Recipes, Copycat & Mixes
These are recipes of all sorts that are copycats, knock-offs, substitutes, or mixes for existing products, restaurant offerings, or pantry staples...all essentially recreations of something else. (There are also some "real" recipes contributed by the restaurant/producer/chef who originated the recipe.) Other recipes are found in many other boards, especially "Tips, ___," (for more mixes) and "Recipes, ___"

Video tutorial for Bahama Breeze's Key West Shrimp and Cheesy Grits -- My favorite! The shrimp recipe is not on the page with the other recipes (pinterest.com/...), so measurements are a guess.
