Just added my own twist to this and it came out wonderful. Started by slightly browning uncooked rice and cinnamon stick in coconut oil. Add boiling water to simmered as directed. I added powdered coconut milk(mixed into one cup of hot water) after rice was cooked. Followed directions but left out the lemon and used Trader Joe's bourbon vanilla instead of rum. Also added dried cherries and dried pomegranates because my son is not a fan of raisins and butter just because its butter!! The smell alone with worth making it but the taste is perfect hot or cold! Thinking of adding on some mango slices in the morning!

Christie, I made this pudding not too long ago with the addition of 1 tsp. cardamon instead of the cinnamon stick, as I love the flavor of cardamon. I also added a handful of raisins in with the water for the rice, so they would plump up. I didn't add the lemon rind. I had this along with a Thai dinner, and it was the perfect ending to a lovely meal!

I live in Ayr, Ontario with my husband, Max and son, William. I work at the Chapters in Kitchener, but am currently on maternity leave. I love to read, so working at a book store has its advantages and disadvantages :) One of my favourite authors in Ann Rice, but I also love Dan Brown and Kelly Armstrong. I could never find a favourite cookbook...too many recipes I probably wouldn't use, thats why I love recipezaar. You can pick and choose your recipes and create your own cookbook. Currently my cookbook is a mess, I just add any recipes that sound good. I have yet to try them all :)
