why buy it?

Pin It

I've been on a bit of a DIY food kick.  Why buy some of this stuff, when you can make it yourself, without a lot of time investment? There are so many easy-to-find recipes on Pinterest, it seems a shame not to try them out.

Chocolate Syrup - Easy. No HFCS. Dairy free. Tastes yummy!

French bread - Good, but I need to work on my technique. And making it whole grain?

Hamburger buns - I tried a few recipes, and I have liked this one the best.  I like to use coconut oil, and it give it a slightly sweet flavor.

Ranch seasoning - I like the lack of preservatives, colorings, and HFCS.  I think it's really good.  It tastes fresher and less processed than store bought ranch.

Have any others to suggest to me?

And, a shout out to the blog Try it or Buy it.  I've really enjoyed seeing what she picks and her analysis of the worth of buying it vs. DIY.

Taco seasoning!
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 tsp each:
cumin, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, sugar, and salt
Use it like a packet, with some water and simmer it off. It it enough for a pound, maybe up to 1.5lbs if you don't want it really spicy.

Thanks for the shout out! I love how we all inspire each other to try new things. Were it not for your original post on vanilla, I may never have gotten mine bottled!
