Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital shares an easy way to make a fancy dessert. From making the simple preparation the night before, this dessert comes together quickly and tastefully.

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups short-grain rice, soaked overnight
1/2 cup water
1 piece cinnamon stick
2 tbsp. anise seed, crushed
1 12-oz. can evaporated milk
1 12-oz. can premade dulce de leche, plus more for serving (can be homemade)
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt

Steps

  1. Combine 2 1/4 cups of water and rice in saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
  2. While rice is cooking, combine 1/2 cup of water, cinnamon stick and anise seed in another saucepan over medium high-heat. Bring mixture to a low boil for 3 minutes, then remove saucepan from stove. Strain flavored water into bowl and set aside, discarding cinnamon stick and anise pieces.
  3. After rice has simmered for 20 minutes, over low heat, gradually stir evaporated milk and dulce de leche into rice. Mix in cinnamon and anise-flavored water, vanilla and salt. Continue to stir until mixture thickens, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. If pudding is too watery after 10 minutes, turn up heat to medium low and stir continuously. If pudding gets too tight before reaching desired consistency add little bit of water to loosen. When pudding reaches desired consistency, remove from heat and pour into individual dishes or large bowl, drizzle with dulce de leche sauce. Store in refrigerator until service.

From Mrs. Dash Foodservice.

There was a time when healthy food meant counting calories, omitting carbs, giving up sugar and going fat-free—in other words, it was all about deprivation.

But not anymore. Today’s definition of healthy means an overall focus on nutrition and wellness that doesn’t mean giving up enjoyment. It’s all about balance: good fats, healthy carbs, better sweeteners, wholesome ingredients and satisfying flavor enhancements. It means food that customers can feel good about, at the same time that they’re enjoying the dining experience.

Members of Congress and several advocacy groups gathered on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to highlight the potential loss of millions in state funding because of a Child Nutrition Reauthorization block grant introduced last month, and to call upon legislators to squash the bill.

The Improving Child Nutrition and Education Act of 2016 houses a statute that would provide three unannounced pilot states with block grant funding. Participating states would be exempt from federal nutrition regulations and would no longer qualify for the 6-cent reimbursement per lunch garnered by certified...

While the most obvious effect of the 2015 egg shortage was, well, a shortage of eggs, operators had another menu change to explain to diners: a price hike for the few eggs they were able to source.

“Our customers know what prices are like in the neighborhood and we don’t want them to feel gouged,” says Kevin Dorr, vice president of retail for Morrison Healthcare. “Unlike a restaurant, the people coming to our cafes are there several times per week, so they’re very aware of price changes.” Morrison had to increase its breakfast prices correspondingly, but Dorr says customers took...
