6. Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

A list of copycat recipes wouldn’t be complete without Red Lobster’s famous biscuits. There are a lot of copycats out there, but Food.com‘s recipe is the best. What makes it different? Cold butter.

Stop lingering around the Cinnabon shop at the mall because you can’t get enough of that cinnamon-sugar aroma. You can recreate the same sweet scent and flavor in your own home with Jo Cook’s recipe.

Some favor Costa Vida’s sweet pork, but I’m partial to Cafe Rio’s recipe—and thanks to Creme de la Crumb, I can enjoy the sweet and spicy goodness of it at home!

9. Starbucks Lemon Loaf

Delightful E Made’s (via Lil’ Luna) lemon loaf recipe claims to be better than Starbucks’. Try it here and see for yourself! (It’s pretty darn close, if you ask me.)

Let’s be real here, the only reason why we all crave Olive Garden is because of the salad and breadsticks. Am I right?! If I’m correct, then you’ll appreciate this salad dressing and this bonus breadstick recipe—they’re the best I’ve tried!
