delicious honey

So after fixing a beautiful dinner with my family I was flipping through one of my food mags and found a recipe for rice pudding. I had all the ingredients in my pantry...

Bring 3 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of whipping cream, 1/2 cup arborio rice (or any other short grain rice), 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom (if you've got it on your spice shelf) and a pinch of salt to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer (small bubbles people it's milk it will boil over and make a mess on your stove). Stir often for about 20-25 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender.
Remove from heat. Stir in 1/4 cup of whipping cream. Let stand for 5 minutes. Or even chill in your fridge if you prefer it cold.
Scoop into dish and sprinkle with ground pistachios or any other chopped nuts you might have laying around. Drizzle with honey!

This is so amazing and simple. Cream and Rice is such a comfort food for me!
