Just why are you looking for Secret Copycat Recipes? I bet I know....
Have you frequented a restaurant and come away from it asking: "just how do they make those
dishes?" I'm sure you sat there trying to uncover just what has gone into the dish, what sort of ingredients
they're using.. Maybe you have even tried to ask the waiter or the chef for the recipe it
was so good! Chances are they didn't give you the recipe, and probably for good reason, if
they did give it out to every person who asked for it, they could soon be out of business.
Knowing how much you crave that dish, you try to cook it yourself. Maybe you had some success, but chances are good that you were now where close to making a match. The solution to this problem you face is to use what are called copycat
restaurant recipes. They are specially researched and reverse engineered dishes like

Cooking - Kitchen - Recipe Tips...
* Rescue stale or soggy chips and crackers: Preheat the
300F. Spread the chips or crackers in a single layer on a
baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool,
then seal in a plastic bag or container.
Low Fat Cooking:
* Get into the habit of measuring the oil you use while you
rather than just pouring it out of the bottle. It will be
easier to moderate the amount you use.
* Use non-stick cookware so that you don't have to use
if any, fat. When sauteing, use a small amount of chicken
or wine instead of butter or oil.
* To make fat-free broth, chill your meat or chicken
fat will rise to the top, and you can remove it before
* Many vegetables and fruits, including potatoes and
retain many of their nutrients in their skin. So when
leave the skin on your fruits and vegetables and cook them
* Romaine lettuce is loaded with vitamins compared to
It has three times as much Vitamin C and six times as much
* Vitamin C is destroyed quickly in cooking - so cook
vegetables with Vitamin C in the smallest amount of water
possible and for a short amount of time.
* Stock up on spices. One of the keys to cooking low-fat
getting bored is to spice your food well. When you have
your recipe, always taste it and adjust the spices to meet
* Purchase the best (i.e. heaviest) set of non-stick
* When cooking a dish with both vegetables and meat
(i.e. in stir frys
and stews), reduce the amount of meat by 1/3 and increase
of vegetables by 1/3. You will hardly notice!
* Thicken gravies with milk or broth blended in the
flour. Be sure to cook long enough to remove the raw flour
You'll never notice the lack of fat.
* Use olive oil for cooking when appropriate. It adds to
of the dish and is better for you.
