Carnival #140 - From A - Z

Welcome to this week's edition of the Make it from Scratch Carnival. Make it from Scratch is all about making things for yourself. Sometimes we make things for the sake of frugality, and sometimes to express creativity. Often making something from scratch is a combination of both. You just never know what you may find in this carnival. Sometimes everything from A to Z!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. That is how I cook. Sometimes it turns out quite well, and worth trying to remember. Black Bean Chili is posted at Make It From Scratch.

Butternut Squash Risotto: Transcendence in a Bowl is posted at Cheap Healthy Good. Kris promises us that it is creamy and rich beyond it's calorie count. Oh it looks good!

Corn and Molasses Bread is posted at Condo Blues. This would go great with my chili.

Dreaming of Spring is posted at Beading Arts. Just because it is chilly outside doesn't mean we can't look to spring.

Elderberries can be a challenge for novices to the berry. Elderberry experiments posted at Stop the Ride.

Frugal? Simple Llama knows frugal. DIY iPhone Scanner posted at Simple Llama.

Garden tomatoes are just the best thing ever. I miss mine already. Wren Caulfield is using hers to make Homemade Pico de Gallo with Garden Tomatoes posted at True Adventures in Money Hacking.

Homemade Pizza is one of our favorite family meals. Gramma Greenjeans' Homemade Pizza looks delicious. It is posted at Better Gardens than Home.

I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream.
No, actually, drooling would better describe my reaction to Mrs. Accountability's Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Recipe | Out of Debt Again posted at Out of Debt Again.

Plarn. Not sure what that is? Check it out! Plarn Plastic Bag Keeper posted at My Recycled Bags.com.

Quick breads are often the way to go, especially if you have a time crunch. Cranberry Oat Knots - A Quick Rise Yeast Bread sound quick and delicious. You'll find it posted at Making My Own Luck.

Rice and crockpot. Two of my favorite food things. Lizzie presents Spanish Rice in the Crockpot posted at A Dusty Frame.

Sausage, Swiss Chard & Potatoes Casserole posted at Family Balance Sheet. Love this flavor combination!

Tomato Soup is posted at Gotta Little Space. Homemade tomato soup is out of this world. Makes the stuff I grew up on taste like cardboard.

Whole Wheat Croissants redoux (Carnival of Super-Foods) is posted at The Titus 2 Homemaker. Oh croissants, yummy!
