I don’t ever recall my Mom making rice pudding as a kid. I do remember she used to buy a rice pudding that was to die for.
I have never been the one to go to a restaurant, have a dish and figure out how to make it at home. I always thought, why would you make it at home if you could go to the restaurant? They do it and do it right. It’s their recipe. They came up with it. That’s why you go. Because it’s good and you don’t have to make it at home. That was the old me.
I love brown butter and I use it a whole lot in my baking. It may be outdated or over used, yet so are my clothes and I don’t give a shit. I get gruff all the time for using brown butter and I thought to myself, “When have I ever cared for peoples opinion about me?”.
