I'll post recipes here for common things you'd buy at the store...but you can make them yourself for less $$!

Don't be fooled:  some of the things here WILL take some time to make.  Bread doesn't rise in a few seconds...

I'll keep my eyes peeled for one. Currently I only have a hand mixer, so that obviously won't work well. Thanks!

 Rhonda~  If you were going to make a homemade casserole with these, would you cook them first then add or cook with the casserole?

I've got leftover turkey and gravy that I plan to use tonight.  I was thinking of thinning out the gravy some and adding chopped veggies and voila, turkey noodle casserole. *hate for food to go to waste*

Quoting michiganmom116:


Plain Egg Noodle Dough:

  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine

Stir dry ingredients together. Mix in rest of ingredients and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Divide dough into halves or thirds and roll out on lightly floured surface to about 1/8" thick. Cut into desired widths/shapes. Lay on cookie sheets to dry for at least an hour. If not using right away, put into container or resealable plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to use.

I'd cook them first, but only for a few minutes.  They need less time than bagged noodles from the store.

Butter:  put (not homogenized) heavy cream in a quart jar, then tightly cover with the lid.  Shake gently back and forth until you see small flakes of butter forming.  Shake gently for a little longer, then strain the buttermilk off.   The butter flakes should squeeze together into a ball.  Rinse until water rinses off clear, then add a little salt and knead it in.

That's a good question! Actually, whipping cream will work (yes, I was wrong), or un-homogenized milk.
