After an intense game of Pictionary on Sunday night — which was accompanied by four bottles of wine — I needed to cuddle up to something warm and comforting last night for dinner after my long day at work post-Pictionary. How would you draw “clear cut”?!

My dad taught me how to make risotto. It is definitely up there with one of my favorite meals. Mostly because cooking with my dad is so much fun. I know a lot of people say “Oh, my dad is great,” but I mean I truly can kick it with pops. We knock back a few Pinot Noir’s and tell overly-animated stories while somehow managing to make perfect risotto every time.
