Whipped Cream! It's so easy to make and it's the real deal! Come on, you know Cool Whip isn't really food... it contains more water, hydrogenated vegetable oil (i.e. trans fat), high-fructose corn syrup, and corn syrup than it does cream...and when was the last time you went out to the xanthan or guar gum tree or picked some polysorbate 60 and sorbitan monostearate from the garden?
DIY Bisquick. No chemicals or hydrogenated fat. I'm going to try it with coconut oil and whole wheat pastry flour instead. 2 C flour 1 t. baking powder 1 t. sugar 1/2 t. salt 1 stick of butter Combine all ingredients, cut in the butter with a food processor or a pastry cutter and store in the refrigerator up to 4 months. A single recipe fits a quart jar very nicely.
