Risotto!!

Awesome! The 2010 March Daring Cooks challenge was hosted by Eleanor of MelbournefoodGeek and Jess of Jessthebaker. They chose to challenge Daring Cooks to make risotto. The various components of their challenge recipe are based on input from the Australian Masterchef cookbook and the cookbook Moorish by Greg Malouf.

Instead of the pumpkin, I decided to make mushroom. I usually serve this with either seared scallops or shrimp with sinful balsamic butter sauce. But, I had neither of those things, so I did chicken piccata instead. Fabulous! I go to use the last of my Vermintino for the risotto and it was delish!! Thanks Eleanor and Jess this was an awesome challenge! Now to find my cable so I can upload my pic from my camera. OK. Finally got that updated. Here's my yummy pic. This stuff was so good I could hardly stand it.

    Every challenge has it own blog-checking lines they are found near the start of the recipe. Look for they are in bold formatting usually.

  3. Ha! Thanks Audex. Darn, this is how I know for sure I'm a tech geek in my work life. I'd tried to make it a bit more complicated by parsing the dang blog checking lines and using specific words in the search field. I've updated.
    Thanks
