    I made banana and caramel muffins today, they worked yay havn't got much else done with 3 sick kids the last few days. I made my usual white sauce we have when we have a roast hoping to get the kids involved in some cooking these school holidays, and seen a recipe to make paint that puffs up in the microwave so we'll give that a go, it says to do it on cardboard though wondering if paper would work obviously we won't be eating that but it's still home made fun

    But seriously my tip is to learn some methods of cooking and basics that you can apply to any ingredients

    Like how to make basic soup, casserole, slow cooker, roast etc.

    Then some basic fla

    Ohh, loving this thread! I make most sauces etc. from scratch, but it's fantastic to have recipes/suggestions from people who use them regularly - especially breads etc.

    Will add some of my favourite recipes for snacks later, and I'm sure there are some recipes I'd appreciate from others

    We've been trying to keep our grocery budget the same even with our kids getting older and eating more and so I'm getting to the point of everything is from scratch.

    My hot-tip is YouTube. If there's something that's too tricky for me to work out just by googling "*something* from scratch" I search it on YouTube. Also basics like how to poach an egg etc.

    I'm planning to make Lebanese bread, but I keep forgetting to buy yeast for it.

    I've been recently making pizza dough which is divine. Mix 1 tablespoon honey and 1&1/4 teaspoons of instant yeast into a cup of water, leave for 10 mins to foam. Add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of salt and 3 cups if pizza/ bread flour. Mix with dough hook in stand mixer for 6 minutes then lightly oil dough and bowl and leave to rise for 1-2 hrs.
    I cook mine on a pizza stone on the highest temp my oven will go. Takes between 6-10 mins to cook depending on how thick the base is.

    I love making potato gnocchi from scratch!
    This is the recipe that I use: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/2446/potato+gnocchi

    (I don't bother decorating with the fork, just cut into little rectangles)

    I usually do a double batch and freeze one uncooked. Any pasta sauce goes well.
