I saw a video online, "How to clone a twinkie" and I thought it was not only informative, but very funny. I went to his website, and found out that he had cookbooks. It has AMAZING recipes and high quality results.

This is an interesting book filled with popular fast food recipes, such as KFC chicken and cole slaw, Twinkies, Dairy Queen's Blizzard, the Big Mac, Mounds & Almond Joy, Snickers, & Long John Silver's batter-dipped fish. I found it eye-opening to see what was in some of my favorite take out foods, but I don't feel the need to make any of them myself. After all, if I want a Snickers, it's a lot easier to buy one for .60 than to make one. Still, if you're wondering "how do they make that", the diagrams and recipes are worth a read. Don't be surprised though if you find yourself not wanting to eat as much of some of these take-out favorites after you see how bad they are for you.
