What is your definition of homemade?

Just wondering what do you consider homemade?

Anything you make AT home?

Or does it have to use 100% fresh ingredients?

Or somewhere in between????

Homemade means mixing bowls, recipe books/cards, and lots of ingredients.

In my mind, homemade is everything fresh. No short cuts.

To me homemade means putting the ingredient proportions in myself. For instance when i make lasagne i use store bought ricotta, sauce and noodles. I still consider it homemade.

I'm not going to churn my own butter ;-)

Anything that I cook in my home :-) I do admit that women who take the time to make food without any prepackaged ingredients make better food than me!

Last nights dinner, the only canned item was pineapple because we didn't have fresh to use. Oh, and the long grain rice came from a bag. Otherwise the sweet and sour pork was homemade.
I also love Sandra Lee's semi homemade. We work long hours and can't always do fresh from scratch homemade.

Do you grind your own flour? Make your own cheese & butter?

Okay here's my opinion:

Frozen pancakes are not homemade.
Homemade pancake are from scratch. From a box doesn't count.

However homemade chili doesn't have to have 100% fresh veggies. In my opinion you can use canned tomatoes (espicailly during the winter months).

A chicken pot pie is still homemade if you use a pie crust from the box.
