Ode To Lori Bakes

Oh how I love Lori, as I'm standing here 11pm at night, high on Garth Brooks (CD Player, not in person!) and Diet Coke, with the music up way too loud, cooking away. I have the cookies for whoopie pies, I have marshmallows in the fridge, I have peppers in the freezer, I have jars filled with nummy mixes.

Yes, sadly I'm prepping for school starting. I'm hoping to do better this year with a freezer full of food, jars filled with baking mixes.

So tonight I am expressing my love to Lori Bakes, if you have not bought any of her books, then well what are you waiting for. Oh I'm sure you are sitting there, saying, well we are egg free, or corn free, or this or that free. I am standing here telling you, her recipes are beyond so easy to convert. And I do have to convert just about everything I have had to try. And everything has come out awesome.

So my awesome quick tip for those who are busy with kids in school is to make your own mixes and save ten tons of money. Just make sure you mark your jars properly (I know this one all too well).

Put the dry ingredients in a jar, mark the top, I can get these brownies in the oven in less then 5 minutes. It takes all of two minutes to make up 10 mixes. And for next to nothing I have ten brownie mixes.

Check out Lori on Amazon, or her website

I love this idea! If I used real eggs how many would I use? 2?
