Re: Recipes if you're trying to reduce prepackaged foods

Better Than Store Bought has excellent recipes for things to make from scratch.

I highly recommend the refried beans (we eat this twice a week with a bit less oil), graham crackers, and baking extracts (we have done vanilla, lemon, orange).

My daughter has a lot of severe food allergies and this book was a life saver for me. I was sad that she developed an orange and lemon allergy just when the extracts were about ready to be used. I used potato vodka for the extracts, any large liquor store carries it.

I use a wok to fry up the refried beans as even with my largest fry pan I would have spillage onto the stove top.
