I'd like to find more recipes for mixes, you know, like Taco Seasoning, spagetti mix that kind of stuff.   I have a great taco seasoning mix and am in search of a pizza sauce mix.  Got any ideas?

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Pizza-Sauce-III/Detail.aspx Here is one, but I have yet to actually make my own pizza sce so haven't tried it. I know there are lots of recipes on here for home made mixes. A great place to ask this question is on the recipe exchange.

I also like the fact of making your own seasoning mix, unfortunately I am a lazy Gus! At least if we made our own, we would know exactly what was in them and not have to worry about the preservs and such. You should take CC's advise and go to the RE, then they can help a lot. Have a good day!

I stopped using the canned cream of ____ soup mix. Instead I use this recipe http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Homemade-Cream-Style-Soup-Mix/Detail.aspx I keep mine in a ziplock bag in the freezer. It comes in very handy! I can make any number of home made versions of the dreaded Hamburger Helper. So much better than the box. It makes great sauces, too.

There's a recipe here called Exquisite Pizza Sauce that is fantastic, but it's not a dry mix. That would be interesting to find. I'm becoming more and more a "from scratch" person. I make all of our salad dressings, rubs and marinades for meats, spice blends and such. Also just started making granola for my daughter instead of buying it and the quality is tremendous! Good luck!
