Forget take-out, with TOP SECRET RECIPES STEP-BY-STEP, Todd Wilbur shows how even the most novice cook can recreate famous fast food favorites with everyday ingredients.
My husband and I are both foodies and eat out at least once per week. On top of that…we eat very little processed foods at home. We love to cook and bake from scratch, and enjoy spending time with one another in the kitchen.
Top Secret Recipes Step-By-Step is a fantastic cookbook! Every recipe includes step-by-step preparation photos and a photo of the finished product. All ingredients and techniques used are laid out nicely and everything is in an easy-to-read format. I love that the author gives you the prep time and grades each recipe from easy to difficult.
One of our favorite things at Red Lobster is their Cheddar Bay Biscuits and there is a recipe in the book for that! After reading the recipe…I now realize how simple they are to make at home and will definitely be making them during the holidays. If you’ve ever dined at the Pancake House and loved their Dutch Baby Pancakes well guess what? The recipe is in this book and they are super easy to make!
From cover-to-cover this cookbook is loaded with all of your favorite recipes from various restaurants, coffee shops and cafes. I am super stoked that as a foodie I finally have one of Todd Wilbur’s cookbooks in my collection!
The holidays are here and now is the time to grab a copy of Top Secret Recipes Step-by-Step: Secret Formulas with Photos for Duplicating Your Favorite Famous Foods at Home for yourself and another copy of the book to give as a gift. You can purchase it directly from Amazon!
