My sister informed me this week that I “fit into my own mold”.
I think she might have been trying to tell me that I’m “weird”.
I chose to take it as a compliment. 🙂
Maybe I am strange, but nothing thrills me quite as much as discovering how to do something that:
- improves our family’s health
- saves us money
- is something I can make from scratch
- is truly simple
And when I figure out something that does all four??? Well, THAT is something I REALLY get excited about!
I’m taking the long way of telling you that I love, love, love to make my own baking powder.
Yep, it really makes me happy. Really.
Why? Well, homemade baking powder is:
- healthier than store-bought baking powder (which usually contains aluminum)
- a little cheaper than store-bought varieties
- is definitely something I can make from scratch
- is SO simple to make!
I’ve been mixing up my own baking powder for a few years now and I never plan to buy that old Clabber Girl stuff again! (Although I think the container is chic.)
If you ever feel the urge to get creative (or if you run out of baking powder while you’re baking, which is what I did!), you might give this little recipe a try. It’s SO easy!
Oh, and you might just end up being “weird” like me, so watch out. 🙂
What do you make from scratch that most people buy?
