"I found this in one of the magazines I subscribe to, Cooking for Two. There are several other mixes like this here at Zaar, but this one has several other ingredients and is much more and I like it. The variations are posted below."

"Wonderful! Here's how I adjusted it. I prefer not to use powdered milk as it is a source of glutamate (MSG), which my husband and one son are sensitive to. So, I left that out, and replaced the instant mashed potatoes with the same measurement of freshly ground whole wheat flour. I store the mix in the freezer to ensure the flour doesn't go rancid. When preparing, use half water and half milk for the liquid, or even all milk for a richer taste. I also add a couple of Tbsps of butter to the liquid and prepare it on the stovetop rather than in the microwave."
"I love this recipe!! I use it all the time. I originally found it in that same magazine. I'm so glad you posted it now I can save it to my zaar cookbook and not have to search my magazines for it."
"I made this today to make a chicken recipe.There are so many recipes using canned soup that are fantastic,but my DH can't tolerate MSG and this recipe is exactly what I needed.Thank you for posting.I also started getting the magazine Cooking for 2. Happy cooking! Rita I have been using this mix instead of canned soup and it works all the time.I made a batch this morning and want to include some pictures. Sage/Rita"

"This is the best thing since sliced bread (as Grandma used to say)!! And what a dollar-saver this is! Thanks for this wonderful post!!"
"I made this yesterday and then tried it out for supper. LOVED IT!! I usually can't cook unless I have a "cream of" something close by. Thanks for a great recipe. The taste was amazing! "
