We received a copy of this cookbook at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
My husband loves to cook and he's really good at it too. He found this Top Secret Recipes cookbook and just had to have it. We were thrilled to find so many of our favorite items from our favorite restaurants broken down into easy to follow recipes in this cookbook. We love bread, and some of our favorites are the Honey Wheat Bread at Outback and the Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster. We don't get to eat out at these restaurants very often, so we don't get to enjoy these breads very often. With these recipes we can make these breads and enjoy them any time we would like.
The ingredients for the recipes are pretty standard and can be used in many other recipes, so we are not buying and wasting ingredients that we will not use again. These recipes were easy to follow and had plenty of pictures to show us what the end result should look like. The Honey Wheat bread and the Cheddar Bay biscuits turned out amazing, and tasted exactly like the originals in the restaurants. We have made both of these items numerous times with great results.
The Top Secret Recipe cookbook is filled with dozens of delicious and easy to follow recipes from every famous and not so famous eatery you could possibly love. The next recipe we want to try is the Orange Julius.
