We've all fallen victim to culinary laziness after a long, hard day. It takes close to no effort to pop open a sack of chips, rip open a wrapped Hostess cupcake or make a quick stop for a greasy bagged burger at the drive-thru.
But convenience need not trump taste. Food can be so much more enjoyable when made at home -- thanks, in part, to freshness and less-processed ingredients. So, we're particularly excited by copycat recipes that let us have the best of both worlds: delicious indulgences made and enjoyed in the comfort of our own homes. We put together some of our top picks for homemade alternatives -- including Hostess' snack cakes, Cinnabons and McDonald's Big Mac -- that taste way, way better than the original.
