Brown Rice and Vegetable Risotto
Although I made a lot of changes, I still give this recipe the props for getting me to a delicious brown rice risotto! First, I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth because that's what I had on-hand. Second, I only used the onion from this recipe, and added mushrooms a few minutes after sautéing the onion and garlic (used mushrooms because I was pairing this with chicken marsala). The mushroom flavor really stood out at the end - it was delicious! Will definitely be making this again, maybe next time with more veggies!

Avocado Dessert
I loved this! Definitely an interesting taste at first, but very delicious. Was a big hit at our avocado-themed book/food club :) Used 3 medium avocados and doubled everything else. I also used a splenda/sugar blend instead of plain white sugar.
