do you have a pancake mix recipe? this sounds like a no brainer, but i would like to just be able to add milk and possibly an egg and have breakfast in 10 minutes.

The instant oatmeal recipe link and taco seasoning link appear to be, well, linked. I’m looking for the oatmeal recipe for my kiddos. I want to know where it comes from, so thank you for posting. :-)

Sorry, it does that sometimes! Here’s the right link for Homemade Oatmeal Packets.

I’m looking for mixes to replace dry soup mixes that are often used in pot roast and meatloaf. My daughter has to eat gluten-free, but all mixes for gravy, onion soup, etc. contain gluten, of course, and GF mixes are hard to find and outrageously expensive. I just need a mix that I can modify with cornstarch or GF flour. Anything you can offer would be great, thanks.

I’m actually working on a recipe for Onion Soup Mix now so keep your eye out!

Amanda –
Its hard to find any corn products today that are non-GMO so maybe you should look for something with arrowroot as a thickener.
I know the issue was gluten but I like to help steer people away from things with GMO ingredients whenever I can.

Hey, do you have a recipe for spiced cider/Mullen spices? I make one that is all liquid, but I want one where I can have a dry mix and just add to apple juice or tea by the glass.

I don’t have a mix version but I do have this recipe for Mulled Apple Cider and you could just put together the dry ingredients.

Hi, My name is Jackie. My family and I have recently moved to West Texas. We have moved from a little two bed room home to a 24 foot long camper. That’s a big difference! lol We are hoping to start building a cabin in the next few months. We would like to be more self sufficient. It just takes a lot of money and hard work to do this but we enjoy every minute! Yet it has been very challenging but rewarding. I have enjoyed reading your blog and would like to know if you have any more homemade mixes. I wish you luck in your journey and hope to hear from you!

thanks, Jackie

This is all we have posted right now but I have more post ideas for mix recipes :)

Do you have a mix recipe for italian dressing? I use those packets a lot in cooking but would like a healthier choice for my hubby with high blood pressure. I love your web site.
Thank you,
Cheryl Shelton

Do you have a recipe for a country gravy mix. Sometimes I’m in a hurry and I use the just add water mix. It’s okay, but would like to make my own.


17 Merissa August 27, 2014 at 8:14 am

I don’t yet, I will have to work on it!

I love making my own seasoning mixes. I have looking for a fajita seasoning mix. But the link isn’t working. :(
thanks Sherrie
