    Stephanie Manley does a great job re-creating popular dishes, drinks, desserts, and more from various restaurants whether fast food or upper scale venues. Most recipes are quite simple thus making it easy to follow and do yourself. I’ve had the book now for a few weeks and have decided to order a few more as gifts for the cooks in my life. This book is a no-brainer. It’s a good-sized paperback, easy to read, and you’ll be happy you have it!

    If you are looking for a recipe book that is easy to read, contains delicious recipes from your favorite restaurants, and can actually help you make choices when eating at these restaurants, this is the book.

    The recipe ingredients are easy to find at your local stores. The preparation and cooking instructions are clear and concise.

    The names of the restaurants are all listed in the back of the book, and contents and a helpful guide in the front of the book

    The author is Stephanie Manley, and she has created a wonderful recipe book, that makes cooking, not only delicious, but fun.

    If you’re a fan of Stephanie Manley’s comprehensive recipe site […], you’ll be incredibly happy to have this book on your cookbook shelf. From the luscious coleslaw at Houston’s to TGI Friday’s famous Jack Daniels sauce to Cracker Barrel’s fried apples (ingeniously sauteed in bacon drippings!), Dining Out At Home covers it all. The recipe for Boston Market Mac and Cheese makes this book already pay for itself, in my husband’s eyes.

    The icon guide makes it simple to determine how much work will be involved in each recipe and gives smart recommendations for tailgating foods, dinners for one, and more. Plus, Stephanie is great about including ingredients that are easy to find in grocery stores across America – a blessing for those who don’t live within 20 miles of an H-Mart.

    It’s always fun to have a night out, but when you’re trying to pinch pennies, this cookbook shows you can still have restaurant-quality food without paying the price.

    Great recipes! They’re impressive without being difficult or requiring a ton of odd ingredients. I’m looking forward to trying a lot of them – the Boston Market spinach and Cracker Barrel Coca-Cola cake are first on the list!

    […] is a website where one can find over 1500 recipes that duplicate famous offerings from popular restaurants (mostly chains), as well as a few from grocery stores and products on grocery store shelves that are better fresh than made from a box. The question some may ask is, “Why would you make Boston Market meatloaf at home when you can just go over to Boston Market and have it?” Good question.

    Many people have visited, but do not live near, the Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, or Boston Market (among the many restaurants included in Dining Out at Home). Cravings for Outback’s Queensland Chicken and Shrimp or Rainforest Café’s Caribou Coconut Chicken (pictured) may not be strong enough to warrant the round trip to a distant restaurant.

    No one can promise that the Wendy’s Chili copy you make will taste exactly like the chili you get at Wendy’s, but then again, it’s not made with chopped-up, leftover hamburgers and is, in fact, a whole lot better than the original. Home chefs are not guaranteed restaurant results, but most of the dishes are equal to the originals or close enough to satisfy that T.G.I. Friday’s Nine-Layer Dip jones from which one suffers.

    The techniques for creating the poser dishes are not difficult, however some of the recipes are complex and require a multitude of ingredients. The time spent in the kitchen for a few of the recipes will exceed the time it takes to order dinner and eat it in the restaurant. However, for those who actually enjoy cooking, there’s lots of fun to be had in recreating popular dishes, as well as reinventing them. It’s important to remember, though, that […] Dining Out at Home Cookbook recipes are not the original recipes from the source restaurants, but […] version of those recipes. “No sponsorship or endorsement by, or affiliation with, the trademark owners is claimed or suggested by the author or publisher.”

    Recipes for dips, desserts, entrees, drinks, salads, and side orders are included in this collection. In addition to the restaurants already mentioned, others inspiring recipes are Jack in the Box, Red Lobster, The Cheesecake Factory, Chili’s, IHOP, Brennan’s, Hooters, Cinnabon, and many others.
