Rice Pudding (Without Raisins)

"My wife really, really wanted to try my rice pudding without the raisins, so here it is. After trying this, she declared that this is the best rice pudding she's ever had. The only problem with the other recipe, in her mind, was the raisins."

Ready In:




  • Bring two cups of water to a boil. Stir in rice and reduce heat to Low. Simmer for 20 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally until the water is absorbed.
  • Stir half-and-half, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the cooked rice. Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking and clumping. Continue for about 15 minutes, until thick and creamy.
  • Stir in egg and milk and cook for another 5 minutes.

  1. Rice pudding w/o rsisens


I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
