I've worn out a couple of the first set of 2 physical Make-a-Mix cookbooks. This is a combination of those and well worth purchasing.
This is the best premise out there for make ahead cookery. You don't make entire dishes, you make basic mixes. This means endless options depending on what's on sale, who you're cooking for, whim. You also get instructions in each Master Mix recipe for how to package and store them.
This book goes further than quick (biscuit) mix into things as All Purpose Ground Beef mix, Sweet Quick Bread mix, Snack Cake mix, All Purpose Cookie mix, Cubed Pork mix, Mexican Meat mix (not what you think and superb) to name just a few. It has salad dressing mixes, spice mixes-no need to buy expensive Sloppy Joe or Spaghetti Sauce seasoning mixes...there are so many.
Then there are the very adaptable recipes listed with each mix for easy reference. Most recipes have several variations following the basic recipe.
The beginning of the book has information on equipment, ingredients, methods and how to adapt for your taste.
The ONLY, and, admittedly upsetting, downside to the Kindle version of this book is it's absolutely terrible indexing. To find recipes you have to use the "go to" or "search" features. The index doesn't have page numbers for individual recipes, just names. It's still worth the purchase.
I have the physical and Kindle versions of this book and the physical version of the original Make-a-Mix and More Make-a-Mix cookbooks.
These are simply the best out there.
Make-A-Mix is really two cookbooks in one. The cookbook begins with 67 make-ahead shortcut mixes for everything from all-purpose cake mix to meatball mix. These can be made on a weekend-or whenever there's free time-and used to speed food preparation on busy days. The mixes are a key ingredient in one or more of the 306 recipes that follow. The kitchen-tested recipes run the gamut from breakfast dishes to after-dinner treats. They include hearty dinner entrees, like enchilada casserole, onion pot roast, and shrimp & vegetable stir-fry; international fare like green chili burritos and quick chow mein; soups and other appetizers, like New England clam chowder, and even freezer treats like fruit slush. With the Make-A-Mix method, home cooks can control the amount of sugar, salt, and preservatives in a recipe, and save money on store-bought mixes. This cookbook is the updated and expanded version of Make-A-Mix that sold over a million copies.
