Author Notes

This is a melange of rice pudding recipes that I have collected over years of enjoying rice pudding. Soaking the raisins in rum is a direct "lift" from Ina Garten's recipe in one of her wonderful cookbooks. Separating the eggs is a trick from a recipe my Mom got from her former hair stylist. I add extra vanilla just because I'm a vanilla nut. This works fine with milk, half and half, cream. —Lizthechef
