scratch cooking...yes or no?

In Jennifer Reese's book, Make the Bread, Buy the Butter, she chronicles her life after she lost her job. She wondered about making food at home from scratch, is it really cheaper? Her experiments range from the doable (bread, bagels) to the truly ridiculous (butchering your own turkey, making vermouth!) Reese also includes "the hassle factor" and a cost comparison. I also found this book to be laugh-out-loud funny as she takes an ironic tone to describe her adventures in say, goat keeping or curing her own meats. Informative and witty, I loved this book! ML
