Amazing...

I have the most exciting thing to share with everyone and it's one of those I could poddy in my underwear sort of events. I just hope everyone else is excited as I am.

Today, I received at work, an e-mail containing a PDF file of a recipe book called "Insider's Recipes Master Edition". Friends...this book contains the recipe for things such as Arby's Horsey Sauce, Auntie Ann's Pretzels, KFC Baked Beans, and McDonald's Big Mac Sauce and those are just the tip of the iceberg. Now I don't know how close to the actual recipe these are but here is my plan to find out. Every Sunday for the next several weeks I am going to select what I feel is a very popular dish/sauce/soup from this book and test it out just to see how close they really are to the real thing and whether or not I like the homemade version better. Since I can't list the entire table of contents, shoot me an e-mail if you are looking for a recipe and I will see if it is included. I will try it out and report back!

I can't wait to get started, I think this is going to be very interesting!!

It sounds great! And you are so nice to share them with us too! Of course, the chances are that most of the stuff will be unknown for me, but still... homemade copycat recipes (which means good stuff minus preservatives AND cheaper than the actual product)? Fantastic idea!
