After the class I returned home to find a delivery from Amazon.com and it was my new Make-A-Mix cookbook. Don't get it confused with the Mix-A-Meal cookbook and class that I attended at Honeyville. Both books have the same idea, making mixes in bulk to save time and money. I have an original copy (1978) of the Make-A-Mix book and I wanted the updated version, so when it showed up on my doorstep yesterday it was confirmation that I needed to make some mixes.

|The updated Make-A-Mix cookbook.|
I am not going to publish the recipes because that would infringe on the rights of the authors, but I suggest you either look this book up at your local library or order one from Amazon. It will save you time and money!! The book starts off with how to put the mixes together and then gives you recipes for using the mixes. (the mixes last about 12 weeks) This is what I plan on making with my mixes above.
Hot Roll Mix
There are many more but those are the ones I want to try first!
-English griddle scones
Many, many more recipes in the book!
Corn Bread Mix
-Corn Bread (I have several meals that I need corn bread for)
There are 328 pages of recipes and ideas and I can't wait to implement them into my daily cooking. I'll do almost anything to make dinner time easier and I hope these mixes are the way to go!!

Onion Soup Mix
2/3 C dehydrated onions
1/2 C beef bouillon (I used Shirley J's)
1/2 C dehydrated butter or margarine (I used Honeyville's powdered butter)
2 T cornstarch
2 t onion powder
2 t parsley flakes
Mix well and store in an airtight container. Use in any dry onion soup recipe. About 1/3 C equals one packet of Lipton soup mix.
Onion Steamed Rice
1 C rice to 3 C water
2 t onion soup mix
Cover and steam 20 minutes or until rice is tender. (I used my rice cooker and did 2 C rice, 3 1/4 C water, and 4 t onion soup mix)
