    1. Thanks Amanda! I NEVER would have thought to make bagels myself until a friend showed me how. They’re soooo delicious – the only down side is making them last once they’re out of the oven ;0)

  1. I have an old book, from the 80’s I think, called Make Your Own Groceries. It has recipes for almost all pre-packaged foods (that existed back then). Freezer waffles, ketchup, granola, crackers, and so much more.

    But, I did make a lot of our snacks and such from scratch for a couple of years… and I burnt out. The $2 I saved to make my own crackers that took 30 minutes to make became not worth it for me.

    I still make my own bread because I think most of it is better than the stores and I love the fresh smell in the house. I cook most meals from scratch, but I had to find a balance between what I could do and what I wanted to do with my time.


  2. Just finished making two (different flavored) batches of the granola bars with a few of my children. They are amazing. I don’t think I will be able to eat the store bought ones anymore. The recipe was simple and fast. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
