Shrimp and Zucchini Risotto

Debi and I very often look at each other and say: “We need to go out, We need to have a fantastic dinner and celebrate ourselves, our Love!”. Then we pause.We smile and we say: “Nahhh, what do we make for dinner?”

Then strip our clothes off and keep on celebrating.  Continue Reading…

Risotto with Sausage and Asparagus

We are at our third episode! Very happy about it.
Today we had lunch with a delicious Risotto with Sausage and Asparagus to celebrate the arrival of Fall, and we popped open two bottles of wine!
Risotto is a very nice, comforting and filling dish; you might like a light appetizer before you get to it, or a fresh salad right after…either or, it will be a great meal. We drank: Yellow Tail – Pinot Grigio Reserve 2003 and Chianti Ruffino – Il Ducale Reserve 2003. Continue Reading…
