Plus there are always others that have like interests. It really becomes a win-win for everyone and can spur on even more ideas and experiences from others who are interested. As with anything one has to dip their toes in and get a feel for it of course. I have been trying out some of these imitation restaurant recipes sources and have been truly impressed. I have been learning a lot more than first thought and it has been a lot of fun to top it off. The people who have created these copycat recipes have really done a fantastic job. My quest is to save some money of course but making some of these recipes is also a great way to learn how to cook. Think about it for a second one can actually learn how to cook an appetizer entre or dessert that they know is good at their favorite restaurant and get great results for their effort right out of the gate.
For extra deliciousness you then sprinkle some of your favorite cheese on top. The same goes with dessert recipes. There are so many dessert recipes out there its amazing! Once I thought it would be great to make a low sugar cheesecake. I thought about how to modify a normal cheesecake recipe by convert the sugar into sucralose. It didnt even occur to me to see if someone had already come up with the recipe until after I had made it! Luckily it turned out ok. But when I checked online I discovered a great way of making a carb-less crust for the cheesecake - you can just grind up almonds and then add melted butter to it to make it into a paste that you then spread around the base of your baking pan. It was a great alternative to the normal graham cracker crust. Its ideas like these that you can learn when you read other peoples recipes. Of course there are already plenty of entrees that are low in carbs naturally without any conversion. Although you can find many of these recipes on all sorts of blogs and websites its still better to find them on specialty websites. This is because although a pot roast may seem like it shouldnt contain any carbohydrates or sugars some recipes will add ingredients that do have them. For example cornstarch might be added to a pot roast to thicken the sauce.
Remember earlier I mentioned that 49% of the dollar spent on food is shared in the restaurant industry? That is a lot of dough that one can save! Money or the spending of it is actually how and why I began to take note of these restaurant imitation recipes. I have been reviewing our family spending habits and when looking at groceries vs. dining I was actually pretty shocked. Dining out has become a habit for us and while it is one that we do enjoy it is also one that has been adding up significantly. This is what started that flickering of the old light bulb for myself and my family. I consider myself to be in that DIY group of people on a number of things and while I have come to enjoy doing many things myself (Not all of the time mind you.) I realize the impact of learning how to do something yourself can and has saved me a good amount of money.
