Chicken Piccata

My husband loves Chicken Piccata.  He also loves ANYTHING with capers.  I hadn’t fixed it in a little while and the other night, I happened to have everything on hand that was needed.


ALMOST everything.  Usually, the recipe I do calls for white wine.  Since I didn’t have any of that, I used chicken stock.  All that meant was that it would be a good substitute for the wine and my children wouldn’t be walking around bumping into things.  J/K

It is actually a really easy, fast meal.

All you need is a some lemons, capers (which taste like mini olives and can be found right next to them in the grocery store), butter, spaghetti noodles, chicken stock, chicken breast and a little flour.


I guess you could call it a 30 minute  20 minute meal.



If you love lemons and olives, you will love this dish.

Sweet Tea Biscuits


My next entry for “Sweet Tea Week” is none other than a tribute to this sites namesake.  Well part of it.

It’s no secret that I love biscuits.  Hence,  one of my previous blogpost about, you guessed it!  Buttermilk Biscuits.  Here is a link to it in case you missed it before: .  I have already proclaimed this at the top of my lungs and will continue to FOR – E- VER!  (Remember that part in the movie, “The Sandlot”?  Where Squints tells the story and he says,”FOR-E-VER”!) ?????  That is the kind of forever I mean.

Anyway, moving on…..

I wanted to do a biscuit, but REALLY wanted to incorporate Sweet Tea somehow.  I decided to use Paula Deen’s Buttermilk Yeast Biscuits as a base and then I tweaked it.

SO!  This is what I did:

I must say, they turned out pretty nice.

First, I boiled 1 cup water and then added 3 Family Size tea bags. › Continue reading
