    The pizza tasted exactly like Papa Johns, so it wasn't horrible-tasting. It was poorly constructed, as you can see from the picture, there is one slice that has no toppings on it. A monkey could have assembled it better.

    Those meatball subs turned out great. My biggest secret to making the perfect meatball sub is to not only make your own meatball, but hollow out the bread, hit the insides with some Olive Oil Spray, and throw that sucker under the broiler until its lightly toasted. Your sandwiches with never fall apart at the end.

    A restaurant called Bella Notte here in Kentucky. I know its a stupid name, but their food is amazing, the staff is friendly, and I have loads of respect for their very creative chef.

    This was from their Fall seasonal menu. I will recreate this in my kitchen in the next few months.

    They are difficult to eat and you look like the missing link doing it, but they have an excellent texture and flavor. The ones in the picture were boiled, brined in a dressing, and served cold.

    Everybody loved those. I wish I could have shared them with everyone!

    I had some free Taco Bell a couple months back. I posted stock photos from their website of the particular menu items that I had and made fun of the pictures because they look nothing like the food that they serve.
