About the Author

Stephanie Manley is the founder and recipe master at CopyKat.com. Stephanie grew up in rural area, and going out to eat meant a several hour commitment for anything other than a local diner. Learning to copy recipes was done so we could recreate restaurant tasting food at home for her family. She has also spent several years working in a variety of restaurants.

More About the Author

I have been creating recipes on the internet since 1995. For 15 years, I have created recipes that people just like yourself can recreate in their own kitchen. During my college days I worked in a few restaurants, and ever since then I have been recreating your favorite dishes. CopyKat.com has been featured in large publications like the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek Magazine, and Woman's World.

Once I started to recreate restaurant style recipes, I didn't stop. Honestly, when I was in college, and right after, I couldn't afford to go out for dinner every night of the week. I wanted to recreate the taste of my favorite dishes at home. Little did I know that trying the Olive Garden Alfredo sauce would literally be a life changing moment.

For years I was asked when I was going to package up my recipes and make them available in print. So now, these recipes are available for the first time in a book format. I am so excited that I get the opportunity to share my most favorite recipes in print.

Customer Reviews

Look forward to trying more of the recipes.
Katherine R. Moore
The time spent in the kitchen for a few of the recipes will exceed the time it takes to order dinner and eat it in the restaurant.
Kathryn E. Etier
The recipes in this book were easy to follow, and were delicious!

[...] is a website where one can find over 1500 recipes that duplicate famous offerings from popular restaurants (mostly chains), as well as a few from grocery stores and products on grocery store shelves that are better fresh than made from a box. The question some may ask is, "Why would you make Boston Market meatloaf at home when you can just go over to Boston Market and have it?" Good question.

Many people have visited, but do not live near, the Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, or Boston Market (among the many restaurants included in Dining Out at Home). Cravings for Outback's Queensland Chicken and Shrimp or Rainforest Café's Caribou Coconut Chicken (pictured) may not be strong enough to warrant the round trip to a distant restaurant.

No one can promise that the Wendy's Chili copy you make will taste exactly like the chili you get at Wendy's, but then again, it's not made with chopped-up, leftover hamburgers and is, in fact, a whole lot better than the original. Home chefs are not guaranteed restaurant results, but most of the dishes are equal to the originals or close enough to satisfy that T.G.I. Friday's Nine-Layer Dip jones from which one suffers.

The techniques for creating the poser dishes are not difficult, however some of the recipes are complex and require a multitude of ingredients. The time spent in the kitchen for a few of the recipes will exceed the time it takes to order dinner and eat it in the restaurant. However, for those who actually enjoy cooking, there's lots of fun to be had in recreating popular dishes, as well as reinventing them. It's important to remember, though, that [...] Dining Out at Home Cookbook recipes are not the original recipes from the source restaurants, but [...

If you are looking for a recipe book that is easy to read, contains delicious recipes from your favorite restaurants, and can actually help you make choices when eating at these restaurants, this is the book.
The recipe ingredients are easy to find at your local stores. The preparation and cooking instructions are clear and concise.
The names of the restaurants are all listed in the back of the book, and contents and a helpful guide in the front of the book
The author is Stephanie Manley, and she has created a wonderful recipe book, that makes cooking, not only delicious, but fun.

I bought this book mainly for the Cheesecake Factory Crusted Chicken Romano recipe. In the recipes it call's for 2 boneless chicken breasts, and 2 tablespoons shredded Romano. I used way more Romano then the recipe calls for. 1 tablespoon romano for each breast is not enough to coat the chicken. I also tried the Joes Crab Shack drink recipe for Secret Passion Punch,...Although I've never been to a Joe's Crab Shack the same recipe was available in Todd Wilbur's Even More Top Secret Recipes book. The measurement are different in Todd's book and after making them both, The Todd Wilbur recipe tasted better. On a possitive note...The book is done simple and well. Easy to read and work with and it has some great recipes. You just have to be able to figure out the real amounts of ingredients the book calls for because this book is way off. If you are looking for other copycat cook books, I would recommend looking into the Todd Wilbur Top Secret Recipes books.

Stephanie Manley does a great job re-creating popular dishes, drinks, desserts, and more from various restaurants whether fast food or upper scale venues. Most recipes are quite simple thus making it easy to follow and do yourself. I've had the book now for a few weeks and have decided to order a few more as gifts for the cooks in my life. This book is a no-brainer. It's a good-sized paperback, easy to read, and you'll be happy you have it!

If you're a fan of Stephanie Manley's comprehensive recipe site [...], you'll be incredibly happy to have this book on your cookbook shelf. From the luscious coleslaw at Houston's to TGI Friday's famous Jack Daniels sauce to Cracker Barrel's fried apples (ingeniously sauteed in bacon drippings!), Dining Out At Home covers it all. The recipe for Boston Market Mac and Cheese makes this book already pay for itself, in my husband's eyes.

The icon guide makes it simple to determine how much work will be involved in each recipe and gives smart recommendations for tailgating foods, dinners for one, and more. Plus, Stephanie is great about including ingredients that are easy to find in grocery stores across America - a blessing for those who don't live within 20 miles of an H-Mart.

It's always fun to have a night out, but when you're trying to pinch pennies, this cookbook shows you can still have restaurant-quality food without paying the price.
