I love the idea of being able to make your favorite foods at home. I often try to re-create my favorite restaurant meals at home. I was very excited when I purchased this book, but the recipes were a bit of a let down. The food was good, but it didn't taste exactly the same as it does in the restaurant. I have found that the recipes are a good starting point, and that once I play with the ingredients, I usually get a good dish. For example, I had to change some of the proportions in the Chicken Saltimboca to get it to taste more similar to the restaurant dish. The other thing that was a bit of a disappointment was that a lot of the recipes seem pretty generic. For example, the Golden Corral roll recipe is a recipe I've seen several times. I was hoping for recipes that represented the restaurants' uniqueness better.

This cookbook brings recipes from popular restaurants to the cooks at home. Ron Douglas says they are under $10, but sometimes that is $10 a serving per person.
For some the introductory sections can be confusing; one is titled Time saving ideas and another Cost-cutting ideas. So in 4 pages you'll be told to go to a butcher and go to a large warehouse to buy meat. To cut costs get a whole chicken and cut it up, but then to save time spend the extra money on bagged prepared salad greens - certainly less time to cut up than a chicken. After reading this some people might not know what to do?
There are some very good recipes in here, including a baked corned beef brisket, good and different from the usual use of briskets for corned beef and cabbage. Probably the 2 most famous recipes included are Outback Steakhouse's bloomin' onion and Pepperidge Farm's Milano cookies.
Included are recipes from A&W, Applebee's, Benihana, Chi-chi's, Chili's, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Macaroni Grill and Sonic Drive-in among others.

These are not the easiest recipes in the world to make, but a cook of average ability could do them. Many are fried or cooked in oil, but they are taste proven and not impossible to make.

At first glance I was very excited about this book, but after reading it more closely, not so much. As someone else has already pointed out, although the recipes claim to be under $10, it's per serving, which is far different. For the seafood recipes, for example, I think I'd rather just pay the extra $5 and eat out! Also, what this cookbook REALLY needs is nutritional information. Many, many of the recipes involve frying or prodigious amounts of fat. Of course, that's why they taste so good, but I'd like to know going in if my under-$10 serving is over-1000 calories. Hopefully he'll add calorie, fat, carb and protein counts to his next book.

All in all, it's a nice addition to my cookbook collection, and it contains enough variety that I'll get some use out of it, but I'm thinking that most of these recipes will be an occasional treat, simply because of the caloric/fat content. If nothing else, reading the ingredient lists has made me decide not to eat a lot of my favorite restaurant dishes!

Got it at the library, and I enjoyed looking through it. The Red Lobster Crab Linguini Alfredo is good. I liked that this recipe made a small amount of Alfredo sauce, so there are no leftovers since Alfredo sauce doesn't reheat well. Some of these recipes called for ingredients that aren't found in most kitchens, such as chili oil, chili garlic paste, and something called sumbal oelek chili paste. Some of you enjoy cooking with unusual ingredients, so this may be fun for you. Although this book was fun, I have to say that I get more "keeper" recipes from Todd Wilbur's books or the Kopykat Dining At Home books. This book is heavy on fried foods, lots of chicken recipes, and Mexican / Southwest cuisine.

Very nice cook book that can be used in an everyday household. So many cook books you have to go and find ingredients at the store to complete the recipe. This cook book isn't that way most everything can be found in your kitchen. I enjoy seeing how close Ron Douglas can capture the true taste of the different recipes in the book. I haven't been to all the restaurants though. Thanks

I've bought several copies of this book to give to friends who love to cook. The first friend I gave it to asked me to order a few more to give to his friends.

Just gave a copy to my bro-in-law who couldn't wait to try the recipes. I'm still waiting for his cooking.

I highly recommend this book.
