I have never been much of a baker, but now I am trying my hand at it since I am now a SAHM.  My first Question is if a recipe calls for all purpose flour can I use self rising and leave out the baking soda and salt?  I am tryin to lower our grocery bill and the Hubs loves his snacks and I was goin to try to do homemade instead of store bought and was wanting some tips thanks.  any help would be grateful.

No. You need the salt and baking soda to have the correct reaction Witt he ingredients. I have a degree in baking and pastry and if you wanna send me the recipie I can maybe give you some subs that will save you money

Why not just buy all purpose flour? I bake weekly and never use self rising flour.
