It’s always more fun to DIY. Thanks to Food52, we’re sparing you a trip to the grocery store and show you how to make small batches of great foods at home.
With eleven easy DIY recipes, you can make headway on your ever-growing grocery list, right from the comfort of your kitchen.
Unless you’ve just survived the Trader Joe’s checkout line at 8:30 p.m. on a Sunday, do not expect to be congratulated on your trip to the grocery store. Unlike your parents and your parents’ parents — those brave souls who harnessed the dinosaurs and rode them to the spice bazaar — it’s easy for you to zip to the supermarket and pick up everything you need.
But if you’re looking for a reason to self-congratulate, try making a few of the items that normally end up on your ever-growing grocery list from scratch. Not only will the homemade versions save you money, but they’ll taste better and be better for you, too.
