famous eats

Posted on | October 25, 2011 | 7 Comments

You know those foods that you absolutely love but can only get at a store or a restaurants. It’s the kind of craving that plagues you for days, weeks even and everything else sort of pales in comparison. Once you have a taste for it you have to have it. Well I’ve put together a little collection of recipes for some of my favorite restaurant foods that fall into this category. And who knows, maybe I can recreate some of the magic at home. This would be so fantastic because three of the recipes listed are from eateries that we don’t have in ol’ NYC (see, we don’t have everything here). What about you? Any go-to restaurant cravings?

Sweet Chicky Nuggets from My Name is Snickerdoodle

homemade Wendy’s Frosty from The Motherload (first learned of this concept from my pal Kelly via another pal Erica on pinterest)

Houston’s spinach and artichoke dip from The Frickin Chicken

Rudy’s creamed corn from Bluebonnets and Brownies

homemade York Peppermint Patties from Joyful Abode via Craft

(Almost) Chuy’s creamy jalapeno dip from Tasty Kitchen

Samoa Girl Scout Cookies from Too Much time on my hands

    There are these Cuban empanadas at Havana Central, which has a few locations in the city. I pretty much dream about those empanadas.

    I love Houston’s spin dip, Wendy’s Frosty, Chuy’s creamy jalepeno Dip, and Samoas (aka Carmel Delights in the Midwest). I will definitely try these recipes!

    I’m going to make that Rudy’s corn for Thanksgiving for sure. I made the spinach dip this past weekend for football-watching, and it was SO close to the real thing. Thanks for posting it!
