or Who knew kuglehopf could shine in comparison?
or Free the Arborio!
This is twenty-four (24!) hours later. appetizing?
Is November over yet? I was a little apprehensive about the list of recipes this month (because I had never eaten any of these items before) but this is ridiculous. I am pretty sure I mangled the measuring for the rugelach dough. I will give that one another attempt. The kugelhopf was made correctly but received unenthusiastically. The rice pudding…liquid. I have made a lot of pumpkin pie (but not with pecans – ick). If it goes horribly awry, I give up.
I even made the pudding after reading Dorie’s post about the error in the recipe. I cooked this sucker for an hour on the stove over low heat. It thickened but apparently not enough. I guess I was thrown by the disclaimer in the recipe that it would still be thin until cooled. Well, guess what? Eighteen hours later and we are looking at rice milk and not rice pudding. What the #$*?
Since mine clearly did not thicken into luscious pudding and I have never had the…um…pleasure (insert eye roll here) of rice pudding previously, I really need someone to explain why I would want to make rice pudding. Ever. I am not against spending time in the kitchen, although it may seem like it from the last two posts. I make cakes, cookies, brownies, granola, bread, etc. from scratch. Thanks to TWD, I even learned to make pudding from scratch. And it was heavenly. And it did not require me to quit my job or abandon my parental duties. If you joined TWD after this recipe, run – do not walk – to your food processor and bang this one out. Worth every minute.
No contest, right?
If rice pudding is the nirvana of all desserts and perfectly deserving of an hour plus near the stove top, by all means let me know. Until then, I will be enjoying regular pudding and luxuriating in all of my newfound free time. (ha).
