Restaurant Copy Cat Recipes
One of my favorite things to do is recreate restaurant favorites. I love the challenge, and also the fact that I can stay home in my PJs and eat my favorites without leaving the house.
Not to mention, they taste better and you know what’s in them! You can even make the choice to lighten them up a bit if you want.
