Happy Day

Yesterday was a happy day, getting to meet Mitali Perkins - author and readergirlz talent scout. I've gotten to know her a little through her blog, readergirlz, and Secret Keeper, and it was even better to get to meet her in person with the readergirlz troupe!

Alas, I didn't take any pics, though lots of other people did and they'll probably be popping up on Facebook soon... Here's one from Lorie Ann:

Lots of people asked about the Indian pudding I made, so here is the recipe:


1 Tb Quick Cream of Wheat (or Rice, if you're gluten-free)
2 quarts half and half
1.5 cups sugar

Mix together in a large pot, slow cook until thick. Add:

pinch saffron
1/2 tsp cardamom

Continue to simmer until very thick (~ 1-2 hours) - careful not to cook too hot, or it will caramelize. Pour into lidded container and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Refridgerate overnight. Enjoy!


  1. This might have to be my inauguration-day dessert! Delicious!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the recipe!!!
