SOS Mix: DIY Cream of Anything Soup

(Soup or Sauce) SOS Mix
Save all kinds of time, money, and lose the preservatives, by making your own condensed cream of anything soup mix. We call it, SOS Mix!  Mix the dry ingredients together.  Mix 1/3 cup of mix with 1-1/4 cups of cold water and cook until thick.  One recipe makes enough sauce to replace 9 (10.5-ounce) cans of soup and it's gluten free and low-carb.  I think you will love having it on hand.  Be sure to scroll down to print a free pantry label.

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce
Years ago I was introduced to fresh cheese tortellini with Alfredo sauce at a lovely restaurant at London's Heathrow Airport. I've been a big fan ever since.  I don't indulge too often, but I'm often tempted to.  Cheesy, rich, and classic, this copycat, Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce, is the easiest sauce you will ever make!  I cringe at the pricey bottled  stuff at the market.  Even if you think you can't cook, you can make this divine sauce in …

Healthier Chocolate No Bake Cookies Recipe

Healthier Chocolate No-Bake Cookie Recipe
Yum! Chocolate no-bake cookies! Raise your hand if grew up eating no-bake cookies! We sure did. If I recall, it was one of my brother's very favorite cookies in fact.
