WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

SPICY RICE PUDDING

2 cups milk
1 cup basmati rice
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 cinnamon stick

Spray slow cooker or crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.

Place the milk, rice, raisins, sugar, butter, vanilla, and cardamom in the cooker; stir to mix together well.  Add the cinnamon stick; cover and cook 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 4 to 5 hours on low.  Pudding is done when the rice is very soft and the pudding is thick and creamy.

Remove cinnamon stick before serving.

Variation: This pudding is good served topped with sliced banana.
