Tapioca Pudding

I LOVE tapioca pudding, but gave it up when I could no longer eat dairy. Then early this year I found a great tapioca recipe by Alton Brown that I could modify AND the best part about it was that it was cooked in a slow cooker with practically NO effort on my part.

So here is my modified recipe.

Soak one-half cup tapioca pearls in two cups of water for several hours or overnight.
Drain any excess water.

Into a 2 quart slow cooker, add: tapioca, one and one-third cup hemp milk and a pinch of salt. Cook on LOW for 2 hours, stirring once or twice.  Serve warm or chilled.

Batik Diamonds Lap Quilt

I love this quilt! I made it from a kit for my friend Chris, who watched over my son for two summers of internships during college when he was far from home... AND even hosted my husband and I when we had to come fix the SUV that broke down on my son's drive out there the second summer.

I thought she deserved something special for her wonderful hospitality and kindness.

It is backed with Cuddle Bubble because I love the softness of it and I wanted it to be a really warm quilt.
