We all love going out to dinner, but there is nothing like a homemade meal. Apparently we just can't be satisfied. But what if you could replicate your favorite restaurant experience in your own home?
Eating at home, you save money, time and calories. So maybe you want to recreate the whole experience, from bread basket to dessert. Or perhaps you just can't get enough of that one dish from your favorite place. This year is about making your dining room the most popular place to get a Friday night reservation.
Starting in February, twice a month I'll bring you a new popular restaurant, straight from my kitchen. Boyfriend and I will do due diligence and eat at each restaurant, to be sure we have an understanding of the entire restaurant experience.
Here's to another delicious year!
