Pineapple Rice Pudding
Why I Love This Recipe
This is what I consider a comfort food dessert. It has all the ingredients in it that my family loves. I hope you enjoy it also.
Note: You may use "evaporated skim milk" in place of regular evaporated milk and also "skim milk" in place of Regular whole milk. This will make it figure friendly.
