Springtime Asparagus Risotto
Start risotto before guests arrive. When it is about halfway cooked, cover, and remove from heat. About 20 minutes before dinner is served, finish cooking risotto. Stir in asparagus and cheese.
Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
I usually make my filling ahead of time and stuff the eggs just before serving. These beauties are difficult to transport once assembled and garnished.
