I was in the mood for some comfort food that would be friendly to a discombobulated stomach, so I tried Deborah Madison's recipes for rice pudding and dried fruits poached in wine. Both are slow-cooked with a vanilla bean, a cinnamon stick, and some lemon zest. So, needless to say, the house smelled wonderful. Delicious while still warm, and even better straight from the fridge for breakfast this morning.
