i've been cooking more and more from scratch. i have found a great bread recipe. and a lot of recipes from DH grandma that are like foundation things that can be used for many other recipes. i would like to learn to make hamburger buns and hotdog buns.

my dh's grandma says all you need to make a meal is water and flour. lol.

Yep, I sure try to make a lot from scratch. It's not always convenient but it's so much healthier and cheaper!

The first time my son had a cake in this house from a box he was in high school.  I always cooked from scratch, even the pancakes I fixed on Saturday mornings.  I did buy bread though for every day use.  I didn't have a bread machine back then and I worked full time so it was easier.

I rarely bake anymore, but I do cook our meals from scratch.  They just taste better, and I can control things like salt content.

 I LOVE to cook from scratch, at least you know what is in it when you do.  I have psoriasis and don't want fake sugars, trans fats, etc in my diet so it ensures when I make it myself that they wont be there.  I really got into it after reading Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series because her mom was always baking cakes etc,-- we had always made our own stuffing and stuff and it got me into making our own cakes and frostings :)

I cook most things from scratch. All meals are from scratch and most everything I bake as well. I wish I had a bread machine though because we go through ALOT of bread...I know how to bake dessert breads but not sandwich breads!

I don't cook everything from scratch. But I've actually been cooking from scratch more and more lately. I prefer it if I have the time. It just always tastes better plus it makes it easier to keep track of what you're actually consuming.
