You know I'm not a from-scratch girl. More like a semi-homemade woman. I take lots of shortcuts (in the kitchen and in life) but one thing I loathe is store-bought croutons.

This is when you say scream "AMEN!").
Semi-homemade croutons are a cinch. Of course they are only semi-homemade if you are using store-bought bread. If you use your (my) leftover Challah then you can really give yourself a sash and crown yourself domestic diva of the day. Am looking for my tiara now.
