My guys are very susceptible to advertising. They've seen the new Papa John's commercials advertising the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie and they asked if I could make one. I don't have an oven proof skillet or pizza pan, so I scoured the web for one I could do in a cake pan. I found this recipe on That's So Yummy and it was perfect since I only had 1 egg.
This is a great fix for a chocolate chip cookie craving without making a huge batch, scooping dough and then babysitting cookie sheets!
Absolutely no changes to the recipe. Well, that's not exactly true, it said to let it cool for 4 hours and we just couldn't wait that long!

There are days in September that even though the calendar says it's fall, the thermometer screams summer! This recipe is perfect for those days. Very little prep, very little grilling time. . I made a lot of little modifications. I don't do cilantro, so I used parsley. Someone drank the last of the OJ, so I used apple cider instead. Due to nut allergies, I don't keep walnuts in the house, so I used sunflower seeds instead. Pumpkin seeds would be awesome too! I omitted the cheese. You really just can't go wrong with this one. For a more filling dish, use the same dressing on chicken and grill it too. Thank you so much to Paul S. for the recipe!
I just am amazed with all the great dishes the others have come up with
this week, I thought I had a great collection of apple recipes going,
but I'm adding to it like crazy! Don't forget about enterin…
Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else. We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend. It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken.
I chose this recipe, and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder. Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead. I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it.
I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it. Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork. There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper. I like spic…
