My husband and kids would say macaroni and cheese. They prefer Kraft.

I would say anything deep fried. I donít make it at home, and if I did, it wouldnít be as good as a restaurant can make it.

Me too, homemade macaroni and cheese is one of the few pasta dishes I've never liked - way too heavy and gluey.

I'm with you on fried food! See my post about setting fire to my kitchen in the disasters thread.

No I didn't miss the point. The title is "something you prefer NOT homemade", not "something you prefer not to make homemade." And I (and lots of others) certainly don't define pizza as something I choose to eat because I don't want to cook. Pizza, in fact, is pretty far down, with the exception of wood or coal fired oven, on our choices of things to get out/delivered as noted in my original post. I personally prefer not to pay for something that is not good and I really don't want to eat unless we chose to drive to the closest coal-fired oven place that's about 20 minutes away.



Onto the original question of this thread, another thing I prefer to get out and forgot about, fried chicken as others have mentioned. I make pretty good fried chicken, made some the other night in fact. BUT, with the mess it makes, as well as cost/benefit ratio especially when on sale at our local supermarket, which actually does a pretty good job, I prefer to get the fried chicken out and make the sides myself.

I have never attempted a cracker (although I was very impressed when I watched contestants on 'The Great British Baking Show' and was very impressed)

A crusty French baguette

Tortillas

Sfogliatella

Apple strudel
I used to make crackers at home. I got started when I tried to make hummus but didn't have tahini. I blended sesame seeds, but they were gritty in the final hummus. I added flour, spread it thin, and baked up a tasty batch of crackers. I made others from recipes, but now live near stores and don't have to make do.

Ditto for croissants. I like the ones from Costco, and I wouldn't even attempt to make them at home. I know how, but I'll pass on that huge production.

Bagels, I've make at home and they were lovely. I'll buy because it is easier, but the home made ones are superior. ( baked anything is superior fresh out of the oven)
