I grew up eating real cheese, real eggs, real butter, real food. Maybe I’m trying to bring back those days in my own kitchen. Plus, food production today is quite different than it was in the 60’s and 70’s when I was a child and young adult. Our food supply has changed a great deal and I’m just trying to get back to basics. So, in no particular order, here’s a list of simple but yummy foods to make from scratch. None of them are difficult at all and when you sprinkle some homemade croutons on your Caesar salad, your family will practically swoon! Master these 5 and you are a certified Kitchen Princess!

Baby, it’s cold outside and nothing warms us up like a steaming bowl of simple but rich and flavorful Italian Wedding Soup. This soup is super easy to make. You can start it at 5 and have it on the table by 6. Light yet filling and full of healthy greens. And the cutest little meatballs you’ve ever seen. In fact, if you have kids, they will love helping with this. Enjoy it with some crusty Italian bread and a big salad. Salud!
