INTRODUCTION

My grandma used to always say that desserts are actually good for you because they make you happy. With all the stress of everyday life, I guess that’s not too far from the truth.

When I think of the happy times in my life, I realize most of them were celebrated with some kind of dessert. Birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, holidays, job promotions, anniversaries—you name it—there was always dessert, a special treat to cap off a great day and put a smile on everyone’s face.

Well, it’s my hope that this cookbook will help brighten your day and put a smile on your face with the secret recipes from some of the top dessert makers in the country.

My team and I have been reverse-engineering restaurant recipes and publishing them on my website, RecipeSecrets.net, since 2003. What started out as just a hobby has evolved into one of the best-selling cookbook series in America. Since then, we’ve shared our results with over a million curious home cooks just like you.

And after nearly a decade of doing this, the number one question we’re asked over and over is … “Where did you get all those recipes?”

People can’t believe how easy it is to recreate dishes that taste just like you’d experience them at a restaurant.

Our answer is simple: It’s been a collective effort.

I am fortunate to have a great team of contributing chefs at Recipe Secrets.net. I couldn’t do it without the help of Chef Tom Grossmann of ChefTomCooks.com, Chef Todd Mohr of WebCookingClasses.com, and Marygrace Wilfrom (aka Kitchen Witch) of MamasSecretRecipes.com.

And, most important, we would be nowhere without the help of our legion of over 300,000 RecipeSecret.net subscribers, who contribute recipes that they’ve mastered and provide valuable feedback to help us improve our copycat creations.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make the amazing desserts served at your favorite restaurants, you’re going to love this cookbook. Inside you’ll find copycat recipes for hundreds of popular restaurant desserts that you can easily prepare in your own kitchen. Just imagine how impressed and downright amazed your family and friends will be when you tell them you made these desserts yourself. And when you wow your guests with these spectacular desserts, we want to hear about it. Please find us on Facebook or on RecipeSecrets.net and share your experience. That will make all our hard work worthwhile.

Enjoy!
