    I count a breadmaker as from scratch. For me I guess the term refers to knowing what is in your food. I've just borrowed MIL's breadmaker and am loving it. I can bake bread by hand but don't have time.

    I make egg pasta from scratch. Lots of people think it's really hard but it's quite easy. Just takes a bit of time and planning because you have to let the dough rest and then when you roll it through the pasta machine it needs to hang and dry a bit before cutting.

    @amyd, I forgot to say (sleep deprivation) buy a tortilla press! They're about $20 and the most effective way for getting really thin tortillas. We line ours with supermarket brand freezer bags so they don't stick to the press. You can also freeze them pressed and uncooked that way.

    I bake bread and make pastry from scratch when I have the time. I also make things like stock, sauces/marinades and different pestos. I need to learn more 'from scratch' recipes though!

    There are sins great ideas here.

    I make my own pasta sauces, curry paste, pizza bases, pizza sauces, all my baking is from scratch.

    Now that I've got a decent kitchen I'm going to make more by scratch. It's so satisfying
