Top Secret Recipes Unlocked by Todd Wilbur

For those readers whose New Year's Resolution is to save money this year, Todd Wilbur's new cookbook, Top Secret Recipes Unlocked,  is a godsend.  The cookbook gives the average person the tools to recreate their favorite restaurant offerings at home, allowing them to save money and impress those they are cooking for.

The cookbook is broken down by restaurants.  Some of the restaurants represented include Panera Bread, Boston Market, Burger King, Carnegie Deli, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Outback, KFC, Starbucks, Taco Bell and even Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.  Each recipe is given a page, with a paragraph preceding it that gives any tips that let the chef overcome any challenges.  Many recipes are followed by a section called Tidbits that give further tips and things to consider.  The recipes are clearly written and easy to follow. 

This book is recommended for all readers, especially those who are cooks.  Living in the hometown of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, I'm not sure anyone else can duplicate those heavenly treats, but most of the recipes are well within the expertise of the average person.  Using these recipes is a great way to impress friends invited over for a meal.
