Saturday BONUS: How to make your own bisquick mix

Found a fabulous site that teaches you how to "make your own" stuff. Things like sour cream, Worcestershire Sauce, butter, condensed milk, shake n bake, Bisquick, and get this...BOLOGNA. :0) Some of these ideas can save you quite a bit of money. Here's a mix I have used for several recipes, that will save us big bucks over the long haul because we use it a lot. It's a recipe for bisquick mix. Check it out.

Homemade Bisquick Mix

8 cups flour
1 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1/4 cup baking powder
1 Tbs. salt
2 cups shortening

Step One: Combine flour, milk, baking powder, and salt.
Step Two: Cut in shortening. I use a potato masher. This step takes a little bit. The idea is to get the shortening to the point of looking like cornmeal.
Step Three: Store in a tightly closed container in a cool place.
Step Four: Use anywhere Bisquick or other biscuit baking mix is called for. Here's a shot of the waffles I made using our baking mix.
