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.
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.
In the 21st century however the trend has changed into an electronic recipe collection. And for those into healthy eating vegetarian or veganism this electronic recipe collection/swap likewise applies to them! Thats right folks the modern day computer tablet iPad or smart phone also serves as massive storage device and means of chatting with the community. Many folks enjoy typing out their favourite recipes these days and store them on their computer or electronic device (rather than printing them). I personally tend to store my recipes on my laptop these days and I take great delight in my electronic recipe collection which is continually expanding! One can find an infinite variety of vegan food recipes online these days ranging from vegan breakfasts lunches dinners main meals light meals snacks cakes desserts drinks gourmet vegan meals and quick and easy vegan recipes.
