Note from Lucy: I have used the all purpose mix many times and it is great. Make up a batch and give it a try. Take a look at the Real Food For Real People webpage, listed on my sidebar and look for her ebook of recipes using the All Purpose Mix. This book is great for everyday use. She also has booklets with recipes for jar mixes - cookie mixes- bar and brownie mixes- cake mixes and others. These are great for inexpensive gift giving.......

I've used a similar recipe and loved it. It makes great "Cheddar Bay Biscuits" like they serve at Red Lobster. Add a little cheese and some garlic butter....mmmm....

Hi Lucy ~~ Thank you for sharing your recipes and the link to Real Food for Real People - I will check it out.

I am so glad that you have three close friends that you consider angels, as I am sure they feel the same way. Our cups surely do runneth over!! Take care, Love, Merle.

I like Mac and Cheese.

But I was thinking of MacDonald's Double Cheesburgers when I clicked that link.

Maybe we should come up with some recipes using the DC's. I have one use, when a friend is serving a meatless dish, just stop on your way by and get a DC. Then crumble the meat (cheese too if it is appropriate) into the chili, or what have you.

You really get your $1's worth that way! You can even treat the dog with a little tastey bun.

Hi Thanks for stopping by Lucy and your kind words about my old kitty. Sorry you lost yours too, it's hard but I know that's life and thankfully I have my other two monsters to keep me busy! They are mad today as it is raining hard and thundering so can't go out, same with the horses they are pouting but I will put them out when it clears up.

I have to make bread today for someone. Love your recipes. I too have put the cheddar cheese and garlic on bisquits like Red Lobster and they are yummy! I love mac and cheese especially if it has something added to it like ham.

I'm suffering with allergies too. You gotta love post nasal drip! lol! :o)

Great idea for baking mix (instead of Bisquik which is so pricey!)
I used to get the Real Food for Real People Newsletter but it stopped for some reason. Thanks for the link.

25 mac & cheese recipes??!!
I like mac & cheese a lot, but 25 recipes just might be overkill.

I love these kinds of mixes, but they are basically a thing of the past for me since I can't have the powdered milk (allergic to dairy). Unless you know of a dairy free version? That would be the best. :D
