As much as possible, I try to avoid buying any type of snack food at the store. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, but I figure that whatever I can buy I can just as easily make at home (well, made not just as easily). A variety of reasons motivate me to just make things myself. The first, is that I enjoy it. I am not going to pretend that there aren’t perfectly healthy, tasty, affordable foods out there. If you don’t enjoy making homemade crackers, why would you make homemade crackers? But I think it is a lot of fun.
