Springtime Risotto!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
I am so happy to see spring this year! I think most everyone is! It is time to start having more fresh flavors in the kitchen. I am making a feast today of springtime flavors, Spring Chicken, this risotto, maybe some nice rolls, some nice vegetables. Don’t let risotto intimidate you, it is very easy, just a little time consuming, but well worth it! This will be a fantastic meal and I will be surround by my family! What is better than that a Sunday night dinner? Nothing!
