Chef Ludo's Rice Pudding featuring Stonyfield Petite Creme | http://mybakingheart.com #StonyfieldBlogger

Did you happen to catch the Oscars this past Sunday night? My favorite segment is the Red Carpet Arrivals. I love everything from the dresses to the shoes and even E!’s mani-cam. This year, I was tapped by Stonyfield to host a Oscar’s Watch Party, complete with fruity wines, Chef Ludo’s Rice Pudding and Awards Night Bingo! In between awards, we also caught a glimpse of Stonyfield’s new commercial, featuring Petite Creme. If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, you can view it here. Petite Creme is Greek’s creamy, French cousin. It’s silky, sweet and less tart… just perfect when you want a little something on the side every now and then.

Rice Pudding featuring Stonyfield Vive La Vanilla Petite Creme

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

    For the Rice Pudding:
  • 3-1/4 c heavy cream
  • 1-3/4 c milk
  • 3/4 c Carolina Gold rice or Arborio rice
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1-1/4 c or 2 (5.3 oz) containers of Stonyfield Vive La Vanilla Petite Crème
  • For the Confiture de Lait:
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • Sea salt

Instructions

For the Rice Pudding:

Put all the ingredients into a pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly making sure that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Cook for 45 minutes until the rice is tender and the mixture is very thick.

Transfer cooked rice to a shallow bowl, place that bowl inside another bowl of ice water and allow to chill completely. Once cool you may keep in refrigerator.

Transfer chilled rice to a large bowl. Slowly and gently, fold the Petit Crème into the rice, Blend until fully incorporated. Rice mixture should be light and creamy.

Serve with Confiture de Lait (recipe below), crème anglaise, fresh seasoned fruits and/or jams, allowing each guest to add in to their desire.

For the Confiture de Lait:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Boil some water. Pour the condensed milk into a glass pie pan or shallow baking dish. Stir in a few grains of sea salt and cover the pie pan with foil.

Place the pie pan in a roasting pan and add enough hot water to the pan so that the water rises halfway up the sides of the pie pan. Bake until the milk turns caramel-brown, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.

Make sure you have enough hot water in the roasting pan. Cool in the roasting pan. If the caramel is lumpy, whisk or strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Keep refrigerated. To serve, warm gently in a hot-water bath.

Strawberry Mint Margaritas

by Jessica on February 22, 2015

Strawberry Mint Margarita | http://mybakingheart.com #MargaritaDay

Happy National Margarita Day! It’s been an incredibly long week for me, so this day couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s also my birthday, so really, when you think about it, it’s like a nationwide celebration of me!

Driscoll’s & Casa Noble are celebrating this frozen concoction, as well, with their premium, fresh berries and well-balanced, smooth tequila. Casa Noble’s Crystal Tequila is packed with aromas and flavors of raw and buttery-sweet cooked agave, mango and a hint of pepper for a long finish. It’s crystal clear with brilliant hues of straw and silver and it’s spices are soft and elegant on the palate as they are complemented by a hint of citrus. The finish is clean, smooth and silky. Definitely a perfect tequila to complement Driscoll’s sweet, juicy strawberries.
