biscuit mix

Have you been wanting to learn how to make your own biscuit mix as much as I have? Don’t you just love the smell of biscuits coming out of the oven? You can make them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I have this recipe that I found in my mother’s recipe box shown below, and so I wanted to share it today. My mother was very frugal when I was growing up and made most everything from scratch. Of course, back then they didn’t have all the processed and boxed convenience foods available at the grocery stores today. I like most everything from scratch and I love homemade biscuits! PRINTABLE recipe at the bottom of the post.

granola recipes

Here are some of the best granola recipes in the world, I promise. I love making granola from scratch over buying the ready made. It’s fresh and I know what the ingredients are. I must confess, if I have some candy like, M & M’s in the house I may or may not throw a handful into some of these granola recipes below, just saying. I love grabbing a handful and eating a few morsels of all of these granola recipes. Here’s the deal, you can add Craisins, raisins, different nuts, chocolate chips or extra shredded coconut. Man, this is making me so hungry, I need to grab a bowl and make some in the morning. Sure, having lots of sweets added may not make these the healthiest for you, but the base ingredients are really good for you. You might even consider leaving the sweet stuff out, that’s ok, the granola will still taste great and make for a pleasant treat. Try some granola in place of buttered popcorn, chips and salsa, cookies and other between meals food. Give these recipes a try, you’ll be glad you did!

organize your pantry
,

I’m going to show you how to organize your pantry on the cheap. I’m often asked, “How can I store my food storage when my pantry is so small?” This is my small pantry in the kitchen area, and it’s really small. I have a small home so that’s what I got. I knew I had to do something because I could not store all the main staples I use on a weekly basis to prepare meals. I was fortunate to know a company right here in Southern Utah who would cut shelves for me. I must say they cut several shelves for areas throughout my house. They cost about $2.00 for each shelf. They have white laminate on particle board, and that works for me!

baked mac and cheese
,

How to make the best baked mac and cheese recipe is on today’s post. I really like making this recipe because I can make all of it with food storage. I can also make it with freshly grated cheese. It smells fabulous baking in the oven. You can make it with whole milk or skim milk. You can even make it with different cheeses, fresh or freeze-dried. As I remember, this was a family reunion recipe, so yes, you could feed your large family. It freezes well after baking in smaller containers. This is a great item for school lunches as well if you have a thermos type container to keep it hot.

peanut butter cookies

I’m showing you how to make the best peanut butter cookies ever today! It’s my sister-in-law Pat’s peanut butter cookie recipe with Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses. Now they make dark chocolate kisses! Love it! This is really a tribute to her for being an awesome Aunt to my girl’s when they were growing up in Utah, and into their adult life as well. Pat turned 77 this year, she would always have a treat for them when we would go visit her. I still remember her using her apron to wipe their noses because they had fallen outside and came in crying. She always had her arms open to love everyone. I have a PRINTABLE recipe for you below.

store vinegar

I have 35 reasons why you should store vinegar, any kind of vinegar. I’m updating this post from some old articles I have written. Here’s the deal with vinegar, white vinegar or cider vinegar are both fairly cheap to buy and will store indefinitely. You need to be aware that not all vinegar will store forever. They are acidic and therefore will store a lot longer than any oils, but keep in mind they will ferment. I know, because I have purchased some flavored balsamic vinegar and after a few years they are too strong for me to put on my bread or salads.
