There are a lot of recipes on the web that are supposed to replicate dishes served in restaurants. There are also recipes for grocery store products such as Ritz crackers, Bisquick and sweetened condensed milk to name a few.
As someone who loves to cook, I like to think homemade is better than store bought. However, I'm wondering if recipes for grocery store products are any good and, more importantly, are they worth the time and effort. Has anyone ever made any copycat grocery store recipes? If so, were they as good as the original? Would you make them again?
