A simple thing like Rice Pudding

Why a recipe for rice pudding? Well, a while ago, I have been at a pottery store opening with the kids, where my son and myself had the chance to craft our own ceramic bowl. Sure, not the most difficult way, but still handmade. After we left, we were told to come by a few days later to collect the baked bowls, but you know time goes by and a few days have been weeks now. As the week the birthday celebrations of my oldest son took place, I was reminded of the bowl and finally brought it home.

All for the kids

So, when the little man got his own self-made bowl, I was thinking of the ideal dish to fill it with and here we are now: rice pudding with shortbread snow it should be to give it a certain twist without loosing it’s heritage. The boys always ask for this at least once a week and usually we have it with liquid brown butter and cinnamon sugar on top…no questions asked, that it is one of their favorite dishes. The kids just love it…happy birthday Jasper.
