Savoring Risotto At Brio Tuscan Grille

Food, Tampa

I just took a trip to Tuscany and didn’t even need my passport, can you believe it? Brio Tuscan Grille is certainly bringing Italy to you with their flavor packed seasonal Risotto menu. They invited the hubby and myself to come taste their drool worthy offerings and we couldn’t have been more impressed. We were stuffed to the brim and I might be counting down the minutes to lunch so I can eat my leftovers.

Pumpkins, spice and everything nice, that’s what fall is made of! I don’t always have an abundance of time on my hands (who does?) which leads me to get a little creative with recipes. With the holidays quickly approaching, I found a way to get pumpkin included in pretty much any recipe whether prepared how granny makes it from scratch or semi-homemade. I’ll be sharing this trick below along with talking about how using products with the Real California Milk seal can help those recently affected by hurricane Irma and Harvey.

September 1st officially means I can let my love for all things pumpkin out of the bag.  Don’t tell anyone, but I actually made this Pull Apart Pumpkin Bread recipe over at Sweet Life of Anna in August and it was AMAZING! This pull apart bread was super easy and added a nice twist to the traditional pumpkin bread. To me, this is like pumpkin bread and a cinnamon roll got together to have a baby and Oh. My. Goodness, cutest baby you ever did see! If there is one thing you need to add to your holiday menu list or just because, make sure it’s  this recipe!

You don’t have to purchase a ticket to fly over the Atlantic, but can get your own taste of France right here in Tampa, Florida at Petit Piquant off of Howard.
