    When author Todd Wilbur asked me if I’d like to review his newest cookbook, Top Secret Recipes Step By Step, I was instantly intrigued. Who hasn’t wondered how to make their favorite restaurant food? After looking through the book and trying out some of the recipes, I can sum this cookbook up in one word: fun. Okay, maybe two words would be better: fun & delicious.Here’s what I liked about the cookbook: Usually if I flip through a recipe bo...

    I love this cookbook! It has many of my favorite restaurants recipes, including the secret recipe for Col. Sanders yummy Kentucky Fried Chicken. I saw that, and others, and my mouth and stomach started having a party!We're big meatloaf people in this household, so when I saw Boston Market's copycat recipe for their 'famous' meatloaf, I knew what I had to try first. It was an easy recipe, which I even made the Hickory Ketchup that went in and on t...

    Love ItI really liked the choices of recipes to clone. Todd included some of my very favorite restaurant items and brand name foods. The ingredient lists are well arranged and the step-by-step instructions and photos are clear and easy to follow.

    A cooks delightExcellent recipes. Directions are easy to follow. Pictures are nice but as a more experienced cook they didn't help me. They might help a novice. My one complaint was a lack of a table of contents. (Did I miss it.)
  • Julie
    Great mix of new recipes and updated recipes. I like the pictures.
  • Brenda
    Great mix of national and regional recipes. Mistrust pantry staples or easily attainable ingredients.

    It was a hard decision for me to make the call on a three star review for this book. I really wanted to like it, but there were some points that just made it impossible to give it the four or five stars that it needed.I made the following recipes out of this book:The Cheesecake Factory Mashed Red Potatoes - quite an addition to the Thanksgiving table I might add. It never fails that whatever I try to do, ends up messed up and I have to half ass s...

    When I was offered this to review I jumped at the chance. Having a husband that loved food and eating out is one of his favourite past times I couldn't wait to try this out on him. This is beautifully presented on high glossy paper and easy steps to follow. I love that the recipes are easy to follow and they have been rated on difficulty to prepare the meals. I found this really useful to choose one that I thought I would be able to achieve. Majo...

    I've used Todd Wilbur's cookbooks before, so I couldn't wait to get hold of this one. There was only one problem...I could barely pry it out of my teenage daughters' hands!! I love that this edition has step by step photography instead of little sketches. A lot of these recipes I would feel totally comfortable turning them over to my daughters to cook as the recipes are so easy to understand and follow.I've seen fairly ridiculous prices for a sma...

    How often do you find yourself at a restaurant and think, "I wish I could make this at home!"? This was a fun cookbook to read through for just that reason. I found several recipes that I hope to make including Pepperidge Farm Milanos, Outback Steakhouse's Honey Wheat Bushman Bread and many others. I've already made the Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole and it was a winner (and I had an entire PAN of it to enjoy!). I'll definitely be looking at ...

    I'd read the earlier books in the series but had never really cared for the drawings that resembled those submitted with patent applications. Using step-by-step photographs was much better. I could see what the final product really looked like. I was amazed at how closely some of the homemade recipes looked like their restaurant version. A good book for those who want to recreate restaurant favorites at home.

    I love looking at cookbooks, and this one was a treat. Wilbur specialized in duplicating famous foods in your home kitchen, from restaurants as well as well known foods. The illustrations are well done and helpful. I tried the fudgsicle recipe and it was just like the ones you can buy. Summer is a great time to try those fun recipes like this, and this will be most helpful. Recommended.

    I have some recipes to be trying.
  • Cindy Kleback
    One definite recipe I'm trying is the Hashbrown Casserole from Cracker Barrel. Yum!
