Feeding a crowd is a feat—but it doesn’t have to be complicated. I have to remind myself of this regularly when opening our home to appetizer gatherings or brunch!
As I recently hinted in a cozy Valentine’s Night In post, the secret to a memorable holiday for two is not necessarily the frills, but rather the quality time. Our love languages (what’s yours?!) might dictate how we spend a holiday such as Valentine’s or an anniversary — for some, it’s gifts; for me, it’s quality time. After just 25 minutes of cook time for this main course, you’ll have extra time to savor every swirl.
I know I’m very late to the Instant Pot train. But I have arrived, and my mind is blown. When it comes to a batch of risotto, there is something quite charming about standing over the stove, stirring, and stirring, and stirring again… But when you arrive home from a full 8-5 stretch, your arms are already sore from early morning boot camp that day, and you are very, very hungry, the Instant Pot version of risotto is not just satisfying — it is miraculous.
