  • I do make some thing home made. I can ONLY have chocolate chip cookies home made now though. They are so easy to make and taste so much better. Though by time I am done making the cookies, I usually don't want any. I eat too much of the batter. :P

  • It goes back and forth from homemade, half homemade and just plain box dinner. :-)
    Any soups or something like that I have to do from scratch on my own. I can't stand canned/jarred sauce, or soup.

  • I have so many allergies, and my kids are following suit. I make a lot home made. Anything processed and packaged is a rare ocassion. But we eat a larege amount of fruits and veggies. I make a lot of thrown together stir fry concoctions.

  • I only make homemade mashed potatoes as well and I have to make cakes homemade. Since I learned how to do that, the box stuff just isn't the same to me anymore lol.

  • I do things as homemade as I can. I feel like I can only really take credit for "good cooking" when I do it myself and not from a box.

    My absolute MUST do from scratch things are pancakes, cookies, basically anything baked. Cheese sauce, meatloaf, pasta sauce etc..

  • Homemade. I don't see the point in spending more money for things that taste worse.

  • Aside from pasta and bread, I make pretty much everything from scratch. Two things I just can't handle from a box are pie crust and mashed potatoes. Just not the same.

  • I do as much as I can homemade. This morning I am making homemade brownies to have for dessert. We usually make homemade cookies, I love homemade bread (though I do still buy sandwich bread for the convenience), I make homemade chicken noodle soup, all of our dinners are homemade, and most of our breakfasts are homemade. I only make homemade pancakes and waffles (the frozen and mixes just don't taste as good), and I always make mashed potatoes homemade, the boxed stuff just doesn't cut it in my house lol. Oh and homemade hamburger helper. I refuse to feed my kids the boxed hamburger helper (or any boxed meal for that matter) because of all the stuff added into it. I LOVE cooking though, so I don't have an issue doing homemade/semi homemade.
