With October comes cooler temperatures, and that urge to start grabbing your winter comfort things, so they are ready when it gets really cold.
This is one of my winter comfort things. It's not really rice pudding, since it doesn't have the consistency, and doesn't contain eggs. It's a dessert, since it is sweet, but it's just one of those homey comfort things I love.

Stove top Sweet Coconut Rice
1 cup uncooked white rice, rinsed in cool water
1 1/4 cup water

1 can coconut milk (approx. 14 oz)
1/3 c. brown sugar
½ t. vanilla
In a large saucepan, bring water, rice, and salt to boil. Reduce heat to medium heat, stirring every few minutes. After 10 minutes, add coconut milk and brown sugar. Cook until rice is tender, 15-20 more minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla. Serve warm.
