typically served quite plain. If anything, it is usually flavored with a vanilla and topped with a little bit of cinnamon. It rarely gets dressed up. This is because rice pudding is known as comfort food, the kind of dish that you enjoy on a quiet night by yourself at home, rather than the kind of dish that ... Read More »

Nutella Rice Pudding

Nutella Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one of my favorite comfort food dishes. I almost always save leftover steamed rice, whether it is homemade or came from leftover Chinese takeout, so I know that I can whip up a batch when the mood strikes me. I usually make my rice pudding with vanilla and simply let the flavor of the milk shine through in the finished pudding, but ... Read More »

Rice Pudding with Agave Syrup

Rice Pudding with Agave Syrup

Rice pudding is not a particularly sweet dessert to begin with, as it focuses primarily on the rice and milk that make up its bulk. But sweetness is what makes it dessert instead of a pleasant side dish, so sugar is really a key ingredient. I typically use regular sugar for my rice pudding. I have dressed it up before with a little drizzle of ... Read More »

Eggnog Rice Pudding

Eggnog Rice Pudding

Eggnog is widely available in stores through New Years, but sales and consumption probably peak right around Christmas Eve. I know I don’t drink much after Christmas is over. I do often have leftovers, though, and never turn down the chance to use them up in a tasty holiday-ish recipe. My leftover eggnog this year went into a batch of eggnog rice pudding. The rice ...

Coffee and Cream Rice Pudding

Coffee and Cream Rice Pudding

I think that vanilla rice pudding will always be my favorite. Not only is there something very comforting about it, but the plainness of the rice and milk pudding is a great canvas for vanilla to really stand out. That said, there experimenting with new flavors is still a fun thing to do because it both gives you more options (when you have a success) ... Read More »

Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Almost nothing beats a sweet and creamy mango when it is at peak ripeness. Nothing except the pairing of mango and sticky rice. The thing that really makes the Thai combination delicious is that the rice is lightly sweetened and flavored with coconut milk. Combined with the starchiness of the rice, the coconut milk gives the dessert a very rich texture. It blends well with ... Read More »

Baked Rice Pudding

Baked Rice Pudding

 Rice pudding is comfort food, no question about it. Sweet and creamy, it’s a relatively substantial custard dish made thick with rice and (usually) studded with juicy raisins. I usually make mine on the stovetop, starting either with leftover rice or with uncooked rice, depending on what is available to me at the moment. I’ve even turned stove-cooked rice pudding into ice cream before. While I like ... Read More »
