Summer Blog Challenge, Day 18- A Recipe I Love

For the mama who loves to cook as much as I do, you would think this would be an easy one, right?  Well, it is not.  I have so many recipes that I love, and once again I am asked to choose just one...  So, I am going to choose three! :)

I am going to go with a theme here- favorite comfort foods.  My ultimate favorite comfort food is risotto.  I call it grown-up mac 'n cheese.  What I like most about risotto is that it is SO versatile!  You can add just about whatever you would like to it.  But good risotto does require patience.  It takes a while for the chicken broth (or veggie broth) to be absorbed by the rice, plus you have to park yourself by the stove for about an hour.  But it is so worth it!  Here is a link to my very own Summertime Risotto recipe- click here.

For snowy winter evenings or a rainy day, I love to make Avgolemono Soup- a Greek chicken lemon soup.  My favorite recipe for it also happens to be a Cooking Light recipe (healthy too!).  Click here for the recipe.

And we can't forget the ultimate comfort food dessert- chocolate chip cookies!  I actually just stumbled across this recipe from Once Upon a Chef last week, and it is unanimous in this house that it is now our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I featured this cookie in my Pinspiration in the Kitchen post last Friday- click here.  (You can also find a link to the recipe in my post.) ;)

What are some of your favorite recipes?  Feel free to share the links to them below in the comments! :)
