I’ve always been a little hesitant when it comes to rice pudding. Rice goes with raw fish and orange chicken… and you’re telling me I can eat it for dessert?

After finally popping my rice pudding cherry, I learned that yes, I can eat rice for dessert. And I would also eat it for every damn meal (this recipe has bananas, so that covers breakfast at least).
