Why Bother? Challenge 2012

There are some things that you think, "Why bother making this, when I can get it from the store?"  Like, why would I make my own sausage when it comes in all these delicious flavors in the meat case?  Or, why bother making my own crackers when Ritz makes one fine butter cracker?  It's these questions that I plan to answer.  Is it worth making your own?

Using all of your suggestions, the 2012 calendar has been prepared and the challenge is ready.  The Wilde Kitchen presents...
