I am so thankful that all my blogger fiends safely made it through hurricane Irene. I was really worried for you guys. Wish you all the best during the hurricane clean-up and that you guys haven't suffered much loss due to this whole ordeal.

Last night I had the strangest craving for rice pudding, which is weird because I have never eaten rice pudding and I don't cook or bake. So, I decided to go whip myself up a batch.

The dummy that I am decided to cook 1/4 cup of uncooked rice in some milk with sugar and cinnamon, on a low heat. And let me tell you, I had been stirring at that damn rice for more than an hour and in the end I still ended up with crunchy raw rice, a tooth achingly sweet paste and having used about 1 litre of milk.

So next time I am definitely using cooked rice and just adding it to the milk, sugar and cinnamon mix.

Thankfully I liked it and the sauce actually tasted awesome. Shame about the raw rice in it though. Once I perfect the recipe I will share it.


  1. I'm laughing. Sorry if I'm not supposed to but I can't help it.
    Better luck with the next batch. (They simple recipes online.)

  2. Mary - Oh, you are more than welcome to laugh. I am glad that my hard as a rock rice pudding could be of some use to someone, so please, laugh away.
    Thanks for the encouragement and the tip.

  3. Rice is tricky. It should be easier. I cannot make a pot of brown rice without it boiling over.

  4. I did the same thing when I made rice pudding. But hey, the directions weren't clear! :)

    Oh, and I swear by my electronic rice cooker. It was about $100 but I've totally gotten my money's worth on it. FLAWLESS rice with no fuss or monitoring. Plus, it can make other things too, like you can wake up in the morning to fresh hot oatmeal prepared just for you.


    Have you ever tried horchata?

  5. Clickerbug - your rice cooker sounds brilliant! Unfortunately I still cook rice the old fashioned way, on the stove.

    I have not tried Horchata before. In fact I had to Google it. But thanks for the suggestion.
