Creamy rice custard drizzled with apricot sauce makes a comforting dessert or a refreshingly different breakfast. As a young mother, housewife and substitute teacher, I haven't been cooking all that long, but it's easy to impress people with this recipe since it's simple and delicious. -Elizabeth Montgomery, Allston, MA
