  • 4-5 days a week, we both work from home so, going out is a real drag...except on the weekends! I also love to cook and bake!

  • almost always. my mom always made homemade meals, so it just feels like something thats supposed to be incorporated in the household. Actually i think families that dont have homemade meals seem kind of weird.

  • Ha daughter has never had hamburger helper either. It's so easy to make something Hamburger helper-esque from scratch. I cook everything from scratch, except I don't make my own pasta and stuff like that. So mostly from scratch. I never cook meals that come out of a box. I do use a lot of frozen vegetables in the winter though, but that's about it.

  • Several times a week. My mother worked and still managed to put homemade meals on the table, I don't know how she did it. So, I think it is something I can do too.

  • Most of the time. Sometimes we eat out, but if we are in I cook from scratch. I do not like most prepackaged foods, I just think it tastes weird. I would rather feed my family a nice healthy home cooked meal. My kids have never had Hamburger I find that kind of funny.

  • Most of the time- I think I use recipes that are ALOT healthier than what I get with prepackaged foods. Don't get me wrong I like some premade foods once in awhile but don't want them to be the majority of what we eat.
