Happy New Year's Eve! Seafood Risotto with Prosecco

title

Ah, the last post of 2008. See you, 2008! There were a few really good things about this year, a few really annoying things, and a few things things that mostly stayed the same. What will 2009 bring? Well, hopefully more of really good things! Already, I am looking forward to Ashland/California in May and Montana in August. But most definitely, 2009 will bring more risotto!

This was influenced by a risotto recipe in the cookbook, Big Night In. But mainly, that’s just the prosecco part. My seafood here was about 1 pound of shrimp and . . . → Read More: Happy New Year's Eve! Seafood Risotto with Prosecco

Cauliflower Goat Cheese Gratin + Beef Wellington Pastry Bot!

title

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had nice meals, presents and what-not. We did. On Christmas we had Beef Wellingtons — thank you cow, again, you were delicious!, this awesome cauliflower gratin and some braised brussels sprouts. Our snow is almost melted now, which is good as I really need to go to work Monday!

Okay, so the cauliflower recipe is based on one by Bobby Flay, but I changed some stuff. Also, our head of cauliflower was on the small side. Adjust amounts as needed for your amount of cauliflower.

We’re getting the promised snow. Winter-Arctic-Blasta-Pooloza! We ventured out to the closest fancy store (Zupans beat New Seasons by about 5 blocks each way) to get Pork Tenderloin and Brussels sprouts for dinner…

Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Broccoli Rabe Pesto

title

This was such a great meal. Plus, it’s fish, olive oil and broccoli rabe so it’s even healthy!

Honestly, I was a little skeptical about: 1. poaching in olive oil and 2. the broccoli rabe not being bitter. But both issues were non-issues, actually. The fish was flaky and wonderful and the pesto was just delicious. I’ve made two batches of pesto so far — jwa likes to eat it on crackers.
