Neither. I'd rather someone cook it for me. But if forced to choose, from scratch.

Well, I am not going to churn my own butter or process my own wheat to get flour.

I usually cook more from scratch; I've been making all my own bread lately but sometimes some boxed mac and cheese is just what I want (I delude myself into thinking it is healthy because it is "organic.")

From scratch, definitely. The stuff from the box could have come from anywhere and have anything done to it.

Same with fast food and basically anything on the market...

I'm not going to make my own everything, but if i have a choice... i go with making food from scratch.

Umm... I'd go with boxed stuff. I'm not that big a fan of cooking to begin with, and I wouldn't like having to spend even more time making stuff from scratch. And for me, whatever benefit I get from making food from scratch won't make up for the time I lost making the food.

Lol I love that you used a picture of sandra lee for the "from scratch" option. She's based her tv show on using processed stuff and mixes to help people make the most of their meal for the time they have.

As for me, I almost always make my meals from scratch.
I just got a great bread cookbook so I'll be making my own bread soon, but for other things like that I don't mind buying it at the store.

I use both, but I prefer making things from scratch. They taste so much better.

what counts as "scratch"?

I'd like to make everything from scratch, but i really don't have the sort of money to keep all of those ingredients on hand. Grocery shopping is expensive nowadays and to make every meal from scratch would cost a fortune, assuming I liked to experiment with various recipes and dishes.

I like making stuff from scratch. I don't find it hard or time consuming and I like the fact that I don't have to read the ingredients to find allergy information.

My family makes nearly everything from scratch (excluding bread - except when I'm feeling particularly ambitious.).
