I got this “base-of-many” recipe from Taste of Home magazine & have made it a staple in my baking cabinet. The tag line “save time in the kitchen with a multitasking mix that makes baking from scratch a snap” perked my interest. I enjoy making as much as I can from scratch, partially because I like to know what’s going into the food my family eats but also because it’s usually helps the dollar stretch further! I can’t thank Tami Christman (the author of this recipe) enough for sharing it. Now to nail down how to make my biscuits light & fluffy every time! Once I get that sorted, I’ll post the biscuit recipe. Until then, I’ll just post the easy baking mix & a chocolate chip scone recipe (hope that’ll tide you over because it may be a while on the biscuits:))
