Copycat Favorites Recipe Contest
Copycat recipes—they allow for all the deliciousness of dining out but from the comfort of your own kitchen. We call that a win-win! If you’ve mastered your favorite fast food restaurant’s waffle fries and dipping sauce, we wanna try! Your oh-so-tender take on that regional chain’s dinner rolls is seriously tempting us. And your homemade version of a beloved store-bought breakfast pastry sounds mighty yummy, too. Send us your brilliant renditions of restaurant menu items with 12 ingredients or fewer, and you just might see yourself here!
