More Than 50 Pantry Staples Made Homemade from Table for Seven

Homemade is always best, isn't it?  It's not always easy, but, making so many pantry staples homemade is really simple.

They can save money and you can feel better knowing what is exactly going into your food.  Yes, it does take a little extra time sometimes, but, hey, you don't have to make all  of these.

Baby steps.

If you can, replace a few of your store bought items with homemade and just kick your pre-packaged stuff to the curb!

I've rounded up over 50 items that you can totally make homemade, but, I'm sure there are a ton more that are easy to make. (let me know what I missed!)

What do you like make homemade instead of the package?

    It's Monday..are you ready for a new week?

    I am. For sure

    We spent last week battling the flu at my house.  Two kids were down for the count, I felt awful for the two of them.  Fatigue, fevers..ugh.  I even had to take my daughter to the ER to avoid her getting dehydrated. Major..ugh.

    The rest of the family has been OK, thanks to me keeping my fingers crossed and more importantly, preventive flu medicine from our doctor.  But, as any parent knows, when your kid is sick, it's just stressful and awful. Thank goodness though, they are both doing much better and we are all ready to start a new week!

    Homemade Ranch Dressing (No Mayo Needed!) from Table for Seven

    Soooo many years ago, I started making my own ranch dressing.  I shared the recipe here on the blog way back then and continue to make it here at home to this day.

    A good majority of my kids are serious ranch dressing lovers, therefore, making it homemade is sorta a no-brainer.  This stuff is so easy to throw together, is cheaper, and my family just likes it better then the store version.

    Happy Monday!

    How was your weekend? Ours was snowy. Very snowy.  Since Friday, we have received several inches of snow. Honestly, I can't even tell you the exact amount. It just kept snowing and snowing and snowing. ❄❄❄ 

    It would of been the perfect opportunity to get some odd jobs done around the house.  But, I used the time to relax and watch Netflix for a good part of the weekend.  

    That was a much better choice. 😉

    I live in a small town. A not very exciting, small town.

    It has one grocery store, two fast food places and for some reason, a thousand banks(?).  Honestly, it's a little boring, but, it's a a nice, safe place to raise our kids and it fits our budget.  

    There is one good thing in my little town. Actually, three.  We have three bakeries. No, I'm not counting the bakery section in that one grocery store. Three, actual, small town, locally owned, make their stuff homemade everyday, bakeries.

    It's been quite a while since my last Instant Pot recipe

    My pot is still getting used, but, it's definitely been a work in progress.  I use the slow cooker option on my Instant Pot, all the time and just recently, the yogurt option. Those both work great, but, I'm still getting used to the pressure cooker function.

    But, that's OK! I'm going to keep working at it..so, I'm hope you guys will enjoy them. 😊
