What does Homemade mean to you?

From scratch? From a box/bag? Anything made AT home?

  • made at home...cause thats what the word says haha

    i usually think more about the time it takes to make something than if i opened a single can or box. like i may make a box cake, but i spend a lot of time decorating it...homemade. i may use a can of tomatoes in my gumbolya, but its still homemade cause it takes forever.

    now if its hamburger helper or a frozen meal...yeah i dont call that homemade haha

  • Something made from scratch, by someone other than me! :p

  • Generally I say homemade is not from a jar or can. Such as Spaghetti sauce. I won't buy prego or anything but I use canned tomato sauce and canned diced tomatoes and store bought "spices"when I make it and call it "homemade" because I add everything together and cook it in proportions that I like. So I might use things like uncooked pasta etc from the store (cause who has the time to make homemade spaghetti noodles everytime....NOT ME) but it's homemade because I made it at home.LOL

  • To me, homemade implies from scratch.

  • Made completely from scratch. No store bought mixes, sauces, etc. That doesn't mean I don't sometime use those things to save time, just that I don't think it qualifies for "homemade"

  • From scratch....if I'm short of time and use a box or can...I like Sandra Lee's classification of semi-homemade!!
