Ultimate Bisquick CookBook – Review

For almost 80 years families have been relying on Bisquick to help make baking just a little bit easier. There is a whole lot more to this simple mix than just quick biscuits. As the decades have passed, the number of uses for Bisquick have grown. No longer do we need to make a crust for our pies, we can make Impossibly Easy Pies. When you need a quick dinner or dessert, you will find what you need in this collection.

For me the best thing about Bisquick is the speed factor, the number of ingredients required are reduced and that means less mess too (which is always a good thing). Versatility is excellent as well since there is a Bisquick recipe for everything from Appetizers to Dessert.

If you are looking for healthier recipes never fear there is a Bisquick for you as well. Between the Heart Healthy Bisquick and the Reduced Fat Bisquick, there are plenty of healthy bisquick recipes to enjoy.

Ultimate Bisquick CookBook has over 280 recipes. Beginning with the history (Bisquick Decades of Great Taste), Q & A and Basics (for Pancakes, Waffles, Muffins, Biscuits, Dumplings and Shortcakes) information, the recipes sections start with the Bisquick Through the Decades and Favorite Recipes for Today.

The remaining recipes categories include Day Brighter Breakfasts, Savory Appetizers, Snacks and Breads, Comforting Casseroles and Oven Meals, 30-Minute Weeknight Dinners, Heart Smart Cooking for Two, Impossibly Easy Pies and Pizzas and Delicious Desserts, Cookies and Bars. Ending up with Healthful Nutrition and Cooking Information this collection has all of your favourites (and many more recipes which will soon become family favourties).

The full page photos are mouthwatering, the reproductions of vintage Bisquick advertising are terrific fun and the Quick Tips are very helpful. Each recipe includes the Prep and Start to Finish times and Per Serving nutritional information.

Enjoy this tasty recipe from Comforting Casseroles and Oven Meals.
