What are some things that you've learned to cook that you used to buy pre-made (including canned or frozen)?  What was your main reason for making the switch? (Healthier ingredients, tastes better, cheaper, etc..)

Tonight I made sloppy joes with my own sloppy joe sauce instead of using canned manwich, which feels totally embarrassing but my mom never used anything but the can and I didn't realize how damned easy it was just to make it yourself.  I hardly ever make sloppy joes anyway but every once in awhile I have a hankering for it because it reminds me of being a kid (yay for comfort food).  It isn't really much cheaper but it tastes a lot better and depending on how you do it, has a lot fresher & healthier ingredients.

I also recently discovered that making your own tortillas and pita was super easy (even though mine are never round) and there is nothing like a fresh made tortilla.
