Winter Recipes from Nigella Lawson

This morning’s edition of Morning Edition featured a segment with Nigella Lawson, who shared two winter recipes (Doughnut French Toast and Cheddar Cheese Risotto), along with her thoughts on self-indulgence:

“Lawson says people denying themselves — anything fried, or anything containing butter, for instance — is one of the biggest food problems. Indulging in those things once in a while, she says, makes it easier to balance them with lighter fare, like soups and steamed vegetables.

‘I actually feel that I eat very healthily,” she says. “My only problem is that I eat enough for five healthy people.'”

Listen to the story here, (if you can stand Steve Inskeeps’ over indulgent lip smacking!)

      I made the Cheddar Cheese Risotto last night. Very cheesy, delicious, and kinda fun to make! Called up friend Pat, chatted and sipped wine while stirring – in all from start to finish, about 30 min. prep. Served with simple gormet blend greens, dried cranberries, walnuts and poppyseed dressing. Delish (as Rachel Ray would say – if you watch her, that is a very too repeated comment!)
      This recipe is a keeper – hope everyone who tries it, enjoys it, too.

    Nigella’s chedder cheese risotto – so easy, so cheesy! Used good quality chedder, chablis, shallots – took less than 1/2 hour start to finish. Side simple salad, gormet blend greens with dried cranberries, walnuts, poppy seed dressing.
    Really, everyone must try this recipe. Bite per bite, it packs a wallop of cheesy richness.
