Riz Au Lait (French Rice Pudding)

"Mmmmh! Milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Those aromas will take you back to your childhood. This dish is great as dessert or even for breakfast. There are so many variations on rice pudding; fruits, nuts, exotic spices like cardammon, star anise, clove...I like them all. But this simple version is the one I like the most. It tastes best with whole milk. I have substituted some of the milk with heavy cream because I had some left over and that made it even more creamy. It tastes great hot and cold."

"I grew up in Germany but my background is German/Spanish/Irish/Native American. I would say my cooking style is a mix of all of them. I like to cook simple clean food. I usually don't use any packaged or processed products. Most of the time I make everything from scratch. I use only organic meat and dairy products and many other organic products and I believe it makes a big difference not only healthwise but also in taste. We have two kids. A 3 year old and a 9 year old. I try not to adapt the food for them too much. They are used to eating what we eat. Growing up I didn't really learn how to cook. At least I didn't care enough to remember anything.But living centrally in Germany I was able to travel and eat European food in it's respective Countries: Italian food in Italy, Spanish food in Spain, French food in France and so on. I really missed that when I moved to the States. I started cooking the week after I got married and have been cooking and teaching myself ever since. Now cooking is not only one of my two hobbies (photography being the other one)but I also see it as therapy. It calms me down after a stressful day, it cheers me up when I feel down and it helps me center my thoughts when I have a lot on my mind. :) Thank you so much to whoever gave me the gift of premium membership. I really appreciate it :) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/26630178@N05/3510953178/" title="banner3 by *sparkly*, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3387/3510953178_b35b3086a8.jpg" width="500" height="250" alt="banner3" /></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegn%20swap/vegnswap.jpg> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/NZT-2-AnnaciasZaarTagbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg">"
