This cookbook has helped me raise two families,

This review is from: Make-a-mix (Paperback)
I first purchased this cookbook in 1978 to use to simplify my life while working & raising 2 daughters. I am now raising two granddaughters and I am again using this book to simplify my cooking and provide healthy, additive-free food. The dry mixes always provide perfect results and the meat mixes are delicious and easy to prepare. My granddaughters will also eat everything since I let them help me prepare the mixes and they know what's in them. I buy the meats required when they are on sale and make up a batch at that time. I know the food is well-cooked and not full of "junk". I would recommend this book to anyone but especially working people with kids to feed at home. What a great alternative to "McDonald's".

Do you still have the older version of this cookbook from 1978? I borrowed this book from the public library years ago and made many of the mixes and the recipes when my family was still at home. I bought a newer version and one of my favorite recipes was not in it - "Enchilada Casserole" made with the "Ready Hamburger Mix". I have looked and looked trying to find this recipe again. If you have the older book that it is in and would share it with me I would be forever grateful.

1 (6oz) package of corn chips(=3/4 cup)- divided into 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup portions
2 cups of the ready hamburger mix, thawed

Heat oven to 375. In bowl, combine 1/4 cup corn chips,, hamburger mix, chili, enchilada sauce,and tomato sauce.Put into a 2 quart greased casserole dish. Bake 20 minutes in 375 oven or until hot.Crush remaining corn chips ( 1/2 cup).Take casserole pan out of oven and spread hot mixture with the sour cream, then the grated cheese and lastly the 1/2 cup of crushed corn chips.Bake another 5 minutes or so until the cheese melts.
