What’s better than risotto? Bacon risotto!
In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon slices in olive oil until crispy. Drain bacon onto paper towels. Melt butter in the hot pot and saute onions, mushrooms and garlic until onions start to soften, 5 minutes. Stir in rice and cook another 2 minutes. Pour in 1 cup of chicken stock, salt, pepper, bay leaf, thyme and stir. Continue stirring until rice has absorbed most of the liquid. Continue adding in stock 1 cup at a time until all 3 cups of stock have been cooked into the rice. Stir in cream, cheese and peas. Cook another 2 minutes. Taste, adjust seasonings, stir in bacon pieces and serve.
Here’s an easy recipe for Mexican Rice (aka Spanish Rice). It’s cooked right in a rice cooker, which happens to be my new favorite kitchen toy. But hey, don’t worry if you don’t have a slow cooker. I’ll share my easy stove top directions too.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
