This is my mom's recipe for Rice Pudding. It's the best I've ever tasted and it gets rave reviews from everyone I serve it to. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon, if desired. For creamier pudding, use short or medium grain rice.

Key Lime Pie VII

This recipe uses condensed milk and sour cream. Fabulously easy. . . a summertime favorite! If you have time, a homemade graham cracker crust is better! Garnish with whipped cream and thin slices of lime if you like.

These easy 'pots de crèmes' are just sweet enough, just salty enough, and just drop-dead gorgeous enough to be my favorite dessert.

Chocolate Puddino

Perfect for Valentine's Day, this rich and delicious chocolate pudding is made with a classic Italian method that they call "budino." The pudding has a glorious texture--firm enough to stay on the spoon and hold its shape, but at the same time, soft, smooth, and silky. It's a perfect balance between intense chocolate flavor, with just the right amount of sweetness, topped with a soft whipped cream topping that elevates it to a whole new level of amazingness!

Real Strawberry Frosting

I wanted REAL strawberry frosting for my Real Strawberry Cupcakes and could not find an acceptable recipe. I wanted an intense strawberry taste without using an extract or gelatin. I came up with this recipe using a strawberry puree reduction that is truly the strawberry-est. If you love strawberries, you'll LOVE THIS!!!

Walnut Banana Bread Pudding

My mom has been making this recipe since I was little. This dessert is a big hit at every barbecue and potluck I bring this to! Sometimes I use pecans instead of walnuts. This is great with coconuts, raisins, and dried cranberries, too!
