Mixes are the best cooking shortcut of all. It’s strange that so many people are convinced that to be a “good cook,” you need to make everything from scratch. In my opinion, a good cook knows when they can take shortcuts like Bisquick recipes or cake mix recipes to get the food on the table faster. It’s just smarter to go the easy route!
Boxed mixes like Bisquick are such time-savers and they eliminate a lot of messy measuring, too. Why stand there measuring out baking powder and flour and sugar separately when you can just scoop some cake mix into a bowl? It takes the measuring and/or guesswork out of it, and then you can get to the fun part like adding flavors or assembling your recipe.
Of course, you also save some money using mixes. Buying all those separate ingredients can be pricey. When you’re on a budget, it can make a difference to avoid buying a bunch of baking supplies you don’t really need. On the other hand, it’s also fine if you like making your own baking mix… these recipes will still work with a Bisquick substitute!
