It’s fun to go out to eat with your family. But you don’t always need to get in the car and head to the restaurant to get your kids’ favorite meals. There are plenty of copycat recipes available online so you can make restaurant quality meals, right in your own kitchen — and your kids can help!
In the mood for pizza? Then make homemade Pizza Hut original pan deep dish pizza. Or for dinner, what about making Wendy’s chili or Panera’s mac and cheese? Don’t forget dessert: You might want to bake up a big pan of Cinnabon cinnamon rolls with a Cinnabon copycat recipe or a thick slice of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake.
Chewy, thick dough topped with tomato sauce, your favorite toppings and plenty of mozzarella cheese – that’s the basics behind this homemade Pizza Hut original pan deep dish pizza from Your Home Based Mom.
Instead of calling the pizza delivery guy, make deep dish pizza at home using this recipe. One secret? Make sure the oven is hot when you bake the pizza – preheat to 475 degrees before baking.
Filled with flavor and packed with protein, these replicas are easy and take less than 30 minutes to make. Kids will love how fun they look to eat!
Enjoy the yummy taste of fast food without leaving the house. Warm up the cold nights with a copy cat bowl of Wendy’s Chili (the secret to the sauce is the 3-hour simmer time to let the spices blend).
Dry mustard is the secret ingredient and your kids won’t know the difference between this dish and what they’d get from Panera.
Sometimes, all you need to elevate your go-to meals is an exciting new sauce or dip. Bring the secret Chick-fil-A sauce home and enjoy it with your homemade chicken, potatoes, sandwiches and more! All you need is four basic ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge.
Part of what makes these rolls so good is the frosting, which is made from a combination of cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, lemon, vanilla and just a pinch of salt.
If there’s anyone who has perfected the art of cheesecake, it’s got to be The Factory, right? Enjoy this copy cat, that uses three kinds of nuts in the crust (a nut-less option is also available).
