Any other examples of shit recipes that people always "make"?

That godawful green bean casserole you see in flyover states:
Dump canned green beans in dish. Dump canned cream-of-mushroom-soup on top. bake. Top with "french fried onions" out of a can.
Well, technically it is homemade, because they took ingredients and put them together and baked it themselves.
But, I agree it's shit.
Buying premade crust is an abomination. Not only is store bought crust too thick, but it's also flavorless and never will get flaky enough.
I always make my own pie crusts and fillings, pie isn't hard. Pies are really one of the simplest desserts.
When I make pumpkin pie, I sub ice cold fresh orange juice for the ice water in the crust, and add about 1/4 cup of finely ground toasted walnuts or pecans to the crust. Makes for a great layer of flavor in the crust, instead of the crust just being a filling delivery system.
It's called 'recombinant cuisine,' and it's the mainstay of middle American cooking. Also Canadian. And British. And Irish. And Australian. And every other country where English is the dominant language.
Even SG does this shit, but at least the jarred and packaged foods that go into the "homemade" dishes are actually really good and flavourful. Like the common recipe for chilli crab: it's Heinz sambal sauce, Heinz ketchup, A1 seafood rempah, oil, some mud crabs and a bit of water. That's it.
To be fair, he added his own herbs and spices!!!
>buy a steak
>season and cook steak
>have the audacity to claim you made steak for dinner.
>buy various salad vegetables
>mix them together and dress
>have the nerve to say you made salad.
Not sure what you're getting at fåm, how is it not homemade?
>but they didn't make it from scratch
Please show us your grain field, flour mill, tomato crop and cow.
>buy crushed tomatoes, spices in a plastic shell, jarred diced garlic, one (1) yellow onion, store brand olive oil and get this; meat that has been ground by the store!
>combine into a shitty gruel
>have the AUDACITY to call it a meatsauce
LOL THESE FUCKING PLEBES
Get back to me once you learn how to really cook.
Meh. Italians are all over the place around here, I can buy it from 4 different places that I know of. I make bread every couple of months, it's not beyond me, but homemade bread is miles ahead of store bought. Pizza dough though? Not worth the effort to make something that'll be substandard to a restaurants' product either way.
>mfw I love that shit
>be from Indiana
>buy flour milled by someone else at the store
>buy butter churned by a factory from the store
>buy sugar processed at a sugar cane processing plant
>buy eggs laid by a chicken you don't own
>get tap water that was pulled from an underground aquifer with a pump you don't own
>put it together
>have the audacity to call it homemade pastries
i do this, and my friends are always shocked by how much better my chicken alfredo is then theirs.
i keep telling them the trick is to just buy it from trader joes, but they keep getting ragu.
ehhh i mean if you're boiling it down to that
>mixing it with water
>claiming you 'made bread'
thats kind of the point your making. i mean if you wanna say its only cooking if you go all the way to basics i guess you could, but lets be real, even if you bought pre-cooked pizza crust and just threw on your own topping variety, its wildly different and you still made it your own.
though if it makes you happy i suppose we could all say we "put together" our meals from now on.
yeah, jarred pasta sauce, how unthinkable.i always make my own pasta sauce which only takes a day from start to finish.
yeah fuck that, this shit was 4.49 at harris teeter this week and is dank as fuck.
I guess two crimes against God were committed that day.
If you bought flour instead of milling it yourself you did not make your meal.
If you did not butcher the animal for meat you did not make your meal.
If you did not personally harvest and dry the herbs/spices you did not make your meal.
a middle of the country state like nebraska where people in planes fly over. Aka a state with no real redeaming qualities, but even though im a canuck I can tell you the more popular eastern/western/southern states are HOT FUCKING GARBAGE in terms of shitty cities with shitty people compared to most flyovers.
Americans in jew york are truly the worst people i've ever met in my life.
