      I think he meant chips, cookies, shells'n'cheese kinda things. My hubby & I are pretty broke most of the time, so cooking at home helps a lot. Honestly, if you get into a rhythm of what you like to use, you end up saving money and using fresher, more quality ingredients. Like the day I found out you can wash & freeze mushrooms was the best day ever! No more tinned shrooms for me! & I find homemade sauces are super $$ savers, but you have to think ahead. Like, I keep heavy cream, butter, eggs & grated parmesan on a daily basis for multiple uses. Those can make a basic Alfredo to feed 6 and what didn't get thrown in can be used separately or together on a dozen other dishes. So it becomes cost effective. Now I can make a meal to feed a family of 4 at an average cost between $4 to $12 a meal -- that would have cost $50 for 4 at a restaurant.
      Quality doesn't need to be organic or from central market whatever kind of places. Half the time I buy at Wal-Mart or Aldi. Quality is healthy, fresh foods. It's cheaper than eating out at even MacDonald's once you learn your rhythm & a heck of a lot healthier.

    Alton Brown can go suck a fatty. It's not Buffalo's fault his people made shit recommendations for places to get wings while he was here. BTW, his show was f***king terrible.

      For the record, in his early days, Alton was one of my heroes and inspired me to be a better cook and to understand what cooking is on a scientific level, marrying food and science in a way that made both better. Now he's just an elitist, nasty old man who has spent too many years buying into his own hype. It's heartbreaking.

    That man taught me at least 50% of what I know about food. I'm not talking about how to cook, but about food. Good Eats was amazing, because you don't walk away with a recipe. You walk away with insight.
    Any other show would teach you how to make hot chocolate, Altons show taught you how to make chocolate. Who invented chocolate. When it's best used. What to look for in quality. Why it's ideal for a hot dairy based beverage. It was was like understanding ingredients, was *way* more important, than the recipes you use them in.
