Collant, Caoutchouteux, Malpropre, Gluant

Rich Risotto Rice Pudding
Caramel Corn, Cheesecake Lollipops, Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Quicky Sticky Biscuits!

Collant, Caoutchouteux, Malpropre, Gluant.....translation: Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey...My new favourite cookbook by Jill O'Connor. If I didn't know any better, I would think this book had been written with me in mind!

If you are someone with a serious sweet tooth, and appreciate the family stories that lie behind recipes, then this is the cookbook for you. It is filled with delicious desserts and gorgeous photographs. And, since my birthday is just around the corner, I figured I would treat myself and splurge a little!

So far, as difficult as it has been to narrow the recipes down to my favourites, the Rich Risotto Rice Pudding is on my list to make this weekend! This dessert represents true comfort food for me. With the richness from the arborio rice and the slight sweetness from the fresh vanilla bean, cinnamon and nutmeg, this dessert is divine!

And, if it's at all possible, I think it might be even better with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce!
