Cinnamon Apple Topping

This is a fun and easy cinnamon apple dessert topping that adds comfort to a variety of dishes.  The key to this recipe is the quality of the apples.  We’re recommending slightly under ripe granny smith apples to give this dish a slight crunchy texture to compliment the softer cake or ice cream that this could top.

Easy Rice Pudding

We don’t do a ton of dessert around here only because we are usually pretty full from dinner but when my husband mentioned that it had been awhile since he had rice pudding, I knew I had to make him some. I played around with a few recipes but this one is called Easy Rice Pudding for a reason, because it was super easy and it came out the best. It was the perfect level of creamy and sweet. All of the ingredients blended together perfectly and you will love it. If you are on the fence about trying to make it yourself, then this is the best starter recipe. You can adjust the seasoning as you practice more but I got no complaints from my end! Continue reading “Easy Rice Pudding”
