I love the Thai Chicken Linguini at The Cheesecake Factory, however I don’t love the (sometimes) 1-2 hour wait for a table. When you’re hungry, you’re hungry! I was saddened to find out this entree has been removed from their menu as of 2014. Sadness prevails…

So, I went on a bit of a search to find a good copycat recipe and  found a great one posted by Amy, at Sing For Your Supper that fits the bill. I have made this many times, and love the smooth and creamy Thai peanut sauce that coats the pasta, and the crunchy peanut garnish.

Why NOT Make Thai Chicken Linguini At Home?

Seriously…why wait endlessly for a table when you can make Thai chicken linguini for much less $$, but with the same results at home? It’s really not that difficult at all! Grab some chopsticks or a fork and dig in! I really think you will love this delicious dish! It’s so good!

A portion of the Thai chicken linguini, garnished with cilantro and chopped peanuts.

Thai chicken linguini is very easy to make, the flavors are magnificent, and it certainly makes for some delicious leftovers. Well, you will only have leftovers if you don’t polish all of it off in one sitting!

The creamy peanut sauce, chicken breast and the crunch of chopped peanuts make this one tasty entree. I could practically spoon up the sauce and eat it all by itself… it’s THAT good. Hope you will give this Thai chicken linguini a try! The recipe can easily be doubled. Have a great day.

Chicken Piccata

My husband and I were invited to dinner in the home of good friends from our church a few months ago. We had a wonderful time visiting and then we were treated to a delicious Chicken Piccata dinner (I got to help my friend Sandy a bit in the kitchen—but SHE did 99% of the “work”).

I had never eaten Chicken Piccata before, so I was incredibly surprised how easy to make (as well as how light and delicious) the chicken was, thanks to the subtle flavors of lemons, garlic, capers and white wine.

A great meal and great conversation with dearly loved friends…what more could we ask for? We are so blessed with the friends in our lives…truly a gift from God.

Dinner with friends where we enjoyed chicken piccata.
Well, needless to say… I left their home that evening clutching the recipe in hand (can you see me smiling?). I’ve made this recipe many times since then, but keep forgetting to take a photo.

Soooo… I included a photo of the delicious Chicken Piccata my friend Sandy made the evening we joined them for dinner… I guess it counts if I sliced some lemons, gave it a little stir, took the picture, and ate the chicken, right? Ha! Have a great day!

  • Salt and Pepper (to season chicken cutlets with)
  • 6 Tablespoons vegetable oil

My husband and I love pizza! We especially adore Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza…it’s so amazing! While there isn’t too much that is healthy in a slice or two of a good one, occasionally we just want the sheer cheesiness (new word) and oozy goodness of hot pizza. Nine times out of ten we just order from our favorite place, or I will throw together a homemade one, if the mood hits.

However…sometimes you just have a craving for a humongous deep dish pizza. You know, the kind that can feed a small village or two. That kind. I started searching online for the basics of a good deep-dish pizza and came upon this one. It sounded pretty easy, and I knew I could add a few things to personalize it for our taste buds to be delighted.

This Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza Tastes GREAT!

The results with this deep dish pizza were fantastic! Stuffed FULL of goodies, this pizza came out of our oven just screaming to be devoured. Hot, cheesy, and full of flavor…yes, yes, yes! I sure hope you enjoy this. I know we did.

A Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza, ready to slice and eat!
This pizza takes a bit of prep time (for dough to rise, etc.), but I know you will LOVE the finished product…absolutely delicious! C’mon…you KNOW you want a big ol’ bite of this deep dish pizza…can you smell it? Ooooooh! Hope you enjoy it!

