3 cheese risotto with crispy leeks

Difficulty: 2/5

Risotto is my favourite comfort food. If you’ve never cooked risotto before, then this is the perfect recipe to start with. I used Mozzarella, Gruyère and Parmesan cheese; which really are my favourite cooking cheeses. If you like blue cheese or other strong cheeses, I recommend that you crumble them on top instead of adding them into the risotto as it can be a bit overwhelming. On top of this risotto I put crispy leeks, which are not only really easy to make, but they are also really tasty. I like to put it on my salads and fish also.

Salmon with olives, capers and cherry tomatoes

Difficulty 1/5

I love this recipe because the acidity from the white wine with the olives, capers and cherry tomatoes does wonders to a piece of perfectly pan-fried salmon. You can even use this with other fish you have at hand and it would still be great. On the side, I did some baked potatoes which are super easy and you can use with other dishes you like.

Sausage and apple stuffing

Difficulty 1/5

In general I’m not a fan of stuffing. It bothers me that it’s all watery, and to be honest I don’t think it’s very hygenic to cook it inside the turkey because it will reach a safe temperature after the turkey does, so you either overcook the turkey or eat unsafe stuffing. I just don’t fancy it. Howeeeeever, I recently discovered that there are people who cook it apart, I think they call it “dressing”, and so I thought I would give it a try, and I LOVED IT! I ate it and thought “now we’re talking!” The sausage I bought is very neutral because we’re using the meat inside which goes amazing with the apples (Granny Smith and Pink Lady) and the toasted baguette.
