kumquat marmalade. Besides sending me another recipe for a kumquat with gin marmalade, she told me that in Germany, where she lives, they make kumquat caipirinhas.

We had a wonderful weekend. First, we went to Yucaipa to cheer for Andrés Ignacio (9), who had his first swim meet. It was fun and the next one will be on July in Redlands. This one will be Tomás Eugenio (7) first swim meet and now I love to say swimming is becoming a family affair.

Today I made this risotto for the first time. I was “rehearsing” for a dinner next week. But the rehearsal was so good, that I shot the pictures and decided to share the recipe with you.
Light, still flavorful, this is the perfect dish for these spring days and for the summer to come! I hope you enjoy this recipe as I enjoyed making it.
