Cooking from scratch...

mpjmph | Mar 24, 2009 05:58 PM

I'm curious about how other Chowhounders define cooking from scratch. The answer was always really obvious to me, but from reading various threads I'm starting to think the answers vary a lot more than I originally thought.

To me cooking from scratch basically means not using mixes/convenience foods. Some ingredients are"pre-fab," like peanut butter, but I would still consider the cookies made from scratch without grinding the peanuts myself.

So, how far do you go in the pursuit of made from scratch?
