One of my most favorite meals is deep dish pizza. Growing up in Chicago, cornmeal crust deep dish pizza is a common style of crust, the cornmeal adds a great flavor to the crust and filled with all of your favorite toppings topped with a tangy tomato sauce. Preparation for the pizza is simple and bakes to a crispy outside but a soft inside on the crust. Check out the recipe below.
As it snows here in Minnesota, there is nothing better then sitting inside having a bowl of soup keeping warm. Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup is a great change to the normal chili and is simple to prepare and packed with flavor from the spices and fresh vegetables. Most of the ingredients I had in my cupboard and it can be made in as quick as 30 minutes, but the longer it cooks the better the flavor just like most soups out there. This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken or the turkey from your holidays.
While I was on a vacation to Washington DC, I had an amazing chocolate pecan pie that has stuck with me for the past week. the richness and sweetness of the pie was fantastic. For my Mini Chocolate Pecan Pie Cookies, I added the richness of the shortbread cookie in place of the pie crust and they are packed with a rich chocolate flavor that mixes with the nutty flavor of the pecans makes these an amazing addition to your normal holiday cookies, or anytime of the year. Check out the recipe below.
