I bought both volume 1 and 2 of this cookbook along with a few others in a package deal directly from The author's website. I regret wasting my money.

Many of the recipes look good and the recipes I've tried tasted ok for the most part. But none have tasted very much like the original. But the books are advertised as allowing you to make recipes that taste just like the originals and after reading the recipes you'll see that this just isn't possible with many of them. The problem is that they are just too vague. For example: The recipe for the, "Whopper" hamburger leaves out a very important step and that is how thick to make the beef patty or even the fat content. Why is that important? Because The thickness of the burger and the amount of fat in the meat directly affects how the entire sandwich tastes. If you just guess at the fat content and make the patty sized to fit whatever size bun you have then it definitely will not taste the same. The same goes for his Big Mac recipe. He doesn't give you any details for the hamburger patties other than you need 2 of them and they should be 100% beef. Well DUH! But one of the keys to making the Big Mac taste like a Big Mac is that the patties have to be a certain size and thickness. You may end up with a sandwich that you like as much as or better than the original Big Mac but you will NOT end up with one that fools anyone.

The Olive Garden Lasagna is another example of a recipe that is lacking in instructions. It calls for 12 lasagna noodles. Ok. Now what? The next step is to start layering them with the other ingredients. Are the noodles supposed to be boiled first?

I was curious about this cookbook, so I got in touch with the author - Ron Douglas. He began putting together his collection with a web site RecipeSecrets.com and then self published this book and a follow up.

After talking with Ron, I got his books. They are really great. There are recipes to make things like Boston Market Macaroni and Cheese, KFC Honey BBQ wings, and Applebee's Baby Back Ribs. These recipes are developed and then tested out on the web site, so they are very close to the real thing.

The recipe book is small and has around 100 restaurant recipes. There aren't any photos, but these are dishes most people would know from eating out.

I've been enjoying making some of my favorite dishes from restaurants. I showed the cookbook to my Mom, and she wants to try out some dishes too. Many of them are Southern favorites. I asked Ron about that. He is from New York. His Grandma grew up in the South, so that's how he came to especially like Southern cooking.
