pinterest | to cook

To cook, again and again. The first time I made this Risotto, I adored the simplicity of the recipe and loved the taste! What's not to love when it's easy to make, has minimal preparation and clean up AND tastes like you slaved over the stove top for 25 minutes stirring and stirring and stirring.

The project planned for today has been postponed so that I could share with you our yummy dinner from last night. Tilapia grilled by Gordon on the grill. Risotta a la Monika, courtesy of Pinterest, and broccoli, just because we like it...Steam Fresh florets if you must know. Plus some freshly brewed iced tea, Southern style, and rolls. I could fib to you and tell you we had a delicious dessert as well, but we didn't. I had wanted to make one of the Pumpkin Bread recipes shared on the I Love It All Facebook page, but with Victoria still not feeling well, we all took it easy and watched a movie together this afternoon. 

I hope you might try this recipe...serious yumminess, I promise. The most time consuming part of it all is grating the Parmesan cheese and that takes all of 3 minutes. Get to cooking, you'll be so glad you did.


  1. How fun Monika, I reckon even I could make this without burning it! Thanks so much for sharing, I am going to give it a try when I can get hold of some Parmesan cheese.

    Hope your daughter gets better soon!

  2. This risotto looks divine. I would have eaten it right off the screen had my nose not gotten smashed...

  3. You really should try it,'s simply divine and so simple, too! I don't think anyone would know that you cooked it in the oven. Let me know what you think.
