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.

I really appreciate this cookbook. We have a family of eight and I try to use any possible resource to shave time from meal prep, while still using fewer artificial ingredients. This book delivers very useful and tasty salad dressing and other keep-on-hand mixes, but my favorite is the sweet quick bread mix which is uber-convenient. I love the spiced applesauce bread you can make with it; it is great for sharing with my vegan friends. As with any cookbook, I won't use every recipe, but I liked it so much that I purchased it - and I'm very glad I did. Definitely worth checking out.
