Make It Better

SP&P readers--I am working on a group of recipes to put together and call them "Make It Better." The recipes would be up the alley of my hummus, pizza dough, homemade soft pretzels, Super Bars and Taco Mix.

You know, things easily bought but with the right recipe, you can make it better.

I have a list of recipes in the hopper to develop for the blog, but I want your input.

Anything you want to be able to make at home with a reliable recipe?

Thanks,
SPC

Don't forget your popsicles from 4th of July and your pancake mix!

Hmmm...I'll think about this one.

Also, don't forget about your popcorn, Lemonade and pizza sauce, as far as your existing "make it better" categories goes.

How about your spaghetti sauce and pita chips?

I think you should list out your ideas and we can vote on the ones that excite us the most. I'm having a hard time thinking of things that I buy that I'd want to "make it better."

Corn chips. I know I can make them, I just don't know where to start. And meatballs. They seem to be too much work, but people swear that homemade is better than store-bough. Make me a believer!

Whit.ing--Corn chips...like Fritos? or like homemade tortilla chips. Meatballs are a good one.

SM--Some ideas I had in the back of my mind were refried beans, pudding, and homemade tortillas. We also do homemade jello, but that isn't really a recipe.

I just realized I meant tortilla chips- not corn chips. Sorry.

I was just thinking to myself that I would like a homemade pudding recipe... please share what you know! And the refried beans would be good too. I make my mother's version, but it is a bit bland.
