I'm a big fan of the Top Secret Recipes web site so I grabbed this little book up when it became available on the Goodreads swap. I was not disappointed. So far I've made four dishes, all of them excellent. We tried three clones of P. F. Chang offerings. The sauteed snap beans were delicious but way simple, not very different than the way I usually make them. My wife loved the Orange Peel Chicken (her favorite thing from the restaurant.

A nice collection of popular recipes. While the recipes have a lot of ingredients, most of them are commonly found in the kitchen or are easy to locate.

You can find this currently at Kohls for $5.00. It is an abridged version. It has the Cheddar Bay biscuits from Red Lobster, and Olive Gardens Pasta Fagioli, also Mimi's Carrot Raisin bread. My husband loves that Carrot bread. It will be fun to give the recipes in this book a try.

I LOVE THIS SERIES! I love to cook and I love love love cookbooks! I own a few of them and have checked out several others from the library. I actually used a chili recipe from this one last night. YUM!!!
Connie
Author spends lost of time and effort making dishes that correspond to Olive Garden, Red Lobster, etc. Makes me appreciate the effort the restaurants take to make our food!
Sasha Strader
Excellent selection of recipes! I admit probably my favorites are from the Olive garden section, but they really do taste like what you get at the restaurant!
Lenna
This book would have gotten 5 stars if it had pictures. I can't wait to make Red Lobster's biscuits and Chili's salsa!
