One of my secrets to eating well and staying healthy is having any food I want. Truly, nothing is off limits to me: chocolate cake, pork sausage; butter on warm crusty bread, burgers and pizza….my list of decedent indulgences is endless. But here’s the thing: when it comes to these riches I just have a little, so light and fresh is still the majority of what I eat each day.
That’s why I am so hooked on mini. From the sliders served in nearly every restaurant these days to two-bite brownies that hit the spot perfectly after a meal, mini food lets you have exactly what you want without overdoing it. In the latest issue of Fine Cooking, I share my favorite mini pizza recipe with you.
Now it is your turn to take mini for a spin: for the next month,I’m challenging you to post your own photos of your favorite treats that you’ve downsized, and tell me how you’ve packed indulgence into satisfying small bites. For instructions on how to take the challenge, see the box at right. I can’t wait to see (and taste) what you come up with.
