Greek Inspired Tapioca Pudding

20181013_165739

There is something so wonderful about pudding. It doesn’t matter the type, pudding is comforting. It is also a very simple dessert to master, and you can whip it up in no time; meaning you can always have something sweet and simple to have, when you can’t find the energy or resources to make anything else.

The texture of pudding is usually rich and creamy, but I like to add fruit or nuts to make it come alive. For this recipe, I paired it with pomegranate. The crisp burst of sweet and sour, paired with the creaminess of the pudding, complement each other well. Paired with cinnamon, and you truly have a Greek-inspired treat.

I can’t imagine the Holidays without shortbread. If someone isn’t making them, I will buy them, many times. I don’t care if they are the cheap kind or the delicious Mary Macleod’s, shortbread is so simple to make that I have yet to eat one, dense or thin, that didn’t taste good.

After reading up on the history of shortbread, I decided to make some. I figured I couldn’t fail too hard at making a cookie with 3 ingredients. With a bit of research I decided that I would use 4 ingredients, which really doesn’t change much.  Well to some it is a big deal. When you read extensively on shortbread, you begin to notice the fight between what are considered “traditional” and “non -traditional” shortbread recipes. Continue reading
