Project Food Challenge: New York Style Pizza

I know that there's nothing quite like a pizza in New York, but this hot and bubbly version of a New York style pizza that is topped with homemade sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice (I'm a fan of just pepperoni) is sure to satisfy your taste buds.  This pizza takes quite a bit more effort than my quick and easy pizza night recipe, but the extra effort is well worth it!

On a side note, because this pizza is a real challenge and takes a bit more effort than regular pizza like I said above, I'm starting a new category of posts called Project Food Challenge where we showcase nothing less than the most challenging recipes to master. This New York Style Pizza would fit right in. So in other words if you're up to the challenge of making a difficult recipe, look for this category of posts...more coming soon.

The Secret To Making Homemade Dinner Rolls

Pin It

"Is there anything better than butter? Think it over, any time you taste something that's delicious beyond imagining and you say 'what's in this?' the answer is always going to be butter. The day there is a meteorite rushing toward Earth and we have thirty days to live, I am going to spend it eating butter. Here is my final word on the subject, you can never have too much butter."- Julie Powell, Julie & Julia

You guessed it, there is butter--lots of butter--in these rolls, and I must say, they are amazing.  They are everything you want in a perfect dinner roll: buttery, doughy, baked to a perfect golden brown, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious!  You won't be able to eat just one.

The Secret To Making The Best Homemade Turkey Burgers

Pin It

Turkey Burgers are one of those things, at least for me, that I'm kind of iffy about eating. I'm not really sure if I like them or not because I'm a burger guy after all. Being a burger guy translates to, "Where's the beef?" to borrow a famous ad slogan from the 80's. Turkey burgers just aren't beef, they taste like something else entirely, which isn't bad if you know how to make them taste good. That's just exactly what this post will teach you, and maybe every once in awhile you'll say, "Where's the turkey?" That's because the way we make them aren't your usual run of the mill turkey burgers, they got taste, and a lot of it. Here's how to do them at home using our method.
