From Scratch

This might not save time, but it keeps the food healthy, and very tasty! To top that off we burn a few calories up on our feet moving, so add this to the twist.

Pasta, taste so good freshly made! Spaghetti sauce or marinara from fresh tomatoes and herbs, corn tortilla's from masa. Hummus from home needs less oil. If I want chips I fry flour tortilla in my caste iron; only 1 serving made.
If I want dip - guacamole is made from scratch. No presevatives!

    We prefer to cook from scratch and it does taste better.

    I also find it easier to watch the calories since there are no "hidden calories" in what I cook. emoticon
