I am new to rice pudding. I remember my Mom and Dad loving it. They ordered it at one of their favorite diner a lot. Last year I was at a local diner with my daughter, and she asked me if I’d like to share rice pudding with her. I had always been a tapioca pudding fan up to that point. The pudding came to us in a beautiful glass dish topped with a good sprinkle of cinnamon and a dollop of freshly whipped cream. It was so creamy and the cinnamon seemed to have become one with the layer of pudding it was clinging to. The whipped cream added lightness to the rice which was so tender. I was immediately pleased with this pudding and ate more than my share.  My daughter had discovered rice pudding long before. She was laughing at how much I enjoyed it. I will always love tapioca. But now I have two loves! This recipe was given to me by my good friend Joyce. I was telling her about my new love of rice pudding. A friend of hers had given her this recipe. It was easy to prepare, creamy and delicious, a recipe anyone would love.
