    I've made this recipe many times and always get compliments on it. I sometimes add a bit of vanilla too.  -  07 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My mom use to make this but she never added vanilla. if you add lemon peels, it takes away the strong taste of the egg.  -  05 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If you like rice pudding, this is the stuff you want! As you can see in my photo, I served it to company with strawberry and kiwi slices, garnished with mint. Delicious!  -  22 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
