Make a Mix Recipes - These are oh so good!

Hi Friends,
My sweet reader friend, Tanya, from over at Sew Many Dreams sent me these great homemade mix recipes.  I am so excited to share them with you.  Homemade is so much better than the premix store kind and it is a savings $$$ too!

Tanya also has posted on her blog a Better Bisquick recipe which I am lovin because I often use Bisquick in my meals as it is so quick and easy.  How handy to make up a large batch ahead of time to have on hand.  Again, this is a HUGE savings!  One more savings tip I have for you, when you make these big batches of things like this Better Bisquick or cake mixes etc., get your flour at Sams club or Costco.  You can get a 25 pound bag and it is just pennies in comparison to the grocery store.  I think you can even get a 50 pound bag, but that is too much for me.  25 pounds works just right for our family.

Be sure to pop over to Sew Many Dreams and say Hello to Tanya and check out that Bisquick recipe.  It's the perfect thing to have on hand.
Below are Tanya's recipes.  Thank you so much Tanya for sending them to me.  You are the best!!!

Happy Homemaking Everyone,
Hugs and Blessings,

Here are Tanya's recipes:
This is a taco seasoning recipe, given to me by one of the moms in my son's playgroup. Really good.

Taco Seasoning Recipe

1/4 cup dried onions

1/4 cup chili powder

1 Tbsp salt

4 tsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp cumin

1 Tbsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp beef bouillon

1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Mix and store. use 2 Tbsp/ 1lb ground beef

Chicken or Pork Rub Recipe

This is another favourite mix to use as a rub on chicken or pork. Simply mix ingredients and store in a small jar. Makes enough paste for three small whole chickens. I like to cut the chickens into parts before rubbing with paste. Let marinate several hours before cooking.

3 3/4 T paprika (regular or smoked)
1 1/2 T coarse salt

1 T garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp black pepper

1 1/2 tsp onion powder

1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 1/2 tsp dried sage (or oregano for beef)

1 1/2 tsp dried thyme

6 T olive oil

Thanks for the shout-out! Hope you enjoy these.

I made biscuits for a friend who came over for breakfast this morning and she asked if the mix could be made with whole wheat flour. I'm not sure if they would be as light and airy, but I'm definitely going to try at least a partial substitution.
