Togo’s Chili Cheater Recipe

Many years ago, my husband worked for the sandwich chain Togo’s.  Although I’m sure the actual recipe is probably proprietary and locked in some vault somewhere next to KFC’s secret blend of eleven herbs and spices, he has come up with his own Togo’s chili cheater recipe that rivals the real deal.  Good on its … Continue reading

Crazy Bread Cheater – Crazy Good Breadsticks

Ok – this isn’t an exact replica of Little Caesars Crazy Bread, only a close cheat, I admit that willingly. I’ll also readily admit that I am reposting a recipe which I made minor edits to, and found at http://tasteandseegodsgoodness.blogspot.com/2013/05/little-caesars-crazy-bread-at-home.html?m=1 .
