Big, big news from A Little Yumminess! We are incredibly thrilled that our inaugural “A Little Kindness” community fundraising dinner exceeded our wildest expectations, raising $10,600 for critical work that the International Rescue Committee  (IRC) is doing to help refugees here in the Bay Area and around the world. This cause is so very near and dear to our hearts and we believe strongly in the mission of the IRC. We urge you to visit their website and learn more!

Signature Dish

Signature Risotto

Risotto School

It’s pretty cool to have a signature dish and for my kids that means risotto. They never seem to tire of making or eating it. Here they are last night collaborating on a super cozy version with Italian sausage, peas, parmesan and cheddar cheese finished with lemon zest, fresh parsley and drizzle of good olive oil! They decided on the flavors and then totally surprised me by needing very little help aside from my hanging around to serve as safety monitor (this mind you is after a dozen or so attempts where they were able to do more and more each time.). It’s been a nice strategy for them to focus on just one dish and really figure it out… and a pretty great feeling  for me to stand back and watch my little people knock out this killer meal.
