Sangria Blanco

Sarah’s Sangria

Our friend Sarah is well-known in the group for her sangria recipe. Whenever she has a party, she puts out a pitcher of sangria mix and a bottle of ginger ale, alongside instructions for mixing them — half and half, unless you’d like it stronger or lighter. I love it so much, I now serve it at my parties, too.

Sweet Potato Risotto

Making risotto takes patience, which is part of why Guy is so good at making it. I much prefer his risotto to any I could get in a restaurant, and he often makes it for special occasions.

This risotto has soft cubes of sweet potato, dry white wine, Parmesan cheese, and fresh oregano.
