When I started off blogging, I was totally into using shortcuts and mixes to amp up recipes. I saw nothing wrong with it. Then there became a sort of food blogger revolution where everyone HATED cake mix/pancake mix/anything pre-made and went insane to prove they never used it. There were actually little badges people put on their blogs to that effect. Seriously. So I guess I was guilted into thinking that every mix is bad, and that I should make everything from scratch.
Well, no. I’m sorry but… just no. Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.
I love, love, love, love making cakes and breads and cookies and pies from scratch. I’ll do it all day. However I am not above using a pancake mix or a frozen pie crust if I have to/choose to. And yeah- sometimes I make cakes with cake mix, since Jay loves it. So what?
