cooking with love

My husband has a philosophy that cooking with love makes the meal; without it the result is mediocre at best, inedible at worst. Here's his advice for foolproof risotto:

A proper risotto should not be runny; you must nurse the precious starch from the unwashed grain through a combination of flavored liquid, gentle heat, and love. If it is too runny, you have not added enough heat or love. Of course, if you are adding cheese, that will reduce much of the apparent liquid and thicken it up. In this case you can reduce the amount of love by 1 Tbs for each palm-full of cheese.

End result, slightly sticky, not much liquid. You can always sprinkle more love over the top when done. Garnish with affection.

All I can say is I'm not complaining :)