Calories Per Serving: 464 kcal

Ingredients
For the dough:
  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 TBSP all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon. instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons water , at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 teaspoon. olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter , softened
For the sauce:
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon. dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic , minced or pressed
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can petite-diced tomatoes
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Ground black pepper , to taste
  • Salt , to taste
For the filling and topping:
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped or sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 links Italian sausage , cooked (spicy or sweet, w/casing removed and crumbled, cooked in skillet)
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1/4 oz. grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 TBSP)
  • 4 thin slices provolone cheese
  • 8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese (approx. 2 cups)
Instructions
  1. Make the dough: Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer, until well blended. Attach the dough hook and mix in the water and melted butter on low speed for 1-2 minutes. Scrape dough down from sides of bowl, as needed. Increase the speed to medium-low and knead until dough is glossy and smooth (approx. 3-4 minutes)
  2. Coat a medium bowl with 1 tsp. of the olive oil. Transfer the dough to bowl, turning once to coat with oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; let rise at room temperature until nearly doubled in size (approx. 45-60 minutes)
  3. Once dough has risen, turn it out onto a lightly floured, dry work surface and roll it into an 8x6 inch rectangle. To laminate the dough, spread the softened butter over the surface, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edge.
  4. Starting at the short end, roll the dough into a tight cylinder. With the seam side down, flatten the cylinder into a 9x2 inch rectangle, then fold into thirds like a business letter. Pinch the seams to form a ball, and return dough to oiled bowl.
  5. Cover tightly again with plastic wrap and let rise in the refrigerator for 40-50 minutes till it has risen quite a bit. (not doubled, but close)
  6. Prepare the sauce: In medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  7. Stir in the onion, mushrooms, green pepper, oregano, and salt. Saute until the liquid has nearly evaporated and the onion is golden brown, stirring often, about 3-5 minutes.
  8. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30-45 seconds.
  9. Stir in the tomatoes and sugar, then increase the heat to medium-high. Bring the mixture just to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer until reduced to about 1 1/4 cups (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in basil and oil.
  10. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a 9 inch round cake pan with olive oil.
  12. To assemble and make pizza: Move the dough to a dry, lightly floured work surface and roll out into a 13 inch disk, about 1/4 inch thick. Fold in half and carefully transfer the dough to the pan. Unfold, and lightly press the dough to line the bottom of the pan and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. If the dough resists stretching, wait 5 minutes before trying again.
  13. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of the shredded mozzarella over the surface of the dough. Then layer 1/2 of the sauce over the cheese. Next layer is the sausage and pepperoni. Then add the other 1/2 of the sauce on top of the meat. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella, the provolone slices, and the Parmesan cheese. I also sprinkle the top with a a bit more dried oregano.
  14. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes (mine took 25), until the crust is golden brown. Remove pizza from oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing (trust me on this...holds together better this way).
Recipe Notes

This recipe may seem a bit labor intensive, but if you brown the Italian sausage, and cook the sauce during the "rising" times of the dough, it really isn't so much. The hardest part really is just waiting for the dough to rise...and for that FIRST TASTE! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili

Nothing beats a piping hot bowl of Mom’s old-fashioned chili (just how Mom made it), to serve for lunch or dinner on a cold day! Easy to make, and tastes delicious!Nothing beats a piping hot bowl of Mom's old-fashioned chili to serve for lunch or dinner on a cold day! Easy to make-tastes delicious!

On a cold, wintry day nothing tastes as good as a big bowl of Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili…just the way my Mom always made it for us growing up. The tradition continues, and I’ve been using this family recipe for evuhhhhh! So easy. So GOOD! I think you’ll like it, too.

It’s Easy To Make Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili Vegetarian!

The awesome part is that if you simply omit the meat Mom’s old-fashioned chili can be a totally vegetarian meal. I know this amazing tidbit because I’ve tried it (we have two vegetarians and a vegan in our family) and they loved this hearty chili, too.

So…grab the ingredients, a wooden spoon, knife, cutting board, a big stockpot (or crock pot) and make a big pot of Mom’s old-fashioned chili.  After tasting it, get ready to say “Thank You, JB’s Mom!!!!!!”

I make Mom’s old-fashioned chili year-round, but it is an especially good comforting and filling dish when it is COLD outside. I’ve even left the meat out of this recipe to make a completely vegetarian chili when family members (who are vegetarian or vegan) come over for dinner. It tastes wonderful, even without the meat!

It’s EASY To Make Mom’s Old-Fashioned Chili

Making Mom’s old-fashioned chili couldn’t be any easier!  Ground beef, onions and green peppers are cooked until meat is cooked through.

The meat, onions and peppers are then added to a large soup pot on the stove (or a crock pot) for cooking.

