More About the Author
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.

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 [...Read more ›
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.
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.
I am a long time fan of Stephanie Manley's copykat recipes and I love having so many right at hand in the "[...] Dining Out at Home Cookbook". I'd wager that you will like its ease on a busy night!
