More success with the Barefoot Contessa! Everything I've made from her cookbooks has been delicious and the two dishes below are no exception.
Chive Risotto Cakes.
This dish takes a little planning since you want the mixture to sit in the fridge for a while so I prepped everything the night before. These were cheesey and oh so yummy. I love fontina cheese. It always melts perfectly. The chives could easily be substituted for another herb, but I really liked the onion flavor.
I wanted something a little sweet to go with the risotto cakes, so I decided to try her Roasted Pears. I didn't have any port so I used red wine instead and walnuts for the pecans. Other than that, I stuck with the recipe and it was great.
