To me, home made is something made in your home. This does not mean opening a can, adding water and heating. There has to be some prep and cooking involved. I do not think that restaurants can have home made food. That is just my opinion of the definition.

So far there was no difference for me between "homemade" and "from scratch" ..... hmmmmm ....

Home made for me means taking the basic ingredients and making the dish. For instance, I am constantly flummoxed here when recipes state 'a yellow cake mix' or a 'white cake mix'..... My recipes start - 'cream together the butter and sugar, add eggs then flour'!

I don't consider anything from a mix homemade. To me, scratch and homemade are the same. That doesn't mean I don't ever use a mix, but I don't tell anyone it is homemade, if I did.

So I'm not the only one who, when serving a dessert or whatever from a box, put the little disclaimer of "oh, I didn't make these from scratch" or something like that...I have to admit, it's kind of like admitting guilt to something for me, that is...I kind of hang my head, hope nobody will notice it's not from scratch.

I like taking shortcuts sometime and I don't think it is anything to feel ashamed about. Some of the things I most enjoy may be something that wasn't made from scratch. We aren't all good at the same things. One thing about making from scratch is we know exactly what is in the recipe.

Home-made in baking I agree with Ishbel...but I'm not above opening a can of diced tomatoes rather than starting with fresh...and I'm sure not going to go pick the green beans off the vine....lol. I don't make my own pasta either...yet I call my pasta dishes home-made...so do you think we think of "home-made" more when we think of baking?

KAYLINDA - I tend to think in reference to baking too - there I will make a distinction. Homemade spaghetti sauce will have canned tomato sauce and tomatoes in it but it's still homemade.
