Sometimes you just don’t have time. You can’t bake a cake from scratch. You can’t make a 3 course meal (or 2-course, or even 1) You can’t complete your project of the day. You just can’t. Because you are too busy or too tired. Because you just don’t feel like it. And sometimes because you are needed elsewhere. Like with a friend nursing a particularly painful heartache. That will always be more important.
So for those times that you need to bake but you have minimal time and energy, here are my two saving graces. Baking from a mix. Gasps of horror. I know, I know. Ghiradelli double chocolate brownie mix (you know my obsession from these and these) and these baked-not-fried, ready in a few minutes, Stonewall Donut mix (i made minis with sprinkles):
Need a great gift idea? Pair this mix with a bakers kit like my sister Jodie created. Check out more details here.
