Copycat Cooking Summary
We don’t eat out a lot at our house, but we have a few favorites—and when I saw them listed in the Table of Contents for Copycat Cooking, I knew we needed to do some experimenting. First up for us was Olive Garden’s Chicken Parmesan, and Panda Express Orange Chicken and their Chow Mein (because someone in our house ALWAYS orders at least one of those) are on the menu for next week.
One of the things I love about Six Sisters’ Stuff is that none of their recipes is ever overly complicated. I can always count on being able to create something tasty without spending all day in the kitchen, and this cookbook is no exception. Even less-experienced cooks will be able to easily follow these recipes. One of the other things I love is that their ingredients are always readily available. While I love to experiment and try different cuisines, most days I appreciate not having to go to six different stores to find an unusual ingredient for dinner that I’m not likely to use again before it goes bad.
Our Chicken Parmesan turned out great, though my resident food critics were quick to point out one small “glitch?” in the recipe. It didn’t include any Parmesan cheese. Since Parmesan cheese is a staple food at our house (and we’re not talking about the kind in the can), it was a simple matter to add a ¼ cup of fresh-grated Parmesan to our bread crumbs. Other than that, we followed the recipe exactly and it was voted a keeper by the food critics. In fact, they liked in better than my usual Parmesan chicken, so it’s a win for Copycat Cooking.
Copycat Cooking with Six Sisters’ Stuff: 100+ Restaurant Meals You Can Make at Home is available in Kindle and Paperback (always my favorite in a cookbook) from Amazon.com. It’s also available from DeseretBook.com.
