Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy belated Father’s Day to all you dads out there.  This post is a tribute to my dad.  One week while I was in the middle of my 365 days of slow cooking last year I went home to my parent’s house and stayed for a week.  During that week I made several things that I might not make for my tastebuds but because my dad was there I decided to branch out a bit.  My dad loves what I think are mediocre or even gross desserts like rice pudding and tapioca pudding.  I made him a rice pudding that even I could choke down and say, “hey that wasn’t half bad!”  He said he would give this recipe 5 stars.  I would probably give it 3 at the most.  But like I said I am not a rice pudding fan.  I believe desserts are only desserts if they have chocolate in them.

Serves 6
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 cup hot cooked rice
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Pour mixture into greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish (see picture above). Cover with foil. Place rack in bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Pour in one cup of water. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours. Remove dish from slow cooker. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
