Normally when I wanted rice pudding, I would just go and buy it. That has always been the easy way out.

Up until now, I really didn’t realize how easy it is to make this sweet and creamy treat at home. Rice pudding is the perfect snack. It is gluten free, wheat free, and I made this one dairy free as well.

All you need is cooked rice and a few simple ingredients and you can have that creamy flavor anytime.

Does your family set a special day each week to sit down and enjoy dinner?

I try to do this during the week, but when one person is coming, another is going. One kid is back from volleyball practice or a game, the other is rushing off to fencing. I miss those quality dinners where we all sit down and talk about our day.

Well, we are taking back our family dinner and joining in with the Sunday Supper Movement. Each and every Sunday, our family will sit and enjoy a leisurely meal together. After dinner, we are going to try for a board game, or some other activity we can do together.

Us time.

Quality time.

And the much needed time to reconnect with each other.

And we are having this incredible warm rice pudding for dessert :-).

This post is my first article for an amazing group of food bloggers who are dedicated to bringing back the family dinner. Sundays are dedicated to home cooked, family dinners. Real quality time with your family. Our school weeks are so busy, kids going to sports, activities, games, etc. It is so hard to sit down as a family at dinnertime. You are going to notice that some recipes in the list below are not gluten free. Many recipes are, many of the recipes can be easily converted to gluten free. The point of this post and The Sunday Supper Movement is more about the family time. You can use any favorite recipe of yours, just take some time each Sunday and enjoy how special family time can be over a meal πŸ™‚
