Make or Buy?
A huge thank-you to Carolyn for sending this article in Slate my way. In it, Jennifer Reese investigates whether it's cheaper and/or better to make various pantry staples at home. Now that I've read it, I'm definitely going to make homemade granola (Melissa's been urging me to do it for years), I may very well give yogurt a go, but I draw the line at bagels. Reese swears homemade are better than store bought, but living where I live now, two blocks from Absolute Bagels (aka absolutely the best bagel you'll ever have especially if you choose everything bagels), I'm buying. Maybe if I leave this neighborhood I'll bake my own, but for now, the store bought bagel wins.
