Hi. I was wondering if you had a recipe for Marcos Pizza cheesy bread. I find most cheesy breads do not live up to their name.  
We have found Marcos to be the best we have ate. Thank you so much

Hello Cheryl,

I found the below recipe on a blog.


Cheesy Bread
from Marco's Pizza

1-1/2 pounds pizza dough
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Roll pizza dough out onto a jelly roll pan. Mix garlic powder w/ the melted butter and brush all over the surface of the dough. 
Sprinkle top evenly w/ the grated cheese. Bake at 350ºF. for 20 minutes Cool 10 minutes Cut in half down the center of the pan widthwise. 
Cut into six strips lengthwise on each half. Serve w/ ranch dressing for dipping.

I am looking for the recipe for Panera Bread Co. cinnamon crunch scones. 
Restaurant is located in Fresno, CA.  I have searched the Internet and none 
of the websites that come up actually have the recipe.  Thanks for your 

Hi Julie,

Panera Bread does have cookbook called "The Panera Bread Cookbook: Breadmaking Essentials and Recipes from America's Favorite Bakery-Cafe". However, I found no indication that this recipe is in it. You can get the cookbook at Amazon. Usually it's easier to win the lottery than to find the "actual" recipe for something sold by a currently operating chain restaurant like Panera Bread. Panera Bread is a national chain with dozens of restaurants/bakeries around the country. A search for this recipe resulted in the usual story: The "actual" recipe is not out there. The best you can usually do is a copycat. Don't knock copycats until you've tried them. The cinnamon crunch scones appear to be so new that no one has created a copycat yet, but this appears to be a good copycat recipe for their cinnamon chip scones:

Woolworth's Fried Chicken

I found your site as I was searching for a recipe for the Woolworth's Icebox cheesecake; I'm so glad you have a couple to try. 
My very first job was as a waitress in the Woolworth's luncheonette at Wonderland Mall in San Antonio, Texas (summer of 1977).  
I also loved their fried chicken and asked one of the cooks to show me how to make it.  I don't have exact quantities, but do 
know the ingredients and have made my chicken this way ever since, and thought I would send it to you if you wanted to share it.
Flour, heavily seasoned with garlic powder, black pepper, and salt (our cook said the secret was lots of garlic powder!)
>Bowl of milk beaten with eggs  (what I do at home is approximately 1 egg per cup of milk).
>Dip the chicken piece in the liquid and roll in the seasoned flour, and then dip again in the liquid, roll a second time in the flour mix.
>Deep fry until golden brown and delicious.
This isn't 'official' just based on my memory (and made OFTEN in my house, lol) - I hope it helps!

State Fair Chicken on a Stick

Hey there, Phaed––

It's been a while since I've written; I hope you are well.

I was thinking about the Mississippi State Fair the other day, and 
remembered how my co-workers and I would go down to the fairgrounds to get 
'fair food' for lunch. My daughter was still in elementary school then, and 
when I took her to the fair, she always wanted Penn's chicken on a stick––a 
skewered treat of chicken, dill pickle chips and onions fried with a crispy 

Do you know of any copycat recipes for Penn's chicken on a stick? I've seen 
some recipes online, but they don't resemble what we purchased at the fair. 
Penn's still has restaurants in the Jackson area, but we now live four hours 
away, and I'd love to surprise her with this some weekend.

Do any of your Mississippi connections have such a recipe? Thanks so much!

Your friend in Northeast Arkansas,


Hi Deede,

I had no success locating a recipe or copycat recipe for Penn's chicken on a stick. There are lots of raves about it and some photos of it on the web, but no recipes. It's no big deal to skewer pieces of chicken, dill pickle slices, and onions, batter them , and then deep fry the whole thing, but to make it taste just like Penn's, you'd have to have their batter recipe, which is, according to everything that I saw, a well-kept secret. Sorry.

I lived and worked in Jackson for five years in the 1970s, but I don't recall Penn's. I guess it was confined to Canton back then. I do remember going to the Fair, but I guess I didn't try the chicken on a stick.

There's an article about Mississippi State Fair food here that mentions them:

Jackson Free Press

There's a chicken on a stick recipe on this site, but it has cauliflower and uses tempura batter:
