Todd Wilbur - Secret Todd Wilbur has been publishing knock-off recipes of some of the most popular restaurant  and processed foods since 1987. I think I have his original book – Top Secret Recipes – but I’ve only made one or two of the recipes.  I haven’t thought about him or his books in years, but I Stumbled Upon the following video which just cracked me up.  I thought I’d share it here because this little girl is just too cute.

Todd’s early books were heavy on sweets and full-fat recipes. In later years he’s added more savory and main dish options and even a complete low-fat book.  It’s nice to see he’s changed as the American diet has evolved as well.
[w8_blockquote icon=”fa-quote-left”]Todd Wilbur is the author of a series of unique cookbooks which reveal simple secret recipes for creating home versions of America’s most popular brand-name foods. The amazing original recipes in each book are the product of research, trial-and-error, creative reverse-engineering, and obsession. Readers will not only be fascinated with the backstories and impressed with the accuracy of the formulas, but will also find that they save money when recreating these signature dishes at home and will enjoy the ability to now customize their favorite foods to suit specific diets and health concerns.

Todd has appeared on numerous talk shows in the 23 years he has been cloning famous foods, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Today Show, Live! with Regis & Kathie Lee, Good Morning America, Fox News, Rachael Ray, Maury, and The Food Network. When not taste-testing recipes on himself, his wife, his friends, and TV talk show hosts, Todd is busy teaching his 2-year-old daughter how to identify herbs in a sauce at their home in Las Vegas, NV.  –
