Arancini (Rice Balls) with Marinara Sauce Recipe

Arancini (Rice Balls) with Marinara Sauce Recipe
My first taste of authentic arancini, or Italian rice balls, was at Stuzzi Ristorante, a tiny restaurant in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood and just steps from where I attended culinary school. Back then, we knew the local hotspot as Bar Stuzzi, and it was a favorite for Italian small plates paired with towering glasses of crisp Prosecco. I’ll never forget my first taste of arancini, as my eyes went wide at the sight of the baseball-sized rice balls coated in breadcrumbs, deep-fried and served atop a bed of bright red marinara. They were a total triple threat: crunchy, creamy and cheesy. If fried rice isn’t your thing, then arancini are the ultimate excuse for using up what’s left of the ol’ Uncle Ben’s in the fridge. Although many arancini recipes begin with a risotto base, it’s perfectly acceptable to skip the 20-minute stir time and start with day-old rice.

Redfly Creations: The Amazing Amish Cinnamon Bread Alternative The first time I tried Amish cinnamon bread I fell in love. It was so good! Unlike coffee cakes and sweet breads that I had tried, this was very moist with just the perfect touch of sweetness. Over time though, I got weary of kneading the mix everyday, adding this or that ingredient, and separating the batter to give to a friend. For a while I resorted to freezing the batter, but soon I just gave up.
