Is mascarpone in there? That is one cheese I've made, at much lower cost than store bought, not to mention it only seems to be available locally around Christmas. I blame our lack of Italian population.

I have some cookbooks along these lines of making your own, such as mixes and sauces. I love these kinds of cookbooks, and judging from your review this one sounds very thorough!
Making our own is fresher and cheaper. Today what drives me more than anything is being able to avoid so harmful ingredients.
Part of the problem here is that 100 years ago, most everybody had some kind of help whether it was a laundress, housekeeper or cook, no matter what class you were. We are using grocery stores to substitute for this loss. No wonder I'm so tired all the time, today we are expected to do everything - who has that kind of stamina or time? Something's gotta give.

Ok, you've got my attention here. What kitchen equipment do you use to keep from burning green beans when you saute them? ;-)
I enjoyed this cookbook, again for the nudge to make more here at home. I've already made the pop-tarts at home, and they are yummy. I'm encouraged to try to do some canning this fall and see how it turns out.
