Slow Cooker Meyer Lemon Risotto

My good friend, Adriana S., gifted me some of her Meyer lemons from her backyard and I could not wait for the inspiration to hit what to do with them. I had never seen such huge Meyer lemons but they were ripe for the picking, incredibly juicy and so fragrant I knew I had to do something special with them. My tendency towards savory verses sweet led to the creation of this creamy risotto. The fragrant, slightly sweet lemon is the perfect burst of freshness to a traditional buttery and nutty Parmesan Italian staple. This a keeper as a side dish or a vegetarian meal. This rice dish would be a nice addition to your holiday buffets.


Slow Cooker Linguine with Clam Sauce

My daughter recently ordered linguine with white clam sauce at an Italian restaurant and it got me thinking if this garlicky goodness could be successfully made in a slow cooker. Well, she went back for two helpings and we decided this was as good as or even better than the restaurant one. Mission accomplished!
