Making your own Greek Yogurt (and saving a boatload of money if you have a Greek yogurt habit like mine) is as easy as dump and drain. Really. But if you want to take it the extra (frugal and taste) step and make it from scratch, it’s not much more complicated. Let me show you!
You can even use your bread-maker!!
It couldn’t be easier!
Homemade refried beans are the easiest in the world to make, and are toward the top of the list of “Things That are SO Worth Making From Scratch Because They Taste So Much Better Than The Storebought Stuff.” Use them to make burritos, nachos, or just top with cheese and serve alongside tacos, quesadillas, or enchiladas.
There is NOTHING like homemade noodles with a hearty, meaty sauce. Nothing. Now, I’d never pass up pasta of any kind. I have a pantry full of dried pasta and it’s my favorite food on earth. But once I sunk my teeth into this homemade pasta Ryan made—covered with his rich Bolognese Sauce—I knew I’d finally come home.
Have you ever gone to the pantry for a can of cream of something soup only to realize that you don’t have any? Here’s a quick fix that will substitute (or replace in my house) for any can of cream-of-anything soup that is cheaper, tastier, and better for you than what comes out of the can.
