|My Make-Ahead mixes|
Basically, you get a giant bowl and large quantities of your ingredients out, mix them together in said bowl, and store it all. Pretty simple...most times a bit messy....but completely and totally convenient (and worth it).
|Knowing that I'll be making cakes this time of year as well, I have a cake mix pre-made on the far left.|
It has now been a month, and I can say that it does save time, and money. I am really adjusting my mindset to recognize that making everything from scratch takes time... but when I was able to throw together delicious chocolate chip cookies in 3 minutes (thanks to my mix), I was oh-so-pleased.
And in case you are interested in doing such a thing, the cookbook my mom gave me is below. I'm quite smitten with it.
