(Almost) Vegan Rice Pudding

Okay, so I didn't expect this to come out so delicious.  I've made a version using low-fat milk, but a co-worker of mine is vegan and recently had dental surgery so I thought this would be a good time to make another entry. It's (almost) vegan because I forgot some vegans don't eat honey.  You can substitute all the sugar / honey for agave nectar or maple sugar or whatever other sugar you want to use.

Stacey's (Almost) Vegan Rice Pudding Ingredients
1c coconut milk, organic
2c flax seed milk
2c water
1c short grain rice
2 tsp coconut oil, organic
1/4tsp salt
1/2 tsp cardamom
2 tsp vanilla
3 tbs granulated sugar, organic
3 tbs honey

I used this rice if you were curious.



Rinse the rice a couple times in a 4 qt stockpot.  Then pour in all the other ingredients.  Originally this recipe was for 1/2 cup of rice and had less liquids, but I ended up putting a whole cup of rice and had to re-adjust.  Here's what it looks like with too much rice, half the liquids.  Please indulge me - I just got a new camera and lens and so I went a little photo crazy.

Just water...


 Water and milks...


I let this simmer with the lid off-kilter for probably about 20 minutes before I realized there wasn't enough liquid and then added more.  I let it simmer for another 15 minutes after adding additional liquids (don't worry, the recipe I documented is the final one).

In a storage container to cool...


I really love rice pudding.  Just not enough to measure correctly the first time, evidently.

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

Vanilla Marshmallows

Marshmallows have a special place in my heart because my boyfriend and I made these together on our third date.  He's a chemist and I remember commenting on how precise he was with measuring everything.  Nothing sexier than a guy who can cook... and who wants to help make candy. :) Unfortunately, he's on a business trip this week, so I made a half batch by myself from my favorite book, Chocolates & Confections .   And in doing a search I see they have an At Home version !!! Wow.  If only they had this when I started trying to make candy in 2008.  Oh well, the harder path only makes you stronger... right? Anywho... Stacey's Half Batch Vanilla Marshmallow Ingredients : 0.8 oz gelatin (powdered) 4 oz water (for hydration) 12 oz sugar, organic 6 oz glucose syrup 2 oz local honey 2 oz invert sugar 3 oz water 2 tsp vanilla bean paste Parchment paper 9"x9" cake pan Canola oil, organic 1:1 ratio powdered sugar to cornstarch I've found tha

White Chocolate Love Bars

More hearts for my Valentine's Day assortment... Stacey's White Chocolate Love Bars Ingredients : 16 oz Chocolates El Rey White Chocolate Discos 64% Guittard Dark Chocolate couverture 1 oz bar mold I'm using a 16 cavity bar mold that has one ounce bars.  I think I got mine from Tomric.com ( candy bar mold ). First I tempered some dark chocolate for the decorations. I use the seeding method and a microwave to temper my chocolate.  I put my couverture in a pyrex bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with my favorite rubber spatula (the 1 piece ones are the best), until it's about 100F, using my trusty  temperature gun .  Then I add my seeding chocolate and stir until it reaches 90F, removing the seed chocolate afterward. The other thing about tempering chocolate is that you can't really make only one or two ounces - you need to do at least 4-5 ounces or it won't come out right.  So, I made these while I was making something else.  But, yo
