Comfort Foods...

Recommended Posts

I was wanting a yummy comfort food the other night and tried this recipe and it was fabulous. Sorry to those of you who are allergic to milk and eggs... I have no idea how this would do with substitutions.

Rice Custard

1 c. rice

2 c. milk

3 eggs

2/3/ c sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

2 T. melted butter

1/2 c. raisins (optional)

Mix all together. Bake in a 8x8 pan. Set pan in a pan of water and bake 25-30 minutes.

[There was no temp. on the recipe, it is an old church cookbook, but I baked it at 350]

I added more rice and not enough sugar and I think that I should have just stuck with the recipe. It was still good though, but I am excited to make it again and do it the "right" way :).

That sounds yummy. By the way what temperature do you cook it at? it is a bit like a flaked rice recipe I make

Bring 600mls (1 pint) of milk to the boil

Add 1 cup flaked rice, 2tbsp sugar 1/4 tsp salt.

Boil for three minutes

Add 2 beaten eggs and 1/4 tsp vanilla essence.


Nice for breakfast lunch and dessert.

My mum used to make a rice dessert in the oven, but from what I remember it was slowly cooked and it was quite creamy in the end, because of the slow cooking. Mmm yummy. Thanks for the memories.

For those that are lactose intolerant, the could use a lactose free milk.

Homemade Corn Chower, mmmm

Thai Kitchen Spring Onion Soup

Almond Breeze Chocolate drink heated

Yes, it can be like hot choclate. You can have it cold or warmed in the microwave. I like both :)

It's extra delicious with a few drops of peppermint extract. My kids all love it - even the 3 who have no problems with dairy.

Sorry about that, I forgot that there was no temp. on the recipe.

Where do you get flaked rice? The only thing I can think of is baby cereal...

Flaked rice is like flaked rice. Being flaked it cooks quicker

I don't know if you can get it in the US, but we can get it over here if you know where to look. Most supermarkets have it in their flour section.

Here's a great comfort food recipe. It's adapted from a recipe posted on allrecipes.com called Potato Soup IV by Tonya Jacobs.


* 2 tablespoons margarine

* 1/4 thinly sliced baby carrots

* 1/2 cup chopped onion

* 7 cups peeled and diced potatoes

* 1 Tbsp extra finely chopped garlic

* 4 cups chicken broth (I used Herb-ox boullion w/ water)

* 4 cups milk

* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

* 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

* 1 tablespoon cornstarch

* 1/4 cup water

* 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

* 1 12.5 oz can cooked chicken (drained)


1. In large saucepan, heat butter or margarine over medium heat. Add celery and onions; cook and stir until tender.

2. Add potatoes and broth, and simmer until tender.

3. Stir in milk, and season with salt and pepper. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup water, and slowly stir into soup. Bring to a boil for 1 minute, and then turn heat to medium-low. Stir in 2 cups cheese and drained chicken, and continue stirring until it melts. Serve.

Monthly, <_< , I require several kinkinik chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I am not ok until I have two with a cup of coffee that has three scoops of sugar. It cures my worst moods at that time of the month!
