Recipes you can make at home, instead of buying from the store. From jelly to salad dressing to crackers, you will love these homemade versions of your favorite foods!
Normally I would just run to the store and buy what I need for a recipe that sounds good. But with these times of staying home, we’ve all had to get more creative. I needed hummus the other day, and normally I would buy a local brand that we love. Instead, I quickly whipped some up in the food processor. It was easy and delicious.
These recipes are things you can easily make at home with staple ingredients. The homemade versions are easy and better than store-bought. How wonderful to have your fridge and freezer stocked with jelly, salsa, salad dressing, and more that you made yourself! You might never go back to the store-bought versions!
