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.

    THE book on making mixes!

    I have the 2 original (I think) volumes published many years ago and then I bought the one that is copyrighted 2003. I use both of them often and the recipes all work exactly the way they are represented. The only negative comment I have is that the 2003 and the 2006 editions are identical except for the covers and publishers! So that was a little disappointing. However my 2003 edition is well used.

    Make-A-Mix

    I have owned several editions of this book since it was first written.

    I prefer the newer editions of this book.

    Still awesome after all these years!

    This is the one cookbook I bought for myself when I left Mom's, and keep replacing! Make the mixes on the weekend with the kids' help, and use
    them in the recipes during the week. It's a snap!

    My fav recipe is I think the Icebox cookies. They're refrigerator cookies with lots of spice, very addicting! I give them away every year for Christmas. The Mexican meat mix is great too.

    TIME SAVER!

    I am looking forward to trying some of these! I love to do make ahead meals, it saves me so much time when I get home from work. I get very little time with my boyfriend due to our work schedules, this is going to help keep the little time we do get from being taken over by cooking!

    I was given a copy of this in the 1980s.... and it 's one of the few cookbooks I've kept all these years.  Excellent resource for saving money while feeding a family.  My kids would help me make a big  batch of granola and it came out so much healthier, with much more protein than the store bought version.

    Blast from the past

    My mother had this cookbook back in the 70's, and I remember making the taco seasoning mix when I was maybe 11 or 12. Would have been nice if the photography would have been updated.

    I have loved these authors since 1980!

    The best thing about this book is that with a little planning, you can save time and money and have a great variety of meals. The recipe for ministrone soup is delicious. I bought each of my three daughters a soup pot and gave them the recipe for ministrone soup. Yum! I gave the book to a friend for her birthday, but had the spine cut off and had a spiral binding added. Great!

    Save time, save money

    I love this cookbook and have bought it for friends and family. Our family favorite is Mexican Meat Mix which can be used in in 8 recipes from the book. Usually we just cook up some tortillas and throw in the meat mix with the usual condiments on top. We usually use pork instead of the beef. It is delicious!I have tried quite a few other mixes in the book also and have been very pleased with them. We use the main dish mixes most often. I just watch for the meat to go on sale and cook up the mix and throw it in the freezer. I usually have 2-3 main dish meat mixes in the freezer so I can cook a great dinner fast. Good home cooking, comfort meals in a flash. I highly recommend it.
