Shrimp Risotto and a Whole Foods Gift Card Giveaway!

Whole Foods is celebrating their Parmigiano Reggiano cheese again this year and they want to give a lucky reader a $50 gift card to use in their stores!  All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post and you will be entered for the giveaway.  To celebrate this cheese, I'm posting a recipe that I actually made for Valentine's Day dinner this year - a cheesy saffron risotto with poached shrimp on top.  It's out of this world. I made it as a first course for the dinner.

Strawberries Stuffed with Mascarpone Cheese

If you're like me, most of the time for Valentine's I prefer to stay home and prepare a nice dinner myself. And it's not just because Valentine's Day is notorious for being a bad night to go out, but it's nice to make something a little more luxurious than normal and break out some of the great wine we have at home. So if you are one of those people who are going to make a Valentine's dinner yourself, maybe the dinner is work enough for you and you don't want to labor over a complicated dessert. These easy stuffed strawberries are quick and simple to fix and go great with a glass of champagne.

Happy Valentine's Day!
