I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus! This is a marvelous recipe for Risotto – Ham & Parmesan Risotto Instant Pot or Stove Top Version.
Arancini – Stuffed, Breaded and Fried Risotto Balls
If I’m thinking ahead, when I make any Risotto, like my Roasted Red Pepper & Shrimp Risotto or my Asparagus Risotto, I’ll make a little extra just to make these wonderful little gems called Arancini.

Reposted for 2016: I hope you’ve had a great Thanksgiving and if you’re like me, you’re looking at the last of the leftovers thinking you really need to do something about them, now!

Each one better than the original turkey, if you ask me! 🙂

Momofukus Bo Ssam
What happens when a lentil/yogurt/kale and green smoothie person stays on to help out her solidly Midwestern parents? Things like this, I’m afraid! This is one gorgeous pork roast from Chef David Chang of Momofuku. Momofukus Bo Ssam is crazy good. Served with rice, two simple sauces, and lettuce for wrapping, along with a few, simple accompaniments, this is absolutely one insane dinner.
