Default Do you cook from scratch?

I try to cook everything from scratch. If I can. There are a couple things I will get that aren't home made. For the most part though everything is home made.

It tastes so much better!

I totally agree! Now that I am at home with my son, I take the time to cook everything from scratch. No more gross cream of whatever soups ! It really does taste better, and I feel better about what my family is eating.

Not only do I cook from scratch, I try to grow what I cook (well, veggies anyway)

Ive been watching the cooking videos on swagbucks and its taught me SO much. First thing I did was buy my first set of SHARP knives.
Have no idea how I got along without them!

Then I bought a pasta machine and made my very first homemade pasta (its FUN) Also tastes so much better! Especially in homemade soup

Dang.... now Im hungry, hehe

Oh, yes! We grow veggies in our garden every summer too. Nothing better than a home grown tomato! Yum!

I cook from scratch as much and as often as I can. Not just for taste, but I just feel it is so much more fun and I like knowing what I am eating. I tried growing my own veggies last year, but failed. This is a new year though, so maybe I will give it another shot!

We usually cook from scratch and had a nice garden. We moved though so we don't have any room for a garden now. I still like getting fresh fruits and vegetables.

i agree... cooking from scratch does taste much better... only problem is that you need to keep HEAPS of herbs and spices on hand...

My step-daughter once looked in the fridge and said, "There's no food here, only ingredients!"

I cook from scratch much more than I used to. Thankfully I like to cook. I have to limit my salt intake, and prepared foods are very salty. It only took a few weeks to lose my taste for salt. Now foods I used to think were delicious are too salty! And I am healthier!
