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…

Homemade Sweet Potato Pie Recipe with Marshmallow Merengue

When I was a kid I wasn’t too adventurous when it came to trying new foods, and the holidays were filled with things I had never heard of.  We spent thanksgiving and Christmas at my grandparents’ house and we always hung out and ate in the basement.  When it came to dessert time there were the usuals, apple pie, pumpkin pie, ice cream, etc.  However, I do remember one time someone, can’t quite recall who it was (maybe my Uncle Jack), who brought a sweet potato pie.  I couldn’t quite grasp the concept of a potato pie because to this…
