Description
 
Selected by the New York Times as a Notable Cookbook, by USA TODAY as a Best Holiday Gift For the Foodie, and by More.com as one of their Best Cookbooks of the Year.

This unique combination of recipes, memoir, and advice is "pure entertainment in an original, fresh voice" (Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook).

When blogger Jennifer Reese lost her job, she began a series of food-related experiments. Economizing by making her own peanut butter, pita bread, and yogurt, she found that "doing it yourself" doesnt always cost less or taste better. In fact, she found that the joys of making some foods from scratch-- marshmallows, hot dog buns, and hummus--can be augmented by buying certain ready-made foods--butter, ketchup, and hamburger buns. Tired? Buy your mayonnaise. Inspired? Make it.

With Reeses fresh voice and delightful humor, Make the Bread, Buy the Butter has 120 recipes with eminently practical yet deliciously fun "make or buy" recommendations. Her tales include living with a backyard full of cheerful chickens, muttering ducks, and adorable baby goats; countertops laden with lacto-fermenting pickles; and closets full of mellowing cheeses. Heres the full picture of what is involved in a truly homemade life and how to get the most out of your time in the kitchen--with the good news that you shouldnt try to make everything yourself.
