You can whip up batches of homemade cake mix, Bisquick, Hamburger Helper, dry soups plus a whole lot more…even your own spice and seasoning blends.
Not only are these ideal for stocking up the pantry, many are also suitable for packaging as gifts in a jar (see this page  for more ideas). They also come in handy as a substitution for out-of-stock items when you’re in a pinch.
Here are over 100 goodies you can check out, you’ll find them separated into two groups for easier browsing. I’ve included a few recipes from the Baking Substitutes and Herbs & Spices: Storage Tips Guide  pages.
Lots here folks, enjoy!
PS: This is just the start! As with all collections here on Tipnut, I’ll be adding more goodies as I come across them. You may want to bookmark this page for future reference, it’s sure to come in handy .
