A Delicious Fall Risotto

I am a risotto freak. As soon as the weather starts to turn chilly, I swap out salads and light, no-cook meals for hearty fare just as happily as my summer clothing. To me, risotto is one of the most lovely dishes: Its soft, tender texture and creaminess always seem to hit the spot. But even a dish seemingly so perfect has a downfall: It takes so long to make! Lucky for us, the Real Simple test kitchen created a low-maintenance, almost hands-free recipe, so you can do something else (like actually take a minute to kick your feet up and relax) rather than stir a pot of Arborio.

Day 20: Cajun Chicken With Collard Greens

To finish off our daily dinner blog, we have Kathleen Harris, managing editor of RealSimple.com. Kathleen directs all aspects of the website, including Simply Stated.

 

It’s the final day of our month of dinners, and I think we ended with a bang. When it came time for the staff to choose which recipe he or she wanted to make, I agreed to try whichever one was left. To my surprise, the Cajun Chicken With Collard Greens recipe was still on the list. I think collard greens might scare off some people, but just think of them as delicious warm, leafy, good-for-you greens. In this recipe, they weren’t overly bitter and instead provided a really nice complement to the chicken dish. Alas, I’m getting ahead of myself.

Day 18: Seared Steak with Cauliflower Puree

Tonight’s steak dinner was prepared by Lauren Epstein, deputy photo editor for Real Simple. Lauren helps plan the photos and photo shoots for the magazine.

I’m having a tough time negotiating the weeknight meal lately. Since the birth of my daughter Lucy two and a half years ago, a typical dinner has taken on the form of a cooking marathon. It begins around 5:30 with me racing down the subway stairs, narrowly missing the train, followed by a jog through the aisles of Whole Foods, and then a fast-paced 10 minute walk home to relieve my babysitter at 6:30pm. I have this reoccurring speech/pep talk in my head; “Ok, I have one and a half hours to unpack the groceries, slice and dice, play with Lucy, assemble dinner, read some children’s books, put dinner in the oven, set the table, put my daughter to bed….ready, set, go!” Just writing this exhausts me.

Day 15: Balsamic-Glazed Pork with Lentils

Closing out week 3 is Ashley Tate, staff editor of Real Simple and Money Rant blogger on Simply Stated. For the print magazine, Ashley edits the Moneywise section and the Discounts & Deals page in the back of the magazine.

 

I grew up in a small town in southwest Kansas. (Please don’t ask how many Wizard of Oz references I’ve endured through the years.) Some years during the county fair, my dad’s business would buy a pig from a child who raised the animal as a 4-H project. Then all that following winter, the freezer would be stuffed with locally-grown pork. As a result, I love eating pork in just about every form—loin, chop, belly, shoulder, and of course, bacon. So making the Balsamic-glazed Pork with Lentils recipe was right up my alley.
