I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Avocado Risotto

This recipe takes a little time and patience, but is so worth the effort. If you have arborio rice use that, but I had plain white rice on hand and it worked well too.

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup rice
3 cups hot chicken broth
1/2 - 1 avocado
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp flax
salt and pepper
1/4 cup shredded parmesan, romano, asiago mix
2 pinches each of parsley and saffron

Heat oil and cook onion and garlic on low until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook 2 minutes.

Gradually add broth, 1/2 cup at a time, only adding more when the last addition has been absorbed. This is where the patience comes in handy.

Mash the avocado with lime juice and when all the broth has been absorbed, add to the rice along with the flax, salt, pepper, cheese, parsley and saffron.

Goes great with Classic Osso Buco
