[...] 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 [...

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.

This cookbook is absolutely amazing. I made the fried apples and also the oreo cheesecake recipe and they were both out of this world. They were just as good as the real ones you would order in the restaurant. I would recommend this book to everyone if you would like a good variety of recipies that are made at famous restaurants.
