Things that aren't worth making from scratch

Massive mess, load of faff, never as good as decent ones from a butcher. Also I’m a vegetarian now so I wouldn’t have ANY use for them

hard disagree with this (except maybe filo) but dairy / egg intolerances may factor in (plus food processor makes it so easy)

Same. It was horrific and don’t think i put enough salt in so it wasn’t even good. It was over ten years ago but still feel a bit traumatised by it :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
