I would love to see more recipes with ALL natural ingredients. I prefer to cook & bake from scratch. If anyone could help me, it would be deeply appreciated.

I use Advanced Search to do this. Say you want to bake some chicken, tell AR you want chicken, but don't want condensed. This will filter all the recipes that call for condensed soups. Because I can't eat gluten, I've learned to make my own dry mixes for things like ranch dressing and such. I made pizza sauce from scratch last night and it was very tasty. Those recipes and others like them are now part of my pantry staples and I keep them here in my recipe box. I've found a lot of substitute recipes here, from many great cooks. In fact, searching for the word MIX will bring up over 6000 recipes, most of them made-from-scratch alternatives to boxes and packets. Advanced search may be your new best friend.

I meant to write that you will filter OUT all the recipes that call for condensed soup. If this isn't the kind of information you're seeking, let us know. There are thousands of scratch recipes here. It's just a matter of knowing how to find them.
