Spinoff: When was the last time you cooked something from scratch?

Mine was last week when I made bourbon chicken. This week I am making Chicken Marsala of scratch.

  • I started our dinner this morning - broccoli soup. And the bread from yesterday is from scratch as well. But I'm kind of crazy that way.

  • Haha, I cook from scratch all the time. We've been lazy the last week, though. I bake more than I cook - last week I made a chocolate pound cake, plus this other chocolate cake thing when I ended up not having enough flour to make my dough thick enough for cookies ;) (haven't baked in a week because I ran out of flour and sugar, and DH just brought home more today). I do a lot of freezer and crock pot cooking, where I make burritos (the filling anyway, I'll admit to buying the tortillas, lol) or chicken recipes, etc, from scratch and freeze for later. But baking is my favorite. I'm always making cookies, cakes, brownies, etc, from recipes, instead of buying boxed mixes and things.

  • ^^^LOL okmanders- now who would do that?! Not this mama! I did make my own spaghetti sauce once- but that was a long time ago. My husb is the one who watches cooking shows & cooks up the yummy stuff! :p  I'm all about quick & easy :0

  • Friday I made matzo ball soup, goulash and rice with lentils.
    Yesterday I made homemade pizzas, but technically, they weren't made from scratch because I haven't made pizza dough since passover and had to use pita bread.
