Well, the description of COPYCAT! RECIPES: The Most Famous Restaurant Dishes at Home, tells you so much about this book that it makes my review an easy one to write.
I needed this book during this past year and a half (2020-2021)! The cravings for some of my favorite restaurant dishes would hit so hard! I’d make something at home, but it just didn’t take away that craving. With COPYCAT! RECIPES, I can get closer than ever to those restaurant meals I want.
Here’s just a sample of the recipes you’ll find between the pages of those cookbook. APPLEBEES: Brunch Quesadillas, French Onion Soup, Triple Chocolate Meltdown, CHEESECAKE FACTORY: Creme Brulee French Toast, Chicken Bellagio, Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake, CRACKER BARREL: Hash Brown Casserole, Beef Stew, Loaded Potato Salad, Ambrosia Fruit Salad, OLIVE GARDEN: Gnocchi Soup, Tucan Chicken- Keto-Friendly, Tiramisu, P.F. CHANGS: Orange Beef Lettuce Wraps, Garlic Noodles, Crab Wontons, Deep & Dark Ganache Cake, PANDA EXPRESS: Spring Roll, Pot Sticker Soup – Slow-Cooked, Orange Chicken, Delicious Fortune Cookies, RED LOBSTER: Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Clam (& Potato) Chowder, Parrot Isle Coconut Shrimp, Triple Berry Sangria, PANERA BREAD: Cinnamon Crunch Bagel, Summer Corn Chowder, Mac & Cheese, Caramel Apple Scones, STARBUCKS: Lemon Bread, Veggie & Hummus Protein Boxes, BOSTON MARKET: Savory Rubbed Roasted Chicken, Creamed Spinach, Boston Cream Cupcakes – Short Cut, and a lot more!
You’ll also find helpful tips, kitchen equipment you may need, and pages of instructions, and information.
I have the Kindle copy and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of photos included. I am one who wants to see what my dish “should” look like.
Overall, COPYCAT! RECIPES is what I was looking for when I saw the title. While I’m a picky eater, it contained enough of my favorites (not necessarily those show above), that it’s a handy cookbook for me to have. I bet you’ll think so too!
NOTE: As much as I love and prefer paper books, I was lucky enough to find (thank you, Kay!) this free on Kindle and snapped it up.
