I tried to do everything from scratch but when im in a hurry i used can/box food and doctor it up. 

Here are some of mine:

Spaghetti sauce, I add tons of seasonings, and usually chunks of onion/bell pepper.

Boxed brownie mix, I add cocoa powder, and then chocolate chips.

Pancake mix, I add cinnamon.


What are some of yours?

I take boxed macaroni (like Velveta...not powder ones), make it, then put it in a pan with brocoli and cooked chicken or ham, sprinkle it with shredded cheese and stick it in the oven.

I normally just make it from scratch. We have been trying not to eat anything from a box anymore.

I doctor up pretty much anything that comes from a box or a can. Even if it's just to add a dash of salt, everything seems to need a little something to make it taste better.

hamburger helper, I add bell peper, onion, sometimes tomatoes, and cook it out, then put cheese on the top and bake it off, taste yummy!

KD, we love to add hotdogs.

Thats about the only 2 things we eat from a box lol and its rare.

Pancake mix. I add sprinkles, food coloring, fresh fruit, vanilla and cinnamon. My little guy loves pancakes so I get creative. Beans. I can turn a can of beans into pretty much anything.
