LLL Baking Mix

OH good - I was wondering...if you make this mix up do you have to store it in the fridge? You just use oil instead of shortening....wonder if that would work with those "cake mixes" too.....

I didn't. I put it in the pantry. I used olive oil. Of course, if you're going to make a huge amount then you may want to store some of it in the freezer or something. I just made this amount and it kept for a month or so. HTH!

Oh LLL Baking mix, cool!

I have a very old LLL cookbook from when I was a leader. There are recipes I still use regularly.

I hope you enjoyed your soup and are all feeling stronger!

Thanks, Dorothy! I am feeling better today and the kids are all healthy for

My soup was just what I needed. I love chicken soup when I'm feeling poorly and we've had it twice through this illness.

Thanks for writing!
