Savory pumpkin, sweet maple, peppery arugula, creamy mozzarella, and salty parmigiano-regiano. Is your mouth watering? It should be. There are many fall dishes out there, in fact fall recipes are some of my favorite to try. However there is one dish that is the ultimate autumn nibble, and this is it.
We all have moments where we make a meal and think "damn...that's so good." However there's a very rare moment as a home cook when you eat something and think, "wow, that is restaurant quality." This is going to be one of those moments for you.
Pumpkin Risotto may sound "basic" but this is anything but. The recipe comes from Chef Michael Romano at Union Square Cafe and can be found in their cookbook. Risotto, while time consuming is not difficult. This one has a secret weapon that turns it from fine food to five star dining. Dinner party? Romantic meal? Tasty dinner for one? Doesn't matter, make this!
Barn doors are everywhere, I'd say they're having a moment, but let's be honest, they're having a whole hour! I knew I wanted to add them somewhere in our house, but I also knew that I wasn't going to pay the hefty price tag that they came with. The closet that is sort of part of my dining room and sort of part of my kitchen and sort of it's own area finally bothered me enough to update it, and it was the perfect space to add this element! It only cost me $20 to update them. I think it's definitely a good bang for your buck.
