Homemade Store Bought Favorites

Ever heard the phrase “Homemade is Always Better”?  Over the last three months I’ve been trying to live my life by this motto.  In the kitchen it’s going great.  The laundry room…not so well.  But let’s focus on the good…the food!  My family loves the quick (and high calorie unfortunately) snack items such as oatmeal creme pies, pop tarts and cereal/snack bars.  Upon scouring the internet and of course pinterest, I feel that I’ve conquered the quest of making these yummy recipes myself in the comfort of my own kitchen!  Not only does the above phrase “Homemade is Always Better” hold true as far as taste goes, it is totally true when it comes to the wallet.  Spending some extra time in the kitchen makes my wallet smile.  Which in turn makes me smile as I’m picking up that extra cute sun dress on sale!  =)  Feel free to join me on my adventure of making those favorite store bought favorites at home.  Here are some of the recipes that I’m using.  Please feel free to share of your favorite recipes.
