Re:Caramelized Onion Risotto

I've been making risotto for quite a while and knew a few changes I would want to make to the recipe. With the changes implemented, it was fantastic. As much as we love caramelized onions, I would never have thought to use them for risotto. We love mushrooms and I wanted an additional texture to my risotto so I sauted cremini and white button mushroom with a little butter, sea salt and cracked white pepper until they were very brown and free of water content. I also caramelized a bit more onion than recommended. During the risotto cooking time, I added about 1/2 the mushrooms and about 1/4 the caramelized onions to weave the flavor throughout the risotto. From experience, I know that risotto benefits from a little additional flavor during the cooking process, although I am sure the recipe was good as is.

Re:Gingery Sautéed Carrots

Very good recipe, although since my husband isn't a fan of ginger, I substituted orange zest. I know I would have enjoyed it with ginger and will try it one day when he is away on a fishing trip.

Re:Sautéed Sweet Potatoes with Orange-Mint Gremolata

This was delicious! A bright side dish with simple oven-roasted cabbage and roast pork.
