Wit & Whistle

Cookbook author, and cooking instructor Ivy Manning demonstrates how easy it is to make tasty crackers and spread from fresh, seasonal ingredients. According to Manning, "DIY crackers are a great way to save -- the average box of "gourmet" crackers costs $6, a batch of homemade crackers or crisps costs pennies!" For those looking for more cracker and dip recipe ideas,  Ivy Manning's latest book, Crackers & Dips: 60 Handmade Snacks, is due out Spring of 2013.
