Copycat recipes are a great idea. You can save money and dine at a different "restaurant" every night. Or mix and match them. The copycat Starbucks recipes for drinks would go over really well in my house, as would the Gooey Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake. The Saucy Mongolian Beef Recipe sounds scrumptous. Must make some of these soon!

All the recipes look great cant wait to try them,espeally the pot roast
