What is Jiffy mix?

    Blair, I really appreciate your groupings of your Jiffy Mix, Bisquik, and cake mix, recipes. Some people may think using mixes is cheating but I say , “All right, I’m a cheater with no apologies!” As you know, I’m older and have health problems and if I don’t get a leg-up with convenience products, then a lot of my cooking is just not going to happen at all. Thanks so much!

      We’re so glad you find it helpful, Marion! There’s nothing wrong with a few shortcuts if you ask us!

  2. Marion says:

    You know, I have a request. Would it be possible to make up a pantry item list out of your recipes? You know, things that you use very frequently and like to keep on hand. Lots of times, I don’t have immediate plans for what I want to make but I like to buy standard things as I go along so I can be prepared. I’m working on a list for myself from your recipes but I sure could use some help! Thanks so much!

    1. The Seasoned Mom says:

      Hi Marion,
      We will keep this in mind with future posts and see what we can do!
