Sometimes you need something simple, easy, and in less than 30 minutes. This risotto is the answer to all life's questions, even the ones you didn't ask!

This is Day 2 of having migraine and having to cancel stream.

I don’t feel as guilty when I have to cancel stream now than I did when I first started.  I treat this like a job, but I also know that if I make myself more sick I would have to cancel a lot more than 1 or 2 streams a week.

It’s all about self care.  

Self care is also doing things like making your favorite risotto dish that takes no time, hardly any prep, and calms you to your bones!

This is where the Instant Pot comes into play.  Did you know you can make an amazing risotto in the Instant Pot in less than 20 minutes from start to finish?

The secret is to warm up the stock prior.  

Perfect risotto 100% of the time!
