Yield: Serves 5

Is there anything worse than being stuck in an endless spiral of confusion and bureaucracy that is practically mandatory when dealing with things like taxes, bills, insurance, HR departments, or...

    Despite the fact I’m a 20-something, public relations major who blogs and loves social media, I truly value traditional methods of communication. Emails, texts and automated responses will never compare to handwritten letters and phone conversations, no matter how much technology advances.

    Thanks for the farro recipe! I bought my sister farro for her birthday (along with a cookbook, etc.) but we don’t have a great recipe to try.

    Is this more of a true risotto that stands alone as a main course? Or is it more of a side dish that requires a protein? If so, what would it pair well with?

    On a side note, your food photos always look so scrumptious! Now, I definitely appreciate it since starting my blog and trying to figure everything out. It’s so hard to make food look delicious, even when it is! I’ve only posted once about food with my camera phone (eek!), but the next two recipes that I have on board were photographed with a better camera. Anyways, thanks for the photo inspiration too!

      I ate this risotto for lunch and it was quite filling (each serving has 10g of protein and 6g of fiber) but for dinner I would probably serve it with chicken or shrimp. This dish would pair well with just about anything!

      Thank you and congrats on your blog! Food photography is not easy and it took me a long time to begin to feel like my photos weren’t terrible (definitely still have those feelings sometimes). I cringe whenever I see my photos from an old post.
