Can I just say how excited I am for this post?! If you know me at all, I love playing the role of housewife. I like a neat and tidy house and who doesn’t love a home-cooked meal?
Of course, that’s all easy to do now, when it’s just my husband and I. I keep up with the cleaning during the week so we have free weekends and I leave the cooking to him, because let’s face it, he’s pretty good at it.
You can say we have a pretty good system going, but with a little one on the way, let’s face it, the house we have now may look quite different in 2 more months. I’ve come to grips that the house will not be as clean as it is now but one thing that I don’t want to skimp on is meals. It’s WAY cheaper to cook at home, it’s healthier, and to be honest, it tastes way better than any restaurant we go to.
This all brings me to today’s post. I am starting to prepare myself for less time and have been thinking about some freezer meals I can do, crock pot meals, and anything that is quick. My favorite food is breakfast and I often crave pancakes, so this is my attempt at having the home-cooked meal for the mom that just doesn’t have the time.
This can be your substitute for Bisquick. It’s great for making pancakes, waffles, banana bread, quiche, egg casserole or muffins. Or when you’re making dinner like chicken pot pie, taco pie or stew with dumplings. The list really goes on and on so have fun with it.

Makes 2 cups

- 1 tsp. salt
