Rice Pudding

Don't you just love watching cooking shows? They have all those nifty products and gadgets. Every time I see something new, I wonder if that is the answer to the perfect dish. Sometimes it is. I've always wanted a quality set of copper cookware. It looks so shiny and pretty in all those TV kitchens. You just know that the perfect sauce would start with one of those pots.
.
My Mother had a trio of copper molds that hung on her kitchen wall for years. I always loved the little designs and marveled at the salads she would make in them. When I found ruffoni copper, I was instantly reminded of those lovely molds. In addition to copper cookware, ruffoni has a beautiful line of molds, including hearts. Just right for Valentine's Day!

Speaking of Valentine's Day, here's a quick recipe you might like to try.

Rice pudding is SO good, especially with a few chopped maraschino cherries mixed in.
