homemade croutons only 4 ingredients

Homemade croutons come together quick and easy! All you need are 3 ingredients and a frying pan!  You know how you just take some things for granted as “things you buy” and other items as “things you make?” Croutons were one of those foods that had never even occurred to me to make myself.  It wasn’t until I traveled to Germany on a high school exchange trip that I discovered homemade croutons!

Douse those babies in vinegar and you’re in heaven!  The best … Read More
