Cookbook Giveaway: The Homemade Pantry

With The Homemade Pantry cookbook you can skip buying packaged snack cakes at the grocery store and instead bake up these homemade beauties.

Reading Alana Chernila’s description of lasagna night at her house in The Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying and Start Making was enough to make me add rennet (for cheese making) to my shopping list. She describes pulling her own warm mozzarella, as fresh tomato sauce bubbles on the stovetop and homemade lasagna noodles hang waiting, all while wrangling her two young daughters. When she contrasts her dinner to the idea of a convenient tin of frozen pasta, there’s no doubt which one I’d rather cozy up to.

Alana began making pantry staples at home because of a tight budget, but soon found how rewarding it could be — the food is better for you, it tastes better, it usually costs less, it eliminates packaging and it makes you think about food in a different, more connected way. With her new cookbook Alana is sharing her enthusiasm for cooking and her tried-and-true recipes. So you’ll be able to stop buying and start making one thing this week, another the next and before you know it, you’ll be having your own messy food adventures.

Here are some recipes from The Homemade Pantry to get you started:
The Snack Cake
Toaster Pastries
Hamburger Buns

You can fill these homemade toaster pastries with sweet jam or cinnamon and sugar or go savory and make pizza pockets or interesting apps.

We’re giving away one autographed copy of The Homemade Pantry to one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling us what pantry staples you make (or would like to make) at home.
