Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

Instant Pot + Stovetop instructions for a luscious Risotto made from leftovers. The Instant Pot makes the best no fuss, no stir Risotto in minutes.

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!

Green Pozole made with Turkey: I used leftover Thanksgiving Turkey & Broth but Chicken any good chicken stock will work, too!

Slow Cooker Barbacoa (Shredded Beef)

Slow Cooker Barbacoa - a family favorite. A handful of ingredients and the pay off! Makes enough to freeze some.

I’m always on the lookout for budget protein and when I saw this Rump roast at a great sales price I picked it up. Rump can be a tough, dry cut, sometimes a bit tasteless but cooked long and slow in a flavorful bath of aromatics and spices I knew it would be luscious.

Chef Momofuko's Bo Ssam - caramelized pork shoulder for wraps = insanely good!!

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. Crazy good. Served with rice, sauces and lettuce for wrapping, this is insane.

Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes - little silver dollar pancakes, crispy on the edges, light and fluffy inside - they're the best! Save them for the weekend or when you have a little time.

These little silver dollar pancakes will never be mistaken for your typical American flapjack. The outside is beautiful with just the right amount of crisp, the inside, light and airy. Ethereal. Insanely good, really. It’s almost an insult to call these pancakes!

Are you like me and think the best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers? (Have you read my 12 Days of Turkey?) Ok Ms. Frau – always remember, its not really food, dogs, then people. The people have to come first, then the dogs, then the leftovers.

Chicken Pot Pie like you WISH your Grandma made!

not to "dis" grandma, but this is outstanding!!

I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts! Today, as I made it again, I updated with new photos. That night, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?

Hot & Sour Soup

The Best Hot & Sour Soup - customize it how you like it!!

Since my very first taste, too many years ago to admit, I’ve been wild about Hot & Sour Soup. I think I order it whenever it’s available on a menu and it’s always exciting for me to sit at the table of a new restaurant, just waiting for their Hot & Sour Soup (which is always my first course) wondering what theirs will be like.
