Make The Bread, Buy The Butter Book Review & #Giveaway

by Holly Duce on October 29, 2012

 

A few years ago I started experimenting with baking things from scratch.  Making things homemade you avoid preservatives and any unknown ingredients.  You know exactly what you are eating and most of the time you are also saving money.  That being said, sometimes the cost and/or effort it takes to make certain things just isn’t worth it. The author of Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should (And Shouldn’t!) Cook from Scratch to Save Time and Money conducted an in-depth series of experiments to lower her family’s grocery bill by making everything by hand.  Along the way she discovered that cooking from scratch isn’t always practical.  Her cookbook is filled with 120 tried and true recipes that will yield the best results both time and money-wise to show you how to make the most of your time in the kitchen.

Here are some examples from the book:

MAKE:
hot dog buns
pancakes
chocolate cake
guacamole
eggs benedict
yogurt
hummus
dill pickles
cured meats
whipped cream
bagels
BUY:
baguettes
sashimi
hamburger buns

rice pudding
corn dogs
English muffins
ice cream cones
BOTH:
