I share Judy R's frustration at manufacturers downsizing products so they no longer work for recipes. I would rather they just charged more so we could get the same sizes. Regarding cake mixes that are smaller now, a quick fix is to pour the smaller mix into a bowl and whisk in 6 tablespoons of all purpose flour, then proceed as the recipe directs.

Or you can use this recipe for:

Cake Mix Extender Recipe
To make up for the smaller amounts now being packaged in the cake mix:

1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Mix together and store in a container. Each time you use an undersized mix, add 6 tablespoons of this dry mix to the cake mix, and proceed with the recipe.

Nancy, I hope you are on the mend, I missed the newsletter while you were out.

Can anyone help? I have a Microwave Browning Plate which has been gathering dust for many years. I was never impressed with anything I tried to do in it. Now that I am cooking for 2 most of the time, I was thinking of buying a newer model, but they all look exactly the same as my dusty one! Does anyone in here use one and give me any tips. I usually cook my sausages, bacon etc in the oven, but with today's electricity prices it would seem prudent to think of cheaper ways. Thank you in anticipation of some enlightenment.

I have had a terrible cough for 8 months and the Drs. Did not know what to do for me. I went on line to see if I could find some relief and this is what I found. I boiled a package of baby carrots with enough water to cover them. When that cooled I put the carrots and water in the blender with 4 TBSP of local honey and a big dash of cinnamon then pureed it all. I took 1 TBSP of this 4 times a day. It worked like magic. Cough gone in 2 days and it tastes like dessert!
