I know I went on a bit of a rant a few months ago about making my own hummus, but there are definitely foods that are super-easy and totally worth making at home.

A few of my favorites:

  • Tomato sauce—my mom may not be Italian, but her recipe tastes just as good as anything I had in Italy
  • Granola—we may not be in touch anymore, but I do have to admit that, if nothing else, when it came to making granola, that ex-boyfriend had skillz.
  • Soup—My favorites are basically everything on my recipe page.
  • Shake ‘n’ Bake—an experiment gone very right.
  • Miso-Tahini Dressing—enough said.

What are your favorite convenience foods to make at home?
