So today I open my computer... all ready to post about my recent yummy creation... when BAM... CAMERA MELTDOWN!!!
Every time I turn it on it makes some weird (and devistating) noise and the lense wont open or close. I'm pretty sure its broken...
Well I suppose I can tell you all about what I was so excited for...and I promise once my camera gets going again I"ll SHOW you all!!!
As I was cruising one of my favorite blogs.... which one you ask?? well Katie's of course.. from Chocolate Covered Vegan. In an earlier post, she spoke about how she woke up one morning and had the urg to make Rice Pudding...(but didn't have the right ingredients... SORRY KATIE!)
and I though to myself... OH MY GOD... I HAVE THE URG TO MAKE RICE PUDDING!
(this revelation reminded me of the one from the movie "Clueless"...
OH my GOD... IM IN LOVE WITH JOSH! "... ok sorry for the blast from the past)
Well I followed my urg and make it I did!
I cruised the internet until I was able to find a recipe that I liked... of COURSE I tweaked it... why wouldnt I!?
WELL>>> HERE IT IS!
Apricot Rice Pudding
2 Cups of water
1 Cup Short Grain Brown Rice
3 Cups of Rice milk (Or your choice of milk replacement)
1/2 teaspoon Nut meg
1/2 (or more) teaspoon of Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1/8 cup Agave Nectar
2 Tbs ground flax seed (not nec. but why not throw in the added nutrients!)
1/4 cup of chopped apricots
Bring water to a boil... once hot enough add the rice and let simmer until water is soaked up (about 30 min)
add Rice Milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, agave nectar, flax, and continue to simmer on low/medium...stir occasionally... until most of the milk is absorbed ( and
has the rice pudding consistency)..probably for about 20-25 minutes
Once you have your favorite consistency of rice pudding, turn oven off and stir in apricots.
Scoop mixture into a container and put in the fridge for a couple of hours or over night... and then be prepared to enjoy a fabulous SIN FREE Desert!!!
Ok so... I'm watching my cousins tonight... and I have a sore throat...(sucks) and I wanted nothing but ICE CREAM!!! I haven't had any ice cream since I went vegan. So many contain soy, and the Rice Dream version is so loaded with calories I just didn't think it was worth it.
Luckily there is a whole foods down the block (they live in manhattan) So me and my Cuz Rick went and bought this...
Its called "Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Ice Cream" I got it in Chocolate. Its made with Coconut milk so its dairy free (100% Vegan)...and sweetened with Agave Nectar... CAN YOU GET ANY BETTER?!?!?! Not only was it rich and creamy, but there is half the fat (150 calories in 1/2 cup... not terrible) and tasted exactly like regular ice cream!!! I recommend it to anyone... soy allergy or not... it was amazinggg!
OK so Question.. has anyone ever been to Costa Rica??? Anthony and I are planning a vacation and are seriously considering Costa Rica.... ANY SUGGESTIONS!??? (even if its not Costa Rica... any suggestions on somewhere fun (and decently priced) to go)
****we want to do things other than sitting on a beach! aka... zip lining, white water rafting, snorkeling, anything RAIN FOREST!... we both want to do fun and exciting things..***
