A few weeks ago, a very interesting discussion came up in the comment thread to one of our Make or Buy? posts. A few of you pointed out that, sure, making our own pantry staples like pasta, crackers, and granola bars is almost always going to win out over store-bought in taste, healthfulness, and even cost. But it's just not always practical. What do you think? When is homemade worth it and when is it too much?
