    This was a simple but great recipe. I had run out of everything, so I actually only used Cheddar cheese, organic risotto, extra virgin olive oil, margarine, white wine, and some basil leaves instead of the chives. Being vegetarian I used veg stock. Result was a fab, creamy risotto that tasted great. (I used 1 cup of rice and about 1 1/2 cup of cheese).

I live in NC and work as a marketing executive for a title insurance company. I live with my husband and 2 daughters in a house built in 1883 that we are restoring. We are all history buffs, so it is a labor of love. I have always loved to cook, although now that I work full-time I don't get to do it as much as I like. I love decorating for different seasons and holidays. I love china, flatware and stemware and love to change tablesettings. My favorite cooking show is "Good Eats" on the Food Network. Funny and educational are a great combination! <img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f249/Dreamgoddess555/Narrow1-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Octoberevent.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/personal/FRENCH-foodfun.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/EditBeforeandAfterSTICKER.jpg"><img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/holidaylightssticker.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/Comfortstickercopysmall.jpg"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/MuffinLovesticker.jpg"><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/L%5B1%5D.F-stickJPEG.jpg"><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/peacefulnightdove/stpatchallenge.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/PastastickerJPEG.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Kaffee-sticker.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Flourpowersticker.jpg"><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/SoupsandsaladSTICKER.jpg"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg"><img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/MayFlowerssticker.jpg"><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/peacefulnightdove/memdaych.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/PotLuckSTICKER.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Camera-ChefsJPEG.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CobblerPieTartSTICKER.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BeyondburgersST.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/InternationalSTICKER.jpg"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/i-connected-125.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/LiteLowSTKR.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/BellywarmersSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/CookathonforKarensticker.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/EZSTKR.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/PropitUpSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s124/Cookin-jo/CookspiritsSTKR-1.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/Table-setting-STKR.jpg"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/TeaSuppers-STKR.jpg">
