Makes about 10 cups. Store mixture in clean glass jars with tight-fitting lids. Good for chicken, pork, canned potatoes, and mashed potato puffs. You can remove the quantity of shake and bake you need for a recipe and then add some garlic powder,onion powder, thyme or any seasonings you like, for variety. Directions are given for chicken; adjust the baking time according to the thickness of the meat you are using.
This is a great mix for filling jars for gift-giving at Christmas, or any time! You may also fill little celophane bags that you find in craft stores,and tie them with pretty, festive ribbons. Any way you go, it's sure to please someone! This is a delicious mix, so you may as well make some for yourself too!
Note: This makes about 4 cups. I made this last Christmas, and used Splenda in some of them and it's great.
This taco seasoning is just perfect! I make three or four batches at a time and put them in ziploc bags for convenience. Once you try this you'll never buy a packet of taco seasoning at the grocery store again! MSG gives me a headache, so years ago I went on a quest for a great taco seasoning recipe. This is what I found (I just don't remember where). This will season a pound of ground whatever (or a bag of Morningstar Farms Veggie Crumbles- nobody will ever know it's meat-free). Hope you like it!
I have a co-worker that is addicted to those hot cafe mocha drinks...So for Christmas, last year, I decided to make them their own 'instant' mix...I even bought a 60 oz 'coffee-themed' container (that came with it's own TBSP measure) for them to store it in! A few TBSP of the 'mix' and some hot water and voila! Cafe Mocha!
I found this recipe at frugal recipes. It is different from the others here because it uses chicken or vegetable soup base not bouillon. II just put it in as chicken base, you may use just vegetable soup base or mix the two. It also has less spices, I just add that to my recipe that I am making. Bouillon and soup base are not interchangeable. I am not sure of the exact yield nor is it stated on the frugal recipe site.
I needed a package of ranch salad dressing mix to make Recipe #203830 ...but did I have one? Of course not! Found this recipe on line: I had all the ingredients on hand and went with it! Since there is a dearth of recipes here for dry ranch salad dressing mix, I thought I'd share it! (From: cooksrecipes.com)
Fine Herbs classic French herb seasoning mix is easy to make at home. Make it fresh or used dried herbs and store it for future use. Recipe is easily multiplied, but I recommend making only as much of the dried version as you will use within 1 month so it remains as fresh as possible.
