Parmesan Cheese Chips

Last week I tried some parmesan cheese “chips” from my local grocery store. They were salty and had just enough crunch to get me through my afternoon snack craving. I used them again the next day to go with a big bowl of warm homemade tomato soup (instead of using crackers) which was delicious together. This week, instead of paying upward of $5-$6 for a small package of 12 parmesan chips. I grabbed my own block of cheese, turned on the oven and set out to make my own.

Making Canne Rosso’s Famous Mascarpone Dessert at Home

We love going to Canne Rosso in Dallas for their authentic wood-fired pizzas! Their pizzas are made with fresh in-house dough using “OO” flour. To make things better, their oven sits at about 900 degrees, making the wait for your pizza only a couple of minutes since they cook in about 90 seconds. You cannot go to Canne Rosso without ordering their famous dessert the “Pinche Julio.” This dessert is not on the menu so you’ll have to remember it’s name to order it. Recently, my husband and I were experimenting with recreating this dessert because we loved it so much.
