OMG Kitz you did it again!!! I always know when looking for a recipe if you have one in the catagory to make that first. I didn't have the Aborio Rice but did have Calrose Short Grain, No evaporated milk so substituted Heavy Cream which I pretty much always have a quart or two of... no raisins??? Used dried cranberries instead. Was a tad bit concerned since my old recipe of Rice Pudding was made with eggs... but figured what the heck you know what you are doing... so went with it. Am I ever glad I did, this is really a very nice rich, but not too rich pudding that will make a wonderful dessert with tonights meal and because I doubled it ( I do love rice pudding) I will have plenty for snacks and treats this week. Thank you for another Kittencal wonderful and delicious recipe!!!
