So I had to go look for this, because...well. Chee-tos are an amazingly guilty pleasure involving more carcinogenic orange junk and saturated fat that are just...not good eats, right? So these are baking right now.

Homemade Cheesy Poofs

1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (about 1/4 lb, or +/- 115 mg)
1/2 cup (60g by weight) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (60g by weight) butter or margarine, softened well
pinch salt

In a bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. I had to knead a bit to get it to hold together. Roll into 3/4-in (2 cm). balls. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 F (205 C) degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.

Annnnd they're done. (It's like food TV magic! *whirls to oven where the finished food is*)

Are they anything like Chee-tos? No. I added garlic powder and a little cayenne pepper, and I imagine you could add anything you want, really, or play with different cheeses like shredded (not grated) parmesan, etc.

Conversions came from here.

So this was another thing I had in mind: the bazillionty-one uses for simple, random household items like Bounce dryer sheets and baking soda. It falls under DIY, I think; in a pinch (haha, okay, that was totally unintentional), regular household items can take the place of more expensive or toxic products.

Today, I give you salt, from Reader's Digest.

If anyone has any more tips or ideas, I'd be happy to post them with credit.
