Homemade cooking
So after seeing the thread about grocery stores in Memphis I had to know whether there are any other people out there who are insistent upon making as much as they can from scratch.

Personally I insist on making my own bread. I have a pretty good pizza dough recipe (with tossing it in the air included...I have given this recipe to just about everyone that has tried my pizzas, I bake them like I learned when I spent my semester abroad in a little town of 3,000 people at the top of a mountain on the Tuscan/Umbrian border), rye bread, ciabatta, french baguette, country bread, american sandwich bread, granola, and pretzel roll.

I also make my own peanut butter (honey roasted) and never buy Italian sauces (alfredo, ragu, basic tomato, pesto, and arrabiatta sauces) as well as things such as tomatillo and salsa (as well as the tortilla chips that go with it, a little unhealthy with the oil, but it's much better than buying tortilla chips out of a bag).

I'm going to start attempting at making my own butter, creme fraiche, and cheeses as soon as I can convince my wife that she won't get sick and die from it. I'm building her trust.


I don't know about y'all, but I get a sense of satisfaction from what I can make with my own two hands and a little bit of time on top of the fact that I can control the ingredients and taste rather than be held captive.


Anybody have any recipes that they would like to share?

Kudos to Neillis.

Don't mind the cooking, but it makes way to much of a mess.

Do you have a blog page where you post these recipes? If not you should.

I definitely want your pizza dough and sauces recipes. Are you growing your own herbs?

That used to be a bookcase or coffee table. Now, it's bread.

Yeah, I wish this country still made its own furniture, appliances, etc.

Kudos to you, Neil. I know you and your lovely wife will be all the healthier and happier for your efforts. Do post your recipes!
