Picture from yesterdays Challenge

Okay I finally posted my page for the Recipe Swap we are doing for the Club QK meeting next Monday.. It is summery. I am proud to say they I made 12 of these 6x6 pages with paper I had in my stash. The dies are outlined with Stickles.. Love them.. I think I did all of these in under 3hrs. Now I need to work on next month's pages which is Main Dishes..

Here is the recipe on the card.
Cheesy Risi e Bisi Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray (
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup arborio rice
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 to 4 cups chicken stock,
1 quart size box, available on soup aisle of the market
1/4 to 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano, a generous handful
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 cup tiny frozen peas

Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil and garlic and onion and saute, stirring constantly 2 to 3 minutes then add rice and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook another minute or so then add wine and let it completely absorb, 30 seconds. Add about 1 cup chicken stock and stir. Reduce heat a bit to medium. Stir often and continue adding a half cup of liquid each time liquid becomes completely absorbed. Cook 22 minutes, using as much stock as is necessary to result in creamy-consistency rice with a bite to it. When rice is cooked to desired consistency, remove from heat and stir in cheese, parsley and peas and stir to combine and to heat peas through.
