A Mix for Everything?

I've been interested in trying out making mixes to keep on hand for things we cook regularly. I researched some recipes and decided to give it a try this past weekend.
I made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie mix, enough for 4 or 5 big batches. I made Brownie mix, also enough for 5 batches of brownies. When we are ready to bake these, we will just need to add eggs and butter.
I also made a mixture that is meant to replace cream soup mixes in recipes. It has powdered milk and cornstarch as well as several herbs, dried onions and bouillion in it. I think this will be very convenient to have on hand. I made a potato soup mix that can be prepared one bowl at a time. Should be great for lunches!
And finally, I made a Toffee Coffee mixture that really is very tasty! I sat down with a hot cup after all my hard work!


  1. I've done this type of thing as gifts for people, but never thought of keeping a stock for myself .... great idea!

  2. Marg, some of the recipes are actually those gifts in a jar things. I just tripled or quadrupled the ingredients to make a large quantity!
