risotto making

When Tyler was studying in Rome this past semester he taught himself how to make risotto and would make it for his apartment about once a week. He said that he kept experimenting with the recipe each time and the recipe just kept improving. I just love how he took this on because 1. Risotto is really difficult to make well; and 2. Ty doesn't really cook much. :)

Tyler wanted to make us a risotto dinner one evening before he went back to school. We picked a date that we would all be home and headed out to the grocery store to get the necessary ingredients on his shopping list.


He really knew what he was doing with the risotto and added some amazing flavors of garlic, tomatoes, basil, lemon juice, white wine and parmesan cheese. While we were shopping, he made sure to pick out the risotto and parmesan that were made in Italy. I loved this!


Risotto takes a long time to make and requires a lot of patience with continuous stirring.


I threw some lemon chicken in the oven to go along with the risotto.


The risotto turned out fabulous


and we were so into our dinner that I forgot to take any pictures, but Tyler had also invited one of his good friend's over to join us for the feast. So our table was full with people and food- exactly the way I love it!!

Seriously, I can't wait for Tyler to make this for us again!!
