Rice Pudding a la Lee Cumba

this is my friend Lee's fabulous rice pudding. she served it at all of our bridge parties and everyone loved it!!

  • 1 Gallon Whole milk
  • 2 cups of rice( do not use minute rice)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Bag of miniature marshmallows

Take 2 cups milk out of the galloon and add the 2 eggs, stir and set aside. In a large pot add rest of the milk, rice,sugar and vanilla. Cook on low untill the rice is soft( about 1 1/2 hours). when it starts to resemble a pudding texture, add 1/2 bag of marshmallows and slowly add the milk and egg mixture. Cook another 10-15 minutes - pour rest of marshmallows into your bowl and pour the pudding over top. DO NOT STIR. You may serve this hot or cold. It makes a large amount, but does not seem as good if you cut it in half. Can keep warm on low in a crockpot to serve. Great for pot lucks or large get-togethers!!

Awesome cinnamon rolls

This fabulous "easy" recipe came to my website, Bountiful Bakeshop, from my friend, Lee Cumba in Colorado City. Co. It is great and much faster for the holidays.

  • 1 package Rhodes cinnamon rolls (pkg. of 12)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream (I would suggest using vanilla beantoo, with extra deep vanilla flavor)
  • 1/2 cup butter (Use butter only)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put frozen rolls in pan with sides. Boil all of the other ingredients and pour over rolls. Let rise overnight. Lee says she puts rolls out as late as possible to prevent over-rising. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Happy Baking!
