Homemade Goodies

I used to buy popcorn in microwave bags. One day, I became nostalgic and bought kernels for stove popping instead. That's how I learned I like homemade popcorn better. It tasted better. I could add my own ingredients. And it was cheaper.

I started wondering what other foods are easy to make and less costly than their ready-made counterparts. I quickly learned that peanut butter can be made in only ten minutes with only three ingredients. And, again, it was tastier and cheaper than its store-bought equivalent. I wanted to find even more items I could make, so I searched for a few books at the library and came up with three good guides.

The Food in My Beard

the food in the beard design logo"The Food in My Beard"  That's right, besides having the most awesome title ever, this "food lovers" blog serves up tasty recipes from the bearded one himself, Dan Whelan.  Seriously, how do you not love a cooking site that has a "Stubble" section (where Whalen focuses on basic cooking skills and dishes)? Check out the recipe for Lasagna Timpano, where Whelan gives step-by-step directions for making a mouthwatering multi-layered, "multi-flavored" lasagna.
