There was a time not long ago when women made all their food from scratch. You know, they made it themselves. They made cakes with flour and sugar, not from a box. They baked their own bread and churned their own butter. Okay, the butter is a bit of a stretch, but you get the idea. In our society today, we have so many fabulous conveniences, (I gotta say, I LOVE my refrigerator and I ain’t givin’ up my washing machine for nothin’), but there are some things I long to learn how to do myself. I’m curious about how to make my own mayonnaise or bar of soap.
Now, I realize you may not share my dreams, but there are a few things you might be interested in knowing how to do because you’ve heard it’s much cheaper than buying store bought. And for you, I dedicate this series, “From Scratch”.
For the next 5 weeks, every Wednesday, I’m going to bring you to my kitchen and show you some easy “From Scratch” items that you can use in your cooking every day of the week. You’ll be amazed at how simple each of these will be. And your budget will thank you.
Here’s what I’ve got planned:

So, go round up your apron. I’ll see you here next Wednesday for “From Scratch…Roast Chicken”.
