Illinois Is The Ultimate Foodie's Paradise

I've been on vacation in other states and many times the food isn't as good as in Illinois. We are really spoiled here because our state is a foodie's paradise. There are so many amazing places to eat.

I would consider Chicago the capital of "Foodie Land." Think about all the iconic dishes that have been created in the Windy City including deep-dish pizza, Chicago-style hot dogs, and Italian Beef.

Everyone Has Their Own Favorite Comfort Foods

I believe everyone has their own favorite comfort food. That is a meal that just makes you feel good. I talking about things like spaghetti with meatballs and grilled cheese with tomato soup. I wouldn't call it the most healthy choice.


Illinois' Ultimate Mad Scientist Comfort Food Delicious Mash-Up

I find it interesting how professional chefs can take food that doesn't seem to go together and create something so tasty. Especially, when they are dealing with comfort foods. A restaurant in Chicago is known for its pot pie and deep-dish pizza mash-up. Separately, they are good but I'm not sure how it works together.

Are You Ready For The Pizza Pot Pie?

According to, 

Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. is a restaurant known for a single menu item, the Pizza Pot Pie, and it’s a one-of-a-kind dish you just have to try!

Made from scratch, it's an inverted pizza that was created here at this restaurant.

A Pizza Pot Pie is made with triple-raised Sicilian dough, housemade sauce, a special cheese blend, sausage, and whole mushrooms.

I'm convinced. The pizza pot pie has been added to my "must-try" list for this summer.
