Spike Gjerde, executive chef and co-owner of Baltimore’s Woodberry Kitchen, shared a list of “Five Things You Really Should Be Making From Scratch.” The handy thing about this list is that he tells you how to make each of them. They’re easier than you think:
Here’s Gjerde’s Five From-Scratch Musts:
2. Whipped cream
5. Iced tea
Looking at his list, I’m a little proud to say my family is holding its own when it comes to making things from scratch. I like to make my own salad dressing – you won’t find any store-bought stuff in our fridge. Salsas in the summer (or if a recipe calls for it) are also an easy one I like to make. And my husband, he makes some mean whipped cream – you’ve haven’t had strawberry shortcake until you’ve had it with the real stuff.
What easy-to-make stuff is in your repertoire?
