Old Fashioned Lemony Rice Pudding

Every Easter my mom would make rice pudding. If My mom did not make it to have for dessert, she made it for Easter breakfast….it was a great breakfast 🙂 It was not the rice pudding with raisins, cinnamon, etc. It was a lemony delight that was covered in meringue and baked until the meringue […]
