Looking for quick, easy recipes? With healthy, seasonal ingredients?

There are over 250 recipes, all with detailed Nutrition Analysis.

But if this is what you are looking for - here's the recipe:

Risotto with Shrimp, Scallops and Mushrooms

Total time: 30 minutes
     With a simple Spinach Salad to start, this makes a quick, yet elegant main course, suitable for a romantic 'Dinner a Deux'. As with all risottos, this will be quite soft when finished.  It will continue to absorb liquid and the leftovers (if any) will be very stiff.  The risottos that we have eaten in northern Italy have all been served in soup plates (flattish bowls) and eaten with a spoon - not a fork. 

 Ingredients:Shrimp Risotto

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.

My information comes from my own digital, computerized scale and the USDA Nutrient Data Library:



The fine print:

The recipes do NOT use processed foods, with the exception of The recipes DO use lots and lots of fresh, seasonal, and (we hope) local produce

Most recipes are designed for 2 servings, but are easily increased to 4... or 6.... or 8...
     Naturally, whether or not the serving size suits you depends on appetite, activity level, and all sorts of stuff we know nothing about.
