You cannot go to any gathering around here without someone bringing the sweet rice. This recipe is a sweet treat, with a rich & creamy texture. I've also attached a photo of my little one enjoying a taste of her momma's sweet rice :)

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
