With Plus Together With As Well As
Have you ever tried to make something just like your favorite restaurant and while it turned out ok it just didnt quite taste the same as what TGIF or Olive Garden serves? I know I have and it seemed like all the effort was fine but the result on a scale of 1 to 10 was maybe a 6 at best. To get a 9 or 10 just seems impossible and you are better off giving up and just go to the restaurant instead. Well guess what? As there is with anything worth while there are those few people who do try to imitate these restaurant recipes to the Nth degree. You could almost refer to them as recipe hackers. They can be moms dads or professionals and no matter who these people have a goal and will put in the time and effort to break a recipe down.
I dont know about you but I get a great sense of accomplishment when taking time to learn something and it works out. Should you get the urge to try these imitation or secret recipes of the restaurants I think you will be more than pleasantly surprised. I know I have been. If you want to save some money learn how to cook or simply to get a hold of one of your favorite restaurant recipes you wont regret it. I have not tried any of the "700 FREE restaurant recipes" type of sources online. They may be alright too however it has been my experience that if something is really worth while there should be some cost associated for the effort of making it available.
The reality is that Red Velvet Cake is and has always been a chocolate cake. How can you bake a chocolate cake without using cocoa? Again how do you decide which recipe to expend your time energy and money on? I stay far away from food sites that offer member comments and reviews as some of the reviews are of no help and actually add to confusion. A few years ago I did an online recipe search for Turkey Mulligatawny Soup. I landed on a well revered food forum. This site also allows for member comments. I was shocked to see some of the comments made about this recipe. People who didnt have the spices called for in the recipe chose to cook the soup leaving them out.
