My big plan for the new year is to stop buying soo much pre-packaged foods. (frozen Pizzas, Chicken Nuggets, Cake Mixes, breads, etc.) With a new Stand Mixer, a new bread maker, and lots of recipes I hope to start making more of my own foods. This Spring we're building a raised garden to be able to grow fruits and veggitables. Hopefully reducing the cost of produce we buy at the store. I was just curious if any of you have already made the switch from buying primarily pre-packaged foods to making a mjority from scratch? If so, did you notice a reduction in your weekly/monthly grocery bill? What are some other benefits that you have noticed?
If you haven't made this switch, are thinking about it, or are curious to know more about it please share .. I'm looking for great recipes for homemade goods if you have any!! That includes sauces, chilis, breads .. everything. THANKS!
