I can tell you right now, though, that it is cheaper to buy butter than make it. A litre of cream is the same price as a pound of butter. And you will NEVER convince me that it is cheaper to raise backyard poultry than to buy it (or eggs) from the Hutterites...

I heard her interview on NPR and it was great. I think we've all tried out tricks that we thought would be frugal or money-saving, and didn't turn out to be!

and how there is a big movement now for people to cook food at home. I think that is great, but why are all the recipes so complicated? I got DS to look up a recipe for those pb/chocolate bars. I knew that it was just PB, chocolate chips, butter and mini marshmallows. It took a lot longer than it should to find the recipe!

Even a lot of very simple recipes now have expensive, out of reach (for me) ingredients.
