  2. Meal planning
    I received a brownie in a jar mix for a thank you at Christmas. It was so easy to make and it gave me the idea of making mixes (as we bake everything from scratch) to make it easier come baking times. I bought some mason jars (as I gave out some brownie mixes for Christmas) and I'm using some...
  3. Frugal Recipes, Leftovers, Budget Meals
    Everytime I go to the grocery store I see a lot of mixes that look convenient but have a lot of ingredients that I can't pronounce. And I've decided if I can't pronounce it, I probably don't need to put it in my body. I've also decided that I could probably create some of these mixes at home...

  9. Question and Answer
    I have a question about baking from scratch that is probably a no brainer but here goes. I bake everything from scratch. Can I mix the dry ingredients for say a chocolate cake and store it in canning jars or some kind of airtight container with a label on it and then just add the wet...
  10. Question and Answer
    I just bought a box of "Basic 4" and I'm dismayed to find it has sugar, brown sugar, malt syrup, corn syrup, TSP and the usual chemical preservatives in it. I think I'm perfectly capable of buying organic corn flakes and adding my own puffed rice, sliced almonds, raisins, and dried cranberries...
  11. Just Tips
    If you want to make a boxed cake mix taste much better and less like a store bought mix, add 1 cup of sour cream to the batter. Once you have mixed all the dry and wet ingredients together, add the sour cream, continue to mix as usual. It will puff up a little more but don't worry, it will end...
