  Downtown's Lazy Ox Canteen isn't a fancy place. In fact, for the first couple of months it was open, there wasn't even a sign out front. But chef Josef Centeno really knows how to cook soul-satisfying food. Nothing exemplifies that better than his rice pudding. It's a thoroughly grown-up take on the nursery treat. Times restaurant critic S. Irene Virbila raved: "It's dreamy, with sides of whipped cream and a deep caramel sauce, and definitely big enough to share. " That it is. The recipe is a bit involved ?

My longtime editor, Judith Jones, is a wonderful home cook and a true New Englander. As such, she's very thrifty and very creative at using leftovers. Jones and her husband, Evan (who was also a fine home cook), wrote the "L.L. Bean Book of New England Cookery." Among its many recipes is creamed rice with maple syrup, or what old-timers call Vermont Rice Pudding. This is a simple and surprisingly good dessert.

I've only had rice pudding in college dining halls 10-plus years ago and was never a fan. But last night I had the rice pudding at Lazy Ox Canteen; I think my knees went weak. Could you help me get this recipe? I have been thinking about it for 12 hours straight. Elizabeth Kim Los Angeles I'm not a big dessert person, but I recently tasted a heavenly dessert at a fairly new restaurant in L.A. called Lazy Ox Canteen. It was their only dessert at lunch, and it was some type of a rice pudding.

Folks were all keyed up from last Monday's Guest Workout with Cardinal Roger M. Mahony. It wasn't the exercise part, not even the spiritual talk. It was the rice pudding. The cardinal mentioned that one of his favorite rice pudding recipes came from New York City's Waldorf Astoria. So, the hotel's chef has kindly shared the recipe.

DEAR SOS: What is the recipe for the glorious rice pudding at Old World Restaurant in Westwood? It seems like a custard as much as a pudding. I've loved it since my freshman year at UCLA in 1983. --BRAD DEAR BRAD: You're in luck. Old World Restaurant shared its recipe with you--and us.

Most people like it with a lot of raisins in it, if they can face it to begin with. It is perhaps meant for the nursery . . . but that is where we should all return now and then, to simplify ourselves. --M.F.K. Fisher on rice pudding It's hard to believe our lives would be simpler if we only ate more rice pudding, but if it tastes good, what's the harm? Rice pudding may not be man's greatest gastronomic accomplishment, but it is the ultimate comfort food.

The joyous festival of Purim, which begins Saturday night, commemorates the deliverance of the Jews of ancient Persia from danger. So why not celebrate with a menu that honors that? Persian cooking has much in common with other Middle Eastern cuisines, but its flavor combinations are unique, with gentle spicing, lavish use of fresh herbs and desserts that are accented with cardamom, saffron and rosewater. For a festive Purim dinner in the Persian style, serve an eggplant and tomato appetizer with fresh flatbread, a noodle and spinach soup with beans and three kinds of herbs, and a creamy almond rice pudding.

The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . Eat anything you want and lose weight? Although it sounds like something you might hear on a cheesy infomercial at 3 a.m., it is possible. But, like anything, it's all about the moderation. My friend John e-mailed me last week attesting to his weight loss of 24 lbs. so far this year with a weekly pig-fest included. He writes: "The key to my success doesn't lie in the austere diet or draconian exercise regimen.

Part-grocery, part-café, Parthenon sells classics such as keftedes (meatballs), spanakopita (spinach and cheese in phyllo dough)

February 23, 1989 | DIANA SHAW, Shaw is free-lance writer in Los Angeles.
The windows were what sold me on my tiny cabin in the hills, and if cold winds keep coming, those windows just might drive me out. It's gotten to where I'm wondering if trading in some major household appliances would cover the bill for the heat that's seeping away through the seams of my skylights and glass doors. Meanwhile, I'm preparing hearty dishes that require hovering over a hot stove, such as this ricotta-rice concoction with fresh applesauce.

Dear SOS: My trips to Santa Barbara are not complete unless I have the rice pudding with bananas and pistachios from Pierre Lafond. I would love the recipe. Hope you can help. Thanks. Irene P. Ayala Los Angeles Dear Irene: Because it's served chilled, this is one variation rice pudding fans can keep squirreled away in the fridge, ready to dish up whenever the craving strikes. Scented with cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg and flavored with chopped pistachios and diced fresh bananas, it's a fun take on a classic dish.

Total time: 40 minutes, plus soaking and chilling times Servings: 6 Note: Adapted from "Cardamom and Lime: Recipes from the Arabian Gulf," by Sarah al-Hamad. She writes, "Milky desserts are very popular in the Middle East, and this one is a particular favorite -- the rice thickens to give it texture. There are many ways of making muhalbiya: with rice, with rice flour, or with corn flour, the way it is made in Lebanon and Syria. Top with chopped pistachios to add some color and crunch.
