I never did find that rice, but what I did find was a prepacked mix for Archer Farms Red Pepper Risotto. I've tried making it before, and I wasn't a very big fan. But what it did have was Arborio rice. So I decided to buy the box, use the rice and throw out their separately prepackaged seasonings. It worked out pretty flawlessly. The only catch was I had no idea how much rice I was getting until I opened the box, but it worked out to be almost half of her recipe.
A second change I made was the addition of goat cheese. I didn't really want to add it to my risotto, so I went to Dee's standard risotto recipe for inspiration. There she recommended a mix of Parmesan, Romano, and Asiago Cheese, and Target actually sold a mix of the 3 all grated and packaged together. So I went with that, and now I can officially say that I've made my first risotto!
Now that I've master a Pioneer Woman recipe, I guess that means I need to keep making them. I'm thinking her cinnamon rolls might be a good one to try! Anyone else ever made a Pioneer Woman recipe? What's your favorite?
