Rice Pudding
As a Latino I've eaten my share of Rice Pudding. This one was pretty good. However it was too much milk. It depends on how thick you want your pudding to be. Traditional Latin Rice Pudding is pretty thick and firm so I used 1 1/2 Quarts of milk (which includes the 1 cup to mix with the eggs and sugar). I also added 2 teaspoons of cornstarch to the sugar. Also, for me, the best rice to use is short grain rice or pearl rice. The best results come after setting up in the refrigerator overnight. As an added note I've made this with Fat Free Milk 2% and Splenda and it also came out wonderful. Just an idea.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
I've made these Peanut Butter Cookies a few times and they are always a hit with my family. I added peanut butter chips to the recipe and it was still awesome

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake
Ok, this turned out really awesome!!!! Only two changes. I used 1/2c of Baily's instead of the recommended 1/4c. And since I was using a 10" spring form pan, I baked for only 50 minutes instead of an hour. It turned out moist and rich and it was the rave of the luncheon at work. Eat Your heart out Paula Deen!!!! hehe
