What do you make when you are having a winter that won’t quit?  Here in the midwest we have having a losing battle with old man winter.  Just when you think the weather is going to let up, a new storm comes along and traps you inside for a week straight.  We are trying to make meals that will help with cabin fever.  Risotto is a process, and with patience and a few staples from the kitchen, you can make a wonderful, creamy meal.

One of the advantages of learning the risotto cooking process is that you can use the rice as a foundation to mix and add your favorite flavors.  We stayed traditional this round and made a classic sweet pea risotto.

    I’ve never tried to make Risotto, but will definitely consider it now. Great picture of the dish. I wish I could grab a fork and reach through the computer monitor to taste it!!

    Ok, this looks soooooo much more delicious than the risotto I “make” with the box mix.
    I’m trying it!
    *Thanks for the inspiration foodies!

    Looks pretty good to me! I’m like Kari, just want to grab a fork and take a bite. Pictures are great! Can’t wait for ol man winter to let us loose so we can plan some spring meals.
