From the Kitchen

Arroz Con Leche

“This is a great recipe I got from my adopted family in Spain!”


  • Cinnamon stick
  • Orange peel
  • Lemon peel
  • 1 cup of rice
  • Milk
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • Powdered cinnamon


In a saucepan, boil half of a cup of water, then add a cinnamon stick, orange peel and lemon peel. After about 5 minutes add 1 cup of rice.

After about 10 minutes of the rice boiling, turn the heat down and start adding milk. Take care to stir continuously so that the milk doesn’t burn. Keep adding milk until the rice is fully cooked and very soft.

Remove from heat and add 2 Tablespoons of sugar, if desired. Serve in individual bowls and top with a light sprinkling of powdered cinnamon on top.
