I just love making homemade sausage and these sliders with sauteed mushrooms are just over the top great!

I will give you even more suggestions for toppings at the end.

The sausage alone is amazing in flavor and you will never buy store-made sausage again.

Check out my mom's recipe!

I love a hearty dish of Italian Sausage Chili and this is one comforting dish to make for your family. This Italian Sausage Chili, is loaded with crushed meatballs and Italian sausage.

Sweet Potato Rice Pudding Recipe

Monday, March 2, 2015

 Sweet Potato Rice Pudding Recipe
2 cups water ( I use coconut water)
1 cup arborio rice
3 cups milk
3/4 cup freshly made mashed sweet potato around 1 lb. roast it or microwave until soft.
3/4 cup honey (see substitutions below)
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash salt


1/4 cup heavy cream whipped with a tablespoon sugar added
cinnamon sugar mixture (1 teaspoon cinnamon to 3 tablespoons sugar mixed together)
crushed graham crackers
cinnamon stick (optional)

Simmer rice and water for around 20 minutes until soft in a  medium sized saucepan that is suitable for the oven as well.
In a large bowl whisk together milk,  pumpkin, honey, vanilla, salt and spices. While the rice is still hot, add the pumpkin mixture, stirring until well blended.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Bake until the liquid is reduced about 1/3 and is foamy looking around 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. 
Taste this first, if you feel you would like this sweeter, add 1 tablespoon at a time of powdered sugar and stir this in. I do not prefer this overly sweet. 

Transfer to a bowl and refrigerator overnight.

Serve with whipped cream and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
