"I made this for a sit-down dinner party and cooked it the day before. The risotto was amazing—creamy and great flavor. Perfect!" – terrycatucci
"The crunch of the pecans, sweetness of the sautéed onions, and contrast of parsley were perfect. I make this again [and] I won't change a thing!" – Hoosier Mom
"Outstanding and very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. Can be made ahead." – Denise E.
Recipe of the Day
Years ago a friend gave me her black-eyed pea recipe that was not your usual black-eyed peas. She called them Cottoneyed Peas. It was a spicy and warm welcome into the New Year. I now get requests for it all the time. You can make it as spicy as you like or, if you don't like spicy, use the peas without jalapeno.
