Quick Mix – Muffins

Source: Diet for a Small Planet
Date: December 27, 2017
Yield: approximately 2 quarts mix, 1 dozen muffins
Time needed: 25 minutes

Several of my cookbooks have a recipe for a baking mix which can used to make pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, etc. in a jiffy.  Quick Mix is one of these.  Of course, a well-prepared cook would have made the mix a week or more ago and just need to reach into the fridge for it.  Bulk food sections often have similar commercial mixes. But if you would like to make your own, here is the recipe. The soy flour, instant dry milk and wheat germ make this a protein-packed mix.

I found the plain basic muffins rather tasteless and regretted that I had not tried one of the optional additions.

Spaghetti for Peanuts

Yield:4 servings
Time needed: 45 minutes

This was a complete flop with the family. Sounds good on paper, but although I love black olives, they detracted from this dish, as did the sauce. A simple oil & garlic dressing might have been much better.

A quick refreshing drink, but not a flavour combination I find appealing. I used yogurt. I may try again with buttermilk to see if that is an improvement.
