Fireman Bob recently dedicated a recipe of his to me. His "Kicked up Beef Stock". What better way to honor his delicious gift with a rich, creamy risotto. I hope to do you proud Bob. You can tuck this one back for cooler weather, or be bold and do it now. Bob's delicious stock is labor intensive, but oh so worth it. I know some of us have our own stock on hand in the freezer, waiting to be put to use, so if you're feeling it go for it!!
