Home Made Bisquick Mix:
6 C flour, unbleached
3 TBS Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 TBS salt
3 TBS sugar
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
In a large bowl that will accommodate more than 5 cups of flour, whisk together everything except the butter.
Use a pastry blender or two forks and cut in the butter until it becomes a coarse meal without any big pieces of butter. Store the mixture in a jar in the refrigerator.
Peace in the Kitchen!
We bought the Summer Squash from a farmer at our local market. They told us the Summer Squash and Zucchini were planted adjacent to each other. They actually cross pollinated and produced the yellow squash with green designs on them. Some of them had much more green and a more intricate design.
