I know all of us on here are great cooks, but once in a while we all cheat. Baking my quiche today made me think what things would I never cheat with? What would I never buy ready made? So, quiche is on my list for starters. I love making pastry and find bought quiches wet, tasteless and not worth the calories. Alongside quiche would be anything made with pastry......pies, tartes, sausage rolls. Cakes...................never buy a shop cake. Obv sourdough bread.......never buy and always bake. Yorkshire puddings...............Aunt Bessie is a fraud and should be thrown to the dogs! Hummous. Coleslaw. Foods I usually make but will sometimes buy include natural yoghurt (some fab Greek ones out there), curry (Costco make some epic ready meal curries that are as good as homemade. We often keep one in the freezer for CBA moments), ice cream (especially for affogato), guacamole, pizza and jam. Food I usually buy but sometimes make include sausages (love making them but a bit of a faff!), breaded camembert/brie, pickled onions (my poor eyes!), chapatis and naan breads, onion bhajis and fresh pasta. What about the rest of you?
