Homemade Pizza with Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

If you haven’t noticed by reading my blog billyparisi.com, I love pizza.  No, like I really love pizza and especially pizza dough.  Whenever I travel to other cities I do my best to research and identify that city’s best pizza and then go try it out.  Out of all the places I’ve traveled to or have lived in, Chicago, New York, St. Louis, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, I still have a favorite pizza place and it’s where I went to college.  The university of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri has the best pizza joint of all time, Shakespeare’s.  It’s so…

Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup Recipe

    There are few things in this world that I enjoy more than a hot bowl of chicken and dumpling soup when it is 2° outside.  Fortunately, there’s been a ton of soup making and eating lately, unfortunately it’s absolutely freezing outside making it dang near impossible to leave the house.  Every time I step outside I want to smack myself thinking about me complaining that it was too hot out way back in August.  HOW DARE I!!  Most of the country are actually feeling the effects of this cold winter, which makes this creamy chicken and dumpling soup…

Homemade Struffoli Recipe with Honey and Pecans

The last time I went to make struffoli, or as some may know it, pignolata, I was a total hack.  I was chef’n on the site Fix My Recipe and was trying to recall as much about food as I could even after being out of it for a few years at that point.  I was doing the site because I loved food and loved video but I was pretty young and didn’t quite have the passion and experience I needed.  When I made the struffoli back then the little dough balls were rock solid and honestly tasted like nothing…

Egg Nog Crème Brulee Recipe with Kahlua and Whipped Cream

Believe it or not, one of my favorite things during the Christmas season is egg nog.  It was something I couldn’t stand as a kid, but man do I love it now! It’s not like I’m chugging gallons at a time, but I do love a nice cold glass of egg nog.  With all that in mind, I figured mixing some into some crème brulee – along with some Kahlua – would be a pretty good idea. Man was I right! It’s delicious and not ridiculously easy to make, believe it or not. Traditionally, you want to put everything in…

Chocolate and Orange Panettone Recipe

I remember growing up in Detroit and always going to these huge extravagant Christmas Eve parties at my dad’s side of the family.  They were absolutely loaded with food, music, games and fun.  If you know an Italian just ask them about how much food is rolled out on any holiday throughout the year, you’ll be floored.  Honestly, you’d think we were getting ready to feed the entire neighborhood with the amount of food that is made.  There were literally several different tables set up by courses for you to go through and pick what you’d like to eat.  Obviously…
