So our idea is to recreate favorite restaurant dishes at home that are doable for a college student's budget and culinary skill level. The best part is we're also going to film videos tutorials to go along with the recipes, proving that anyone (and I mean anyone) can fix these meals.
I've realized that I spend most of my money going out to eat and at the end of the month I have little to show for it. So why not bring the restaurant to my dining room?
Here's where you come in. What recipes do you have/seen/want to try that are knock-offs or inspired by your favorite dining out establishments? Bonus points if your knock-offs also knock off some cals. See what I did there?
So far I've found:
Pei Wei/ PF Changs - Lettuce wraps
Olive Garden - Chicken gnocchi soup + salad
Outback - Alice Springs Chicken
Disney - Pineapple whip
Starbucks - Frappucino
Keep the ideas coming.
