I haven't used breastmilk in cooking, but I did use formula to make macaroni and cheese once when I ran out of milk.

I think it's funny a lot of women say, "Eww" to breastmilk.  So, it's good enough for your baby, but it's not good enough for you?  I won't give my kids anything I wouldn't eat or drink myself.

That is just not right it's only for your baby but I do mix it in baby cereal for my baby.

I know its human milk,but would like it if someone made gravy with their own saliva? I think most people like to be displaced from their food (if that makes sense).

Some of my children's meals have been prepared with breastmilk if any of them were feeling under the weather and needed the extra nutrition, OR we were out of milk. Human milk for human children!
