Sometimes I pretend that I make things from scratch because of its cheaper or healthier, but really I just love the process. Some things I've made once and then never bother with again, but most things I make regularly.
  1. β€’
    Fresh pasta
    I've done this exactly once, and I found the process (working the cutting machine especially) a bit frustrating. And now I want to try again but I can't remember where the machine is. :/
  2. β€’
    Sourdough bread
    This is actually becoming a regular thing. I created the starter myself about two years ago, and once I forgot it in the fridge for months and still it bounced back to life when I took it out and fed it. So now I thank it every time I make bread 😁.
  3. β€’
    Fruit jams & preserves
  4. β€’
    All that whisking... πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ˜…
  5. β€’
    Brown sugar
    I don't even know why I did this.
  6. β€’
    Pie crust
    But as I bake my own bread, this is probably a given.
  7. β€’
    Chicken stock
    Or any broth/stock, really
  8. β€’
    Ricotta cheese
  9. β€’
  10. β€’
    Pita bread
  11. β€’
  12. β€’
    Pizza dough
  13. β€’
  14. β€’
    Ice cream
  15. β€’
  16. β€’
  17. β€’
    Stuff I'm curious to make but still too intimidated or lazy to try:
    Dumpling dough, puff pastry, ketchup, cream cheese, crackers, extracts, marshmallows, pickles, peanut butter.
