I have been fighting a nasty flu for the past week, so I was feeling the need for some serious comfort.
I turned to food.
I decided to finally make Brandi’s delicious sounding Smoky White Bean Chili. Super easy to make and delicious.
Served with corn bread muffins.
I added my favourite rice pudding recipe for dessert. This is the easiest rice pudding you’ll ever make.
-one tin of crushed pineapple or else a half cup or so of raisins (my boy hates pineapple)
-a tin of coconut milk
-a tin of condensed milk (I just use regular milk, actually)
-3/4 cup Arborio rice
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
-2 eggs slightly beaten
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I usually add more…)
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Throw everything in the crock pot, mix, and cook on high until it all comes together- about 3 or 4 hours (mine is pretty hot so I cook it for a couple of hours and then turn it to warm).
This is a good dessert to make when you are outside for the day and want to come in for something delicious and warm.
Trust me on this one. I don’t really even like rice pudding and I love this stuff. Let me know if you give it a whirl!
