School. Sports. Lessons. Work. Family Time. My day is full to the point that it can be overwhelming to think about coming up with a quick meal or dessert for the family to eat. At times like these, especially now that Fall weather is here, I start wanting comfort food, like Apple Walnut Rice Pudding. However, I need that comfort quick! Thank goodness for products like Success® Rice!
I can have a bowl of warm, creamy Apple and Walnut Rice Pudding in my belly in about 40 minutes using Success® White Rice. It’s the ORIGINAL no measure, no mess boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time and is ready in 10 minutes. And it can sit for up to 30 minutes in hot water with the heat off before being served, making it foolproof if one of my kids snags my attention while I am cooking! It’s available in 14 and 32 oz packages to accommodate household sizes of any size. The convenient bags can be used one or all at a time. And it’s gluten free!
I just cannot get enough of Autumn. I adore apples and want them in everything. It wasn’t much of a stretch to add them to rice pudding. Wowzer! They sure jazzed up the taste!! Speaking of Fall foods, Success® Rice is one of the brands participating in a sweepstakes from O, The Oprah magazine!

Pinterest board for a chance to win a variety of culinary-themed prizes.The whole family loved this rice pudding. There was a little left over from dessert, so my daughter and I polished it off for breakfast the next day. I think Apple and Walnut Rice Pudding would make a great breakfast every day, but the hungry hordes in my house would never let me keep it around longer than 24 hours.
