Introducing: The Copycat Club

Introducing: The Copycat Club.

I would like to invite you lovely food bloggers to join my group.
The idea for this group was born out of my fascination with copycat recipes - clones of famous restaurant dishes, coffeeshop bakes or even grocery store products or pre-packaged foods. Reasons to make copycat recipes at home: save money, challenge yourself, impress others and just because IT'S FUN!

This group will be doable no matter what your schedule is. Submit as many or as few copycat recipes as you wish, from past or present blogs. They can be from cookbooks, from websites, from other blogs or from your own imagination. I will post a monthly round-up on the 7th of every month (just because 7 is my lucky number). If you want your post to be included in the round-up on the 7th, send me an Email by the 1st of the month to with the subject "Copycat Club: Recipe Name" and include a link to your post along with your name and blog.

I'm hoping to find more winning clones to try in my own kitchen and to get to know more bloggers along the way. We've still got a few days left this month, so please send me your links and let's get copycat cooking. Here are some recipes to get you started:

America's Most Wanted Recipes by Ron Douglas
Top Secret Recipes by Todd Wilbur
Recipe Secrets
Copy Kat
Recipe Goldmine Clones
CD Kitchen Copycat Recipes

I am working on a badge for the Copycat Club and hope to post that soon. If you have any ideas or suggestions for me plese let me know.

By the way, the removed comment was just me, I screwed up the wording and it was easier to delete. Sorry, lol!

Tia said...
