8387592742_f6164fd5a8_oTime to put away the kiddie pools, wrap up the grills, and say goodbye to my nice new deck! The leaves have been falling and though I feel like I got jipped from Summer this year, spending half of it pregnant or miserable, I’m ready for Fall! Well I shouldn’t speak too soon, here in New England we had two 90 degree days this week!! Though I love my grilling time, I’m ready to pull out the crock pots, get those soup and stew recipes out and cook up some yummy Fall dishes. I can NOT wait to share with you what the #SundaySupper crew has brought to the table this week! Who doesn’t love putting together a nice simmering soup on a cool crisp day, or how about using those fresh apples and pumpkins to bake your favorite dessert? Well you’ve come to the right place so go get your notebooks, pens and pour yourself a cup of piping coffee, or if your anything like me, a glass of wine on a nice cool Sunday evening and start writing down the recipes you’d like to try this season! This fabulous event is being hosted by Soni from Soni’s Food. Stop over and say hello to her!

I’ll start you off with a dish I put together last Fall. I know I can’t believe it’s taken me a full year to get this out to all of you! Here is the kicker about this awesome dish, well there are two awesome, unbelievable things about it. One, it’s a one pot meal, meaning all you need for your dinner is made in one dish. Two, it’s made in the microwave! YES! The microwave! I was a little skeptical about it however when I bought this new dish I had to try one of the recipes that it came with…..I made it on a night that we were busy so it was quick and simple, I was totally amazed at how creamy and good it was for cooking in the microwave!  Don’t doubt me, I’ve never let you down have I? Give it a shot, I actually just bought the ingredients to make again for my family this week.

Autumn Risotto

  • 2 Stalks of celery, diced
  • 2 oz of 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken, diced (I make chicken in the crock almost weekly for quick and easy recipes! or it’s a good recipe to make when you have leftover chicken from another night.
  • 1/4 Cup of fresh chopped parsley
  • Combine cranberries and water in a dish and set aside.
  • Combine onion, rice and oil in a microwavable casserole dish and stir to combine.
  • Microwave, UNCOVERED on HIGH for 2-4 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add broth, wine, sat and pepper and microwave, COVERED on HIGH for 13 minutes or until rice is slightly firm, stirring once halfway through.
  • Drain cranberries, set aside.Remove dish from microwave (be very careful) Add chicken and celery, stir and microwave, COVERED on HIGH for 3-5 minutes or until rice is tender and risotto appears creamy.
  • Remove dish from microwave again and add blocks of cream cheese and almonds. Stir until cheese is fully incorporated. Fold in cranberries, garnish with parsley if desired.

  1. Thank you! Quick, easy and elegant are a multi-tasking Ninja Baker’s dream come true. So grateful, too, that I can now make good use of the wine leftover from my brother’s visit =)

  2. Yum, this sounds so delicious. I love the addition of cranberries. Last time I made risotto, my shoulder was so sore the next day from all the stirring. I can’t believe this was made in the microwave!

  3. I love seeing all of the different kinds of risottos people come up with. You can really do so much with it! This looks absolutely beautiful
