  1. This has a fantastic flavor! I was a little scepticle about how it would come out, since it was still completely liquidy about 30 minutes before it was supposed to be done, but it ended up forming a filmy layer on top and browning up just like the recipe described. It didn't firm up as much as I expected, , however, and I ended up with an awful lot of milk that wasn't soaked up by the rice, even after it cooled. I'm not sure if that's the way it's supposed to be, but it didn't really matter to me or my mother because we loved the vanilla-y flavor and the soft texture of the rice. The only change I made was to use soy milk since I can't have dairy. I might use a little bit less milk next time. I can't wait to try this tomorrow with some fresh peaches.
  2. I made a few revisions to this recipe after my first attempt at this wound up with a mess of uncooked rice. I precooked the rice then threw the rest together, this was easier, and guaranteed to be as it should be. I also added some orange zest for added flavor. With these revisions this was darned good.
  3. Thanks for posting this simple recipe. It takes no time at all to put together and then it was just a case of waiting! I had to wait a little longer though, as my rice took about 2 hours to be done. The vanilla is a nice addition I have previously always used a cinnamon stick for extra flavour. I might reduce the amount of milk and sugar a little as it was a bit 'runny' on the sweet side for my taste.


I'm the mother to two boys (Yaron °2002, Noah °2004) and I am happily married since 2000. I work as an administrative assistant in a primary school. I have liked cooking since I was a little girl, strangely enough, my mother never really enjoyed cooking, so I don't know where I am getting it from. Cooking is really taking a break for me (at least of my two boys will leave me to it). I try to involve my kids as much as possible in cooking and they already enjoy making cookies, cakes and popsicles. I like to bake so when it's their birthday I let them choose their favourite cake. This year I made a pirate ship for the youngest one and a treasure chest for my oldest. I am active in my children's school and I like to craft when there's time left, which isn't too much lately. Every night before I go to bed, I need to read at least a chapter in a book. It has become such a ritual that it is hard to sleep when I haven't. I do have quite a few cookbooks, but the ones I would miss the most if I'ld lost them (even if I don't make that much recipes out of them) are my great grandmothers cookbooks, which are partly just little pieces of paper with a recipe scribbled onto it. I also really like the cookbooks and tv-shows of Jamie Oliver and Nigela Lawson. I really like the countryside, even if I don't really live in it. (I live in a suburb of Bruges) My dream is to one day buy a small little farmhouse with just a few animals and a beautiful garden, where I could grow some veggies to can in summer. Well, one can dream can we... My pet peeves are agressive drivers, people who don't take others into consideration and who are selfish. <embed src="http://lilgreenpatch.com/fb/greentrees/badge/badge.swf?badgeId=593493549,0" quality="high" salign="lt" width="130" height="160" wmode="transparent" name="LGP" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"/> </embed> <a href="http://lilgreenpatch.com/fb/greentrees/badge/badgelanding.php?badgeId=593493549,0&src=1" > <img src="http://greenpatch.s3.amazonaws.com/clear.gif" border="0" height="160" width="130" bgcolor="#00FF66"/> </a> <a href="http://www.TickerFactory.com/"> <img border="0" src="http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10748;127/st/20080628/e/Going+to+Bretagne%2C+France/k/32aa/event.png"></a> <a href="http://lilypie.com"><img src="http://b5.lilypie.com/yoQbp1.png" alt="Lilypie 5th Birthday Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://lilypie.com"><img src="http://by.lilypie.com/3lmnp2.png" alt="Lilypie 6th to 18th Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://daisypath.com"><img src="http://dn.daisypath.com/i2lqp2.png" alt="DaisypathAnniversary Years Ticker" border="0" width="400" height="80" /></a> <a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2025848">You are now marked on my visitor map!</a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2025848"><img border=0 src="http://www.maploco.com/vmap/2025848.png" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/">Create your own visitor map!</a> Participation & Awards: <a href="http://s182.photobucket.com/albums/x11/texacorw/March%202008/?action=view¤t=thelorikeets.gif" target="_blank"><img src="http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x11/texacorw/March%202008/thelorikeets.gif" border="0" alt="March Aussie Tag Badge"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/ZaarWorldTourPartBanner.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q138/mswarzie/banner2.gif> [img]http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u132/marlittmk/banner2.gif[/img] <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
