What do you make from scratch &, if you had the time, what WOULD you make from scratch?

I thought of this when I saw last week's Los Angeles Times Food section article on grinding your own flour. While an avid baker, I first thought "Jeez, who has the time to do THAT?", then I thought about what I would make from scratch...if I did have the time, and what do I do make from scratch, whether I have the time or not. I didn't include in the first list obvious things like "most of our meals" since, as a CH, I obviously make most of our meals).

WHAT i DO MAKE FROM SCRATCH: (THAT MOST PEOPLE JUST BUY OR USE A MIX)
Cookies, cakes, pies, and desserts such as mousse, rice puddings, etc.
(including Tres Leches cake, NY-style cheesecake, and Sans Rival)
Mac and cheese
Hummus
Salad dressings (homemade blue cheese - you gotta try it!)
Dips (onion, and pimento cheese -ditto!)
Pancakes

WHAT I HAVE MADE FROM SCRATCH (& WOULD CONTINUE TO DO SO, WHEN I HAVE TIME):
Bread
Yogurt
Pasta

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE:
Doughnuts
Beer
Root beer
Ricotta cheese

So what's on your lists?
