Ultimate Bisquick CookBook
For almost 80 years families have been relying on Bisquick to
help make baking just a little bit easier. There is a whole
lot more to this simple mix than just quick biscuits. As the
decades have passed, the number of uses for Bisquick have
grown. No longer do we need to make a crust for our pies, we
can make Impossibly Easy Pies. When you need a quick dinner
or dessert, you will find what you need in this collection.
For me the best thing about Bisquick is the speed factor, the
number of ingredients required are reduced and that means
less mess too (which is always a good thing). Versatility is
excellent as well since there is a Bisquick recipe for
everything from Appetizers to Dessert.
If you are looking for healthier recipes never fear there is
a Bisquick for you as well. Between the Heart Healthy
Bisquick and the Reduced Fat Bisquick, there are plenty of
healthy bisquick recipes to enjoy.
Ultimate Bisquick CookBook has over 280 recipes. Beginning with
the history (Bisquick Decades of Great Taste), Q & A and Basics
for Pancakes, Waffles, Muffins, Biscuits, Dumplings and
Shortcakes) information, the recipes sections start with the
Bisquick Through the Decades and Favorite Recipes for Today.
The remaining recipes categories include Day Brighter
Breakfasts, Savory Appetizers, Snacks and Breads, Comforting
Casseroles and Oven Meals, 30-Minute Weeknight Dinners, Heart
Smart Cooking for Two, Impossibly Easy Pies and Pizzas and
Delicious Desserts, Cookies and Bars. Ending up with
Healthful Nutrition and Cooking Information this collection
has all of your favourites (and many more recipes which will
soon become family favourties).
The full page photos are mouthwatering, the reproductions of
vintage Bisquick advertising are terrific fun and the Quick
Tips are very helpful. Each recipe includes the Prep and
Start to Finish times and Per Serving nutritional
