I bet you didn’t know you could make these food items at home! (Actually, if you’ve been reading here long, you probably do know about most of these, but act surprised anyway.) ;)
The old me used to make EVERYTHING from scratch. Some of you probably remember that girl. I made homemade ketchup, homemade tortillas, homemade grape nuts cereal, homemade hashbrowns, homemade tator tots… Wait. Homemade Tator Tots?? Yes. It was a reader request and I figured out how to do it! I was what one might call “an overachiever.” (Or “that really crazy heavenly homemaker lady.”)
Now I’m in a different season in life with a big houseful of littles and have decided that there are some food items that aren’t worth my time to make at home. Loving my people is more important than making Homemade Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. Oh my goodness yes. I even tried that too.
But today I want to share 10 food items that are easy to make at home, will save a lot of money, and are worth your time!
10 Easy Food Items You Didn’t Know You Could Make at Home
We’ll start with my favorite! This saves a lot of money and is amazing to make in your very own kitchen!
2. Peanut Butter (super creamy – spreadable, like Skippy or Jif)
This tastes so much better than any store brand and is so much fun to make. Watch peanuts turn into peanut butter! So cool.
This costs pennies and is so much better for us!
I always thought this was restaurant food. Turns out, it’s super cheap Friday night dinner at home.
No, it isn’t cool whip. It’s 1,000 times better.
Hidden Valley who?
These taste so incredibly good and are easy to make in bulk amounts to freeze and pull out for easy breakfasts!
The kind from a box will never taste as good as these gems. You can even make them chocolate!
Make a bunch of packets or make a big batch in a jar for easy, inexpensive breakfasts!
Because why pay $5 at a coffee shop when you can make it for much less at home?
Which of these have you tried? Ready to try something new?!
