Crazy Mixes

Chris thinks I'm crazy.  He came home today to find that I had made homemade laundry detergent.  He said in his wildest dreams, he never would have thought that is what I would be doing today.   Chris thinks I've gone off the deep end.  But, this really isn't that absurd for me.  When the boys were babies, I made homemade baby wipes.   
But, I didn't stop there.  I made Cream of Something Soup Mix, Taco Seasoning Mix, Dry Onion Soup Mix, Chocolate Cake Mix, Cornbread Mix, and Tortilla Mix. And, I have homemade pancake and muffin mix that I use all the time.  Of course, I've never actually made homemade tortillas before.  No excuses now:  I have a mix!  I need to figure out which type of containers I like best.  If you go to the blogs with the original recipes you'll see all matchy and cute containers.  Oh, well.  I just gotta be me!  I'll have to remember to tell all of you how these work out later.  If you want copies of my recipes, just ask or go look at my pins on Pinterest.


  1. Yuck! The chocolate cake mix was bad. The cake turned out flat, hard, dry, and not very chocolaty. Good thing, I only made enough mix for 1 cake on that one.

  2. I'm still tinkering with a Taco seasoning mix. Try Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen website for more mix recipes. There are quite a few listed. I have a friend who makes her own deo as well.

    I know Carley makes laundry detergent. If your recipe doesn't work well, get hers.
