As far as I can remember I was 3 years old when I first tasted rice pudding. My mom is the one who always makes it. She is the one who knows how to make it out of all of us in my family. This is my favorite dessert. I love the flavor and smoothness of it. Especially with cinnamon on top. This tradition in my family started in 1866 with my great great grandmother. Since then it has been remade and celebrated with different members of my family (cousins,aunts,etc). Even when my family migrates to a new home, we still make this dish because it’s a part of our tradition.
