risotto, my love

One of my favorite comfort foods is risotto.  On New Year's Eve, I went to Wildwood with some girlfriends and I ordered Risotto with mascarpone, grapefruit and crab. It was delish! I love it with mushrooms too. If you like to cook risotto, Sweet Paul has what looks like a yummy recipe here. What's your favorite comfort food this time of year?

  1. Yum! The menu at Wildwood sounds delicious although I have to say I’m a touch dubious about grapefruit in a risotto. I make a delicious (if I say so myself!) one with butternut squash, spinach and roasted garlic.

  3. In heaven I’ll be served risotto every evening!

    My other favorite comfort foods this time of year are:

    a) Carmelized onions atop sautéed spinach, white beans and freshly ground pepper. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and is so very warming.

    b) 1950s style vegetable casseroles

    c) Mashed potatoes, always and forever! Sometimes with butter, sometimes with leeks, sometimes twice-baked. In any form, they never fail me.
