Copycats are one of my very favorite things because the fast food restaurants we have locally near base aren't the most reliable. Furthermore, when the snow hits, I am not brave enough to go far enough to go get the better fast food. These are the biggest reasons why I love making copycat recipes at home. I find that the quality is better and I rarely mess up my own food, so that's a plus.
