What do you make from scratch?

I'm not a cook, actually, I don't like and I really can't cook. I have to use recipes and even then it still doesn't come out quite right. I decided to take on a challenge and made shrimp/veggie tempura for the hell if it, including the dipping sauce. OMG! It came out awesome! Not greasy and not doughy. My boys devoured them.


*EDIT* I am totally impressed and in awe of those of you that can cook and make your own...bacon!!  Here's the recipe I followed for my tempura: http://justonecookbook.com/recipes/shrimp-tempura/.  For me, the batter came out a little thicker than i wanted so for shrimp, I just scraped most of the batter off with my hand and for veggies, I added little more water. I used a wok and a whole bottle of oil!! As I'm typing this, I feel like making it again...

That looks amazing! Can you share your recipe? I cook most dinners from scratch, though I will use canned spaghetti sauce or other similar premade ingredients.
