Obviously, all of us here like to bake. And generally speaking, our own baked goods are going to be far superior from what you can buy in the shops (though proper, traditional bakeries are a different story). \n\nAre there still things you buy in the shop anyway? Or are all the goodies in your house homemade? \n\nI personally would love it if more of the sweet treats were homemade. I do make most of the bread we eat, but can't find the time to do much sweet baking, somehow. I try to make a batch of something at least once a week, but often don't even manage that. \n\nCost is a consideration also. Shop bought biscuits are usually much cheaper than the ingredients required to make the equivalent. Of course, it's worth it, but when the budget is tight...\n\nAnd then there's things I wouldn't know how to make but couldn't live without. Custard creams being a prime example! \n\nJust curious to see how other people manage the bought vs homemade balance.
