Do you love dining out but hate how much the cost of doing so can add up? Love that Oreo Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, or that Chicken Marsala from Olive Garden, but don’t want to leave home? Then CopyKat.com’s Dining Out at Home Cookbook is for you.
Even a novice cook can prepare and enjoy the foods in this cookbook, and you won’t break the bank trying to replicate your favorite entrees, desserts, drinks and more.
Some of my favorite recipes that I found in the book include Cracker Barrel’s carrot cake, Boston Market’s sweet potato casserole (which I made for our Christmas dinner), Chili’s Monterrey chicken, TGI Friday’s Nine Layer Dip, and Jack in the Box’s marshmallow Rice Krispie shake. That, my friends, is a feast.
All of these recipes are incredibly simple. I won’t lie, I HATE cooking. I like to bake, but I hate to cook. And none of these are so challenging that I would not want to make it. My family loved the sweet potato casserole at Christmas. It was definitely a success!
The dishes featured in this cookbook would be great for a party, a potluck, or even just a nice family dinner. Plus, since you get to do your own shopping for ingredients, you can control the fat and calories, AND shop for a good deal on the ingredients. You may never want to eat out again!
Dining out at Home Cookbook retails for $14.95 and is available at retailers including Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Borders.
