Comfort Food Tested Recipes & Videos

Rice Pudding Apple Crisp Bread Pudding
Homemade Rice Pudding takes milk, rice, and sugar and produces a wonderfully sweet and creamy dessert which so often evokes feelings of nostalgia that we think of it as a 'comfort' food. more An apple crisp is perfect when the weather turns cold. There is something so appealing about warm baked apples covered in cinnamon and sugar, made all the more tasty with a crisp and crunchy topping. more Bread Pudding starts with bite sized cubes of bread that are covered in a rich custard-like mixture of cream, eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract and ground spices. more
Chocolate Pudding Hot Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge
Homemade Chocolate Pudding is wonderfully rich and creamy with a deep chocolate flavor. more James Beard once said that, "A steaming cup of hot chocolate with buttered toast is surely one of the most heart warming, body-warming, and taste-satisfying combinations known to man." more The porridge of my youth started with 'rolled' oats which are oats that have been cleaned, toasted, hulled, steamed and then flattened into flakes and, depending on the thickness of the flakes, are labeled either 'old-fashioned' or 'quick-cooking' more

Although you may be able to buy these gorgeous buns, nothing compares to the smiles you are rewarded with when your family wakes up to the smell of these baking in the oven. more Its thick sweet batter is full of mashed bananas, cinnamon and toasted nuts and when you pull the bread from the oven the golden brown crust is delightfully crisp. more These batters produce a pancake that is light and fluffy with a soft crust and spongy texture. more

The light and refreshing desserts I enjoy in the heat of summer are very different from the warm and comforting desserts my body craves during the cold of winter. There are all sorts of recipes that are perfect 'winter' desserts, but puddings are particularly well suited for this time of year. Puddings contain the most basic of ingredients (milk, sugar, eggs, flour, fruit and/or spices) and their simple flavors satisfy our need for nostalgic foods. Plus, who wants to drive around town on a dark night trying to find some exotic ingredient for a complicated dessert when making a creamy smooth pudding will more than suffice.

The British sometimes use the word 'pudding' to mean any sweet dessert. But if we put that meaning aside, Webster's' Dictionary defines 'pudding' as a thick, soft dessert, typically containing flour or some other thickener (cornstarch, rice, tapioca), milk, eggs, a flavoring, and sweetener. Sweet puddings range from milk based to custard based and can be steamed, cooked on the stove (sometimes in a double boiler) or in the oven (usually in a water bath). The trick is to cook them slowly to prevent curdling so the end result is a soft and creamy dessert that can be eaten hot, if you can't wait, or cold, if you can.
