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
1 cup rice
2 cups hot water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 pint whipped cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup shredded coconut
In a double boiler, heat water to a boil. Gradually add rice. Continue to cook over medium heat, adding milk. When rice is done, drain excess liquid. Let cool and then put through a ricer. Add sugar, flavoring and fold in whipped cream. Turn into a mold and let stand overnight. Before serving, top with maple syrup or shaved chocolate.

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