I am looking for the buttermilk biscuit recipe from Clifton's in the Lakewood and Brookdale locations ...family favorites from my childhood, well into the days of my own kids! 
They had a taste and texture like none I've  had since!  Hope you can find it!

Square Tea Cakes

Hi, I just found your wonderful website and was so glad. I have been looking for a particular recipe for over a decade. The mother of a man I used to date made what she
called tea cakes. But it was not a cookie. It was a batter that she quickly mixed up in one bowl and poured in a large, shallow pan. Maybe it was a jelly roll pan. 
Once it was baked, she cut it into squares while it was still warm. They were soft and sweet and slightly chewy and thin. Any ideas?

Thank you,
Stephanie

Hello Stephanie,

Thatís not much to go on, but below are a couple of possibilities.

English Tea Cakes

1 cake or pkg. dry yeast (or compressed)
1/2 c. scalded milk
1/4 c. shortening
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg or 2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. sifted flour

Soften yeast in milk (lukewarm).  Add shortening, sugar, egg, salt and enough flour to make a rather stiff drop batter.  Beat until smooth.  Let rise until doubled.  
Stir down and pour into greased 8 x 8 x 2 pan, filling pan 1/2 full.  Mix topping which consists of 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 cup chopped nuts, 
sprinkle over batter.  Let rise until puffy and doubled.  Bake in hot 400 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes.  Makes 1 tea cake.  Cut in squares and serve with tea.

Thank you for responding to me. I appreciate it very much. I know her recipe did not contain yeast. The second recipe sounds very similar to what I remember watching her do. 
I neglected to tell you I am from South Mississippi in a very rural area so it would be a simple, country-folk recipe. I am going to try the second recipe that you sent. 
Hope you have a good day.

I love this site, thank you for having it.

I have been looking for the Quizno's raspberry chipotle dressing recipe for several years. I have found a few on line but they never taste like the one 
Quizno's uses. Could you help me with the real thing?

Thank you

Peggy 

Hi Peggy,

Finding a recipe like that one is extremely difficult. Since Quizno's is a large chain, the dressing is most likely not made in the restaurant. It's most probably made by an outside vendor or at a central Quizno's facility somewhere. Either way, only people who work at that vendor or at that central Quizno's facility would know how it's made. It would be made in large quantities, bottled or packaged and maybe frozen, and then shipped to the local Quizno's restaurants. This reduces the number of people who would know the real recipe to a very few, and those few wouldn't give it out. I had no success finding a recipe that claimed to be Quizno's own, so you are probably going to have to settle for a copycat. You said you'd tried some and they weren't right, but you didn't say which ones you'd tried.
The ones that I could find are these:
