Cooking From Scratch

In an effort to avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup in our house, one of my goals this year is to cook from scratch more often. The most eaten things around here are snacks and bread....we go through these almost as soon as they enter the house! So there is also a financial incentive to make these things in bulk ourselves. So far we have made granola bars, granola, pizza, honey oat bread and light wheat bread. Everything has turned out wonderful so far! Our dinners are almost always from scratch, and I love www.allrecipes.com for the reviews and selection of recipes. I'd love to hear what you're making from scratch!

Pizza is our favorite from scratch meal. My husband would gladly eat it over take out pizza! I keep our freezer stocked with them, all I have to do is take it out and pop it in the oven, yum!

Oh and check out http://www.recipezaar.com if you haven't I like it even more than allrecipes.com

Lisa,
What recipe do you use for pizza dough? I've tried 2 different recipes, and so far not liked either enough to make more to freeze.

This is something I would love to do as well. I was doing much better about it a little over a year ago but now we are eating processed crap and eating out entirely too much which is expensive and terrible!

Thanks for the website link..
