Baking Basics

Let me share some baking basic recipes and tips to help get you set up. Don’t feel fearful of the kitchen. It is a magical place, and with some help you can conquer all the recipes your heart desires.

With baking basics, I wanted to share basic recipes. Like how to make homemade Bisquick, this is just like what you buy, but for a fraction of the cost.

Another delicious option is an Instant Pot cream cheese. You can use the cream cheese to spread on bagels, make a dip with it, and more.

Baking Basics – Freezer Meals

I also walk you through how to make Instant Pot Freezer Meals. This is a wonderful way to stock your freezer and simplify dinners all through the month.

Freezer meals are a great way for me to simplify my life, and spending an hour or so prepping all the meals helps tremendously for busy weeknights.