The rest of the ingredients are stirred into the pot, and cooked for about 1½ hours on the stove top, or for 5-6 hours in the slow cooker on low heat.  Once done, Mom’s old-fashioned chili is ladled into bowls, garnished with sour cream, cheese and cilantro, then served!

Sometimes I change the recipe up and add different quantities of canned beans to this chili, based on what I have in the pantry at the time. You really can’t hurt this delicious chili!

The printable recipe shown below is the standard recipe I use 99% of the time for making a big pot of Mom’s old-fashioned chili!

A bowl of Mom's old-fashioned chili, topped with sour cream and grated cheddar cheese.

I can almost smell it cooking away on the stove…yum! It’s also really good garnished with some fresh cilantro, additional grated cheddar cheese, and a small dollop of sour cream!

Sure hope you enjoy Mom’s Old Fashioned Chili! It is a great tasting, hearty, filling soup, and I really think you will love it! Have a great day!

Fried Chicken, Spicy Mayo and Slaw Sandwich

You’re going to love this fried chicken sandwich on a toasted bun, with spicy mayo and slaw. Recipe is from Bon Appétit magazine, and tastes fantastic!You're going to love this fried chicken sandwich on a toasted bun, with spicy mayo and slaw. Recipe from Bon Appétit magazine, and tastes fantastic!

So here’s the story… my friend gave me a subscription to Bon Appétit magazine last year. My husband was looking through one of the issues and came upon this recipe for a Fried Chicken, Spicy Mayo and Slaw Sandwich.

Being the nice guy that he is, he hinted mentioned to me (of course rather casually) that it sure sounded good, and was wondering if I thought I could make this recipe. It sounded pretty straightforwards, so I made it!

Preparing The Fried Chicken Sandwich

The sandwich calls for fried chicken. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts which were coated in flour, and buttermilk, and then fried in a skillet (in oil) until done. Large chicken breasts are cut in half, so they cook faster than normal.

Chicken breasts are dredged in flour, buttermilk, and then flour again, before frying. Dredging the chicken in buttermilk before frying.

The Spicy Slaw

A very easy to make spicy slaw is mixed together to go on the fried chicken sandwich. The slaw has cabbage, hot pepper sauce, garlic, jalapeno, bread and butter pickles and red onions. It’s not too spicy, but it does have a tiny kick to it!

Slaw is mixed to add to the sandwich.

Making The Fried Chicken Sandwich

The fried chicken is placed on a lightly toasted bun which has been spread with a spicy mayonnaise. The fried chicken breast is added, and topped with slaw. Put the top bun on, and you’re ready to enjoy your sandwich!

So I did. End of story. Did you enjoy it? Actually, it was fairly easy, and really tastes GOOD! Seriously good. The sandwich was fairly easy to prepare, and the taste is unexpectedly wonderful!

My husband and I LOVED it and I have prepared this sandwich a few times since then. Hope you will give it a try, because I think you will really like this delicious fried chicken sandwich. You might also want to check out my recipe for a grilled pork tenderloin sandwich, with caramelized onions and mozzarella! Have a GREAT day!

  3. To make chicken: In a small bowl, whisk flour, black pepper and salt. Set aside. In separate shallow bowl, pour buttermilk. Working with 1 piece of chicken at a time, dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Then dip the chicken in the buttermilk, letting excess drip back into bowl. Dredge the chicken again in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Set chicken onto a piece of foil while you coat the remaining chicken pieces.

  4. Pour oil into a large, heavy skillet to a depth of at least ½ inch. Place the deep-fry thermometer into the oil so that the bulb is submerged. Heat over medium heat until the thermometer registers 350°. Carefully place the 4 chicken breasts into hot oil. Fry chicken until golden brown and cooked through (approximately 3-4 minutes per side). When done, remove chicken and transfer to a wire rack. Season with additional salt to taste.

  5. Spread the cut sides of the rolls with butter. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Working in batches, grill rolls, butter-side down, till lightly brown and crisp (about 1 minute).

  6. To "build" sandwich: Spread bottom of the toasted sandwich roll with 1/4 of the spicy mayo. Then add fried chicken breast, followed by 1/4 of the slaw. Top with other half of roll, and enjoy!
