Have you ever wished you could recreate dishes from your favorite (chain) restaurants? Now you can!
I came across the Insider's Recipes Master Edition that has dozens of recipes from eateries like Macaroni Grill, Marie Callendar, Red Lobster and Cinnabon, as well as brand names like Hostess, Kraft and Mrs. Fields--all of the recipes for their most popular items in one giant PDF.
One of my favorite salads of all time is Applebee's oriental chicken salad, so I was wicked excited to see the recipe in the master edition. I put it to the test and here's how it came out:
It wasn't exactly like the real thing, but it was a close imitation. It's easy and fairly healthy (minus the corn-flake fried chicken and mayonnaise in the dressing--but hey, it's a salad). If you like a honey-mustard dressing, you'll like this dish.
It's the only recipe I've tried in the book, but would like to try more. Like Pepperidge Farms milano cookies. Or Outback's blooming onion. Or Girl Scout samoa cookies. Yum...
