Two Peas and Their Pod

Zucchini, Tomato, and Eggplant Risotto

veggie risotto

I enjoy a good risotto. Arborio rice brings such a great richness to the table. I don’t even mind all of the stirring involved. I think of it as a bonus arm workout for the day! We tried a new version of risotto. This...

A co-worker gave me a bag of plums, fresh from the tree! They are so juicy and sweet. I used some of them to make Plum Coffee Cake Muffins. The muffins look plain, but when you take a bite there is a sweet surprise...
