I have been going to The Red Lobster on Day Drive in Parma Ohio for over 3 years. I went with my mother when they first changed owners. I ordered the lobster bake and they said they didn't serve it anymore however they would serve it one more time to accommodate us. The lobster bake wasn't the same and tasted terrible. The noodles were mushy and the sauce was like water. My husband and I went again two nights ago and the food was terrible. My husband ordered the chicken fettuccini and it was like a jar fettuccini sauce & the chicken was not grilled like it used to be. It was fried. My husband loved that meal and he said it tasted like a frozen entrée from the grocery store and was priced $3 more. Since then I never visited the place and was looking for a replacement. Then I stumbled upon a cook book called America's Restaurant Recipes (bit.ly/2At7cjm) and it has the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Tried cooking it, and the recipe is super on-point. I never went to that ridiculous restaurant ever again.

<a href="http://bp-grafix.net/sitebuilder"target=new><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i185/glittergus/icons/i.gif" border=0></a> I am a proud mother of three healthy boys aged 15,11 and 5. I'm originally from the tiny island of Bermuda and have been living in Edinburgh since July 2005. I've been collecting recipes since I was about 14 or 15 and been cooking and baking since then as well. I love all kinds of crafts also. In my spare time if I'm not in the kitchen; I crochet, make jewelry, bead, knit, sew, cross stitch, do plastic canvas and quilt. I have a short attention span, so I have plenty of different craft choices when I get bored of doing something. Oh, and I also like to read, listen to music, fiddle with any electronic gadget, collect dvd's and watch them, and I'm an internetaholic! :-) I keep a craft blog at http://hobbyzu.blogspot.com and I sell my crocheted items and patterns at http://hobbyzu.com. I keep pretty busy and being self employed gives me more time to explore cooking! :-) I'm mostly interested in cook books featuring regular old home cooking and favorites. When I moved to the UK I had to get rid of my cookbook collection. I did keep all my Bermudian cookbooks, charity cookbooks and 'The Foods of Israel Today' and Better Homes and Gardens 'Hometown Favorites'. <a href="http://bp-grafix.net/sitebuilder"target=new><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i185/glittergus/icons/g5.gif" border=0></a> I am most passionate when it comes to my family and caring for them. Getting to feed them is an added bonus! Lucky for me, my boys are steadily growing pigs with bottomless pits for stomachs! lol :-) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
