About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

"LEFTOVER RICE" PUDDING WITH CINNAMON AND RAISINS (from Robin Miller Quick Fix Meals)

SERVES 4

Rice pudding is so warm and soothing. What's not wonderful is slaving over a hot stove to get to it! This Quick Fix version is the perfect recipe for leftover cooked rice. In fact, it's so delicious, it's worth making extra rice just for the dessert.
••
2/3 cup low-fat milk
1/2 of an 8-ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese
2 cups leftover cooked rice (regular or quick-cooking)
3/4 cup dark raisins (we like Craisins)
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, stir together the milk and cream cheese until blended and smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and set over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then continue to simmer until the liquid reduces and the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve the pudding warm, at room temperature, or
chilled-every way is delicious!
"RICE PUDDING IS SO WARM
and soothing."

Total Time; 15 minutes
PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES
ACTIVE COOKING TIME: 10 MINUTES

QUICK FIX IT YOUR WAY:
Store leftover rice in freezer
bags or plastic containers in the
freezer for up to 3 months so
you can make this dessert any
time. There's no need to thaw
the rice before cooking.
