I adore polenta so I m an expert on it. This recipe is indeed very good.
In fact your blog is full of great recipes. Do you make them up or do you copy it from some smart books?
Keep up the good work!

Rose, thanks for stopping by. I have pulled these recipes from various books and online, and I try to credit them when possible.

I choose recipes I think my daughter might make while she's away at college--she lives in an apartment with a full kitchen and other girls who like to cook. I add now and then as I find more good but simple things.

If she actually cooks it the girls in her flat are very lucky indeed! Maybe I will stop by and ask for dinner one of these days ;)
