Rice Pudding

After yesterday's dark day on the internet, here's a sweet and tasty recipe for you, to wash that nasty taste internet censorship taste out of your mouth.

I was absolutely shocked and more than a little amused when I discovered you can buy rice pudding in the store...and what people actually pay for it!  O. M. G!  Are you kidding?  It is so easy to make (it was actually the first dessert I ever learned to make) and cheap it boggles my mind that someone would buy it at the store premade!

Rice Pudding

2/3 cup uncooked rice
1 1/3 cup water
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
ground cinnamon to taste

Combine rice and water in a covered saucepan.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes.  Preheat oven to 325.  Remove rice from heat and let stand, covered, 10 minutes.  Stir together egg, rice, sugar, raisins, milk, vanilla, and salt in a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Bake uncovered 50 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Pudding is done when a knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean.  Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.  Serve warm or cold; refrigerate any unused portion.

  1. Great now I have a taste for rice pudding, ;-) gonna see if I can't take your recipe & make a few substitutions like brown for white & maple syrup for the sugar. Will hold the raisins, I know won't be the same but when ya got the sugar ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

  2. You are obviously an intelligent person - why don't you purse an education or j-o-b that makes you more marketable or do you prefer living off the earnings and charity of others? Blog about your J-O-B search and your education pursuits, and while that may be more boring to your 175 followers it would be WAAAAAY more interesting to me - an actual taxpayer.
    Don't get me wrong - been there, done that got the tee-shirt. Been on WIC and food stamps, but I did NOT waste my time bragging online about saving money at the grocery store when I really needed to be focused on raising children, and securing the income which allows me the internet access to blog this and care for my family. Get a J-O-B, you lazy-worthless-waste-of-space human being. You are a waste of space and money. Any one that cares that you have a great recipe for rice pudding is a fool. Get off assistance and then what you have to say might be relevant to the "real working world situation". Until which time, please keep your happy "home maker" BS to yourself. When I was out of work with 3 step children I made entire meals with dessert for less than .67 cent per serving I didn't waste my time blogging about it. I worked my backside off to get a J-O-B. Please have your tubes tied as your current children will be enough to drain the already overtaxed mental health system (thanks to your influence and your very apparent Axis II personality disorder) as you are currently draining the social support system without the any additions. Children from you would just ensure that others that truly needed assistance from federal and state source would not receive as you offspring would already be enjoying the benefit. We all would (and I mean human kind) appreciate it you stopped procreating! Thanks! - US Taxpayer

    1. You are a flipping idiot, lucifer. Go blow hot air somewhere else. If you don't like the blog, quit wasting your f'ing time reading and get a J-O-B and a L-I-F-E

    2. Yes, I used my REAL profile and my REAL name. Go away!

    3. Another clue you don't know me: I suffer from Axis I mental disorders, not Axis II.

    4. Oh Lucifer. So angry that you have to attack others to relieve the pressure? I feel compassion for you that your life was difficult, I truly understand; I was raised under severely financially stressed times in my own family, with a single mom. So I truly get it. Please, stop attacking people whose circumstances you don't fully understand. Being so snarky and mean does your struggle and survival no honor whatsoever. To belittle yourself by being so nasty is simply sad. And so you have my compassion.

    5. The wonderful thing about internet- you don't have to read a bit of it. Live and let live. I applaud anyone who doesn't fall for the consumerist BS of our society and stays home and raises well adjusted human beings, something you, dear ranter, have obviously lacked. WIC was designed exactly for people like her and she is using resources available to her. If you do not like it it- stay at home yourself and quit paying taxes because really, hate like yours for this issue really comes from a place of jealousy. If it does not come from a place of jealousy then you, dear ranter, need to get a life.

  3. Well as a taxpayer myself and a member of the human race... I must say that lucifer (appropriate name) does NOT speak for me!! I enjoy this blog :) keep up the good work, girl!

  4. Thank you for your comment and I'm sorry you're so miserable with your life that you feel the need to attack people you don't even know. If you did know me, you would know that I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, have medical conditions that leave me unable to work outside the home, do not plan on having more kids, spend a TON of time with my kids, and wasn't on any sort of assistance until after our last child was born and my husband was severely injured with an on-the-job injury that left him unable to work for nearly a year. As a matter of fact, I homeschool my kids, which means I "waste" lot less taxpayer dollars with our food assistance than you do if you send your kids to public school. Have you had yourself evaluated for mental conditions, because I see no other reason why you would feel such a need to attack me. Just click away from my blog and don't come back if you don't want to read what I have to say. Oh, and my "wasting time blogging" generates the income that PAYS for our internet, which my husband is also using to go to school online while he looks for a job in one of the states with the highest unemployment rate in the country.

  5. First,Lucifer,you're an idiot to assume that because a woman stays home cares for her family that she is uneducated, wasting time,money,and your tax dollars living on welfare,just hanging out waiting for that next welfare payment....
    You do not know her personally,otherwise you would not be typing this.

    SO,sit down,shut up,and go away...you're wasting my time making me read this crap you've posted on this wonderful,well written blog.

    Thrifty Mama...thanks for the recipe,I actually needed one for rice pudding. :)

  6. Dear Lucifer,
    Step away very slowly from the FOX news, you can do it...easy now...that's it keep going...now breath and run! Run and don't look back! Don't ever look back to FOX news again. I know it's scary but you will get through this. The change is hard going from that extreme to real life that isn't being lead by fear and insanity. But you will be fine with out FOX news. Try watching something more intellegent like Sponge Bob Square Pants. (sorry if any of you are huge FOX news fans but really try it, it's amazing the change it can make in your life) ;)

  8. Wow. Surely you just don't read blogs you don't like/don't interest you?

    I just got a bottle of milk out of the freezer for rice pudding as I sorted out my food cupboards and found 2 open packets of pudding rice and 2 open packets of flaked rice. Ahem.
    I'm going to try your recipe for a change. If I have extra eggs, I like this recipe based on an old English recipe. If you follow the recipe as is, it cooks to a custard on top of a layer of rice pudding. If you'd rather just have a creamy lemony rice pudding, cook the mixture until thickened after adding the eggs.

  9. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing more important in this world than raising and educating children yourself! They will become more responsible, secure, loving adults who will actually be a blessing to this world we live in. Not to say that if you need for some reason to have your children in school that they can't be, but it takes a lot of parent involvement. Not the kind of parents who are constantly at work or when at home constantly linked up to their computers or phones. Those children are blessed! And I am blessed to be able to read this blog :) Thanks Thrifty mom, keep up the good work!
