Risotto alla Milanese with Herbs at Mommypotamus

I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!! I’m waving my hands, and bouncing in my chair and I may have even clapped for joy and squealed a little.  I’m not sure. I just know I’m excited. 

Today I’m sharing my Risotto alla Milanese with Herbs recipe over at Mommypotamus.

If you haven’t heard of her, Heather is the phenom behind Mommypotamus and she blogs about Real Food, parenting, vaccines, DIY and a whole host of other topics that I know you’ll find interesting. She even has tasty recipes. 

Heather reached out asking her fellow blogging community for some guest posts and I thought “Why not?!”  So I sent her this recipe with some photos and she loved it.  You’ll be seeing more of my recipes over on her blog as I’ve graciously agreed to become a regular content contributor to her site. I’ll be featuring grain-free dinner recipes about once every 3 weeks or so.  Please keep an eye out for me.  Oh, click HERE to be transported over to my recipe at Mommypotamus.  Feel free to show her some Real Food Girl Food Hippie love over on her Facebook page.  

I know you’ll love this risotto recipe. I’ve been dying to share this recipe for months, but each time I made it, the weather wouldn’t cooperate and I was unable to get any decent photos.  I need natural light, not pouring rain or snow or ice storms in order to take photos, so I just kept making small batches until finally, one day, the sun came out at the same time I happened to have some of this left over in the fridge and I hurried to get in a couple of great shots before that sun took another vacation from the sky.  I think you’ll agree once you see the photos that it was worth the wait.

Enough drooling- get yourselves over to Mommypotamus for this recipe!! See you back her on Monday for another great 30-Minute Monday Recipe!

    I’ve always wanted to try my hand at risotto, and this one looks great! It will also be my first experiment with saffron (it’s not a spicey-hot spice is it?). I’m glad I found your recipe via Mommypotamus 🙂

    Also, I like that you have the same pretty blue stoneware as the full set we got for our kitchen last year!

      Hi Krystal!

      First, saffron is not spicy. Some people say that saffron tastes slightly bitter to them while still lending a semi-sweet taste to the dishes to which it is added. For the most part, it is difficult to describe the flavor of saffron, since its complexity is experienced by everyone a little differently. I’ve had people say it tastes like the sea, or like honey and others have said it tastes like hay. LOL! Yikes! Err on the side of caution and use 2/3 of the amount this recipe calls for if you are unsure. 🙂 To me it tastes earthy.

      Second- I love those dishes! I found them at Cost Plus World Market for 50% off! I was in blog-prop heaven!! 🙂
