making a mix from scratch...
Baking from a mix is convenient, yes? What if you have a great recipe that uses a mix, but you don't have a mix on hand? Just make the mix from scratch! OK, this actually sounded a little crazy to me, but when I found myself without baking mix, I decided to give it a try.
There are all kinds of recipes for baking mix or bisquick recipes, so I just chose one. It was easy, and it worked very well. I have made Cheeseburger Pie as well as Peanut Butter Cookies with it. Plus I have plenty ready for the next recipe.
The next "mix" that I plan on trying is cake mix. This came to mind when Sonia mentioned not being able to get yellow cake mix. So I thought, I bet you can make it. Sure enough, a quick search for "make your own cake mix" turns up all kinds of things. What a great idea!
