• KETO Cauliflower Risotto

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE risotto.  I love how decadent, rich and full of flavor it is.  Traditional risotto (like this recipe) is not KETO friendly but when you use cauliflower rice it becomes VERY KETO friendly.   One skillet is all you need The beauty of risotto is that it is typically made all on one pan.  This makes it a perfect side dish for a busy weeknight or lazy weekend.   This time around I went with a simple parmesan risotto but if you wanted to add in some mushrooms or bacon you would cook them in the skillet before you add in the cauliflower rice.  This way the…

    Risotto, broccoli and cheese….can it get any better?   Well risotto is one of my favorite dishes.  Cheesy broccoli and rice is a favorite side…so why not combine the two?   Hello Instant Pot… It is no secret that I love my Instant Pot.  I have used it everything from my new favorite Oatmeal to this Salted Caramel Cheesecake and everything in between.   Anytime I can break out my handy kitchen tool I jump at the chance.    Not too long a go I was scrolling through Pinterest and came across a couple of risotto recipes all made in the instant pot.  Now I am not going to lie…

  • Pesto + Risotto = LOVE

    Risotto is one of my most favorite sides and ever since I made this Arugula Pesto last week I have been trying out new ways to use it in all sorts of dishes, and this one is my favorite so far. Oh how I love Risotto I am a big, big fan of risotto.  I love it simply done with a little parmesan or something more exotic such as with truffles, but this pesto version is pretty good too.  Not only is it delicious but it is also pretty easy to make, making this a perfect side for dinner tonight. Yes, you can make it tonight…a weeknight.  You will be surprised…
