Think about all the money one spends on buying prefab cookies in the supermarket. I feel a tinge of guilt when I think about what I spent over the years. Especially when it is so easy to make them yourself. And so much better! And much cheaper too. These prices I got after browsing a bit:
Sugar (2 kilo) AUS$ 3.00
Milk (1 liter) AUS$ 1.50
Eggs (12) AUS$ 4.00
Plain flour (1k) AUS$ .80
Butter (250gr) AUS$ 1.40
This adds up to just over AUS$ 10 (= EUR 6.60 = US$ 8.90).
All you need than is some:
– jam (who doesn’t have jam?)
– chocolate (who doesn’t have chocolate?)
– whatever takes your fancy!
So just type your favorite recipe in the search bar and off you go. You’ll have pages and pages of results. Just choose the one that appeals to you. It doesn’t take long to make it. It probably takes longer to go to the supermarket and buy it. Also, you can most likely make a hundred cookies instead of buying one, maybe two packages.
Same goes for cupcakes or cake or apple pie. And the beauty is, if you don’t have a certain ingredient (for example, eggs) you are sure to find suggestions for egg replacement online too. With just a click of your mouse!
You can do the same for anything. Soup, roast chicken, cupcakes, savory pancakes, anything. No, really, anything.
And than we play with food-coloring:
