Copycats

November 17, 2017

I love to find a dish or dessert that I love so much I want to copy the recipe.  Shana and I use to go to late night happy hour at Coho in Issaquah, WA.  I remember when we had Hula Hula Chicken.  I kept tasting it saying to Shana, "what is that spice or flavor". Well, finally I asked the waitress, told her I like to try to make restaurant recipes at home.  You know what, she asked the chef.  He said he could not tell me the exact measurements but she handed me a list of ingredients!!

I think I made it a few times that summer.  One of my coworkers at Virginia Mason asked me to make the cranberry bliss bars that Starbucks sells during the holidays.  She handed me a recipe and said, "if anyone can do this Sally, I bet you can!"  I made them so much that Christmas, everyone enjoyed them.  I even made them for my daughter's Christmas work party.

Well, here we are with the holidays approaching and Stephanie ask me if I could bring them to Aunt Diane's thanksgiving dinner.  I haven't made them for a couple years, so I found a recipe on RecipeGirl which looks similar.  I am doing a practice run today, the wonderful staff at The Element are my tasters, and then I will tweak it and make if for Thanksgiving day.

 Recipe and pictures to follow :)

 

 

 

 

 This is one of the only things I have from my mom, this frosting spatula.  I love it!  I'm having trouble downloading the recipe.  I got it from RecipeGirl if you want to look it up.  They turned out so good!
