You can’t imagine what a bowl of rice pudding can do to the soul. After a long school day, or coming home after a long day at work and longing for comfort food, this can be the cure. I watched my husband coming sometimes late at night, with an intention to skip dinner but wants something filling and comforting, and reached immediately for a bowl. Barely have time to cook? you can even have time to make dessert. Just take a look inside your fridge.
