Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Vanilla Rice Pudding

Nothing says Christmastime like a steaming, sweet, creamy cup of homemade vanilla rice pudding! This is an excellent dessert to warm you up after playing in the snow or shopping in the cold winter weather! YUM!!!

1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup rice (Uncle Ben's Original)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups 2% milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a large, heavy skillet, bring water, rice, and salt to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for ~10 minutes until water is absorbed.
Add milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla. Increase heat to high until it just comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered ~45 minutes until mixture is thickened to a soft and creamy consistency. Stir occasionally and more frequently in the last 15 minutes.

Remove pudding from heat, divide into cups, and sprinkle very lightly with ground nutmeg. Nutmeg can be very overpowering, so be mindful not to put too much. Just a tiny sprinkle will do. Enjoy!!
