"This pudding is the queen of comfort foods!" relates field editor Dee Falk of Stromsburg, Nebraska. "It's creamy, spicy and smells incredible while baking. It's a great way to use up leftover rice, too."

"While I enjoyed this very much, it needed more rice to taste like a true rice pudding. Next time I make this, I will increase the rice to at least 4 cups. I also added raisins, dried cranberries, and slivered almonds to the mix."

"I made this and thought I followed the recipe exact. For some reason, it took over an hour to get done. The texture and flavor just were not that great."
