OK Now I have seen it all I know there are a lot of uses for bisquick but never have I seen a cookbook for it!!! Did you know that there is a Bisquick cookbook?? Am I the only one left in the dark on this??? Also did you know that there are at least 280 all new recipes in the book let alone the old one? They even have Mississippi Mud Bars!!!! So what do you think of this? So you have any Bisquick recipes!

I actually knew the cookbook existed. I think we have a copy of it at my house. I haven't really looked at it, I just have seen the cover. We have so many cookbooks though, I don't think I've had time to really look through any of them at all.

I did know that there was a Bisquick cookbook, although I had no idea there wee so many recipes. I assume there would be tons since Bisquick is just basically sweetened, flaovored flour, however the Mississippi Mud Bars stand out. They are probably my favorite indulgence and now I have a craving for them. Perhaps I will try the Bisquick version. Its not like they are going to be bad. :) Off to procure Bisquick and for-go the diet.

Ohh! I didnt see the recipe earlier, that saved me from entirely destroying the kitchen, at least for today. Ive copied the recipe down and now have to go get sour cream. I may be hitting up the 24-hour wal-mart! As far as the diet being ruined, I wouldnt be overly worried. I wasn't doing all that well myself. Im jsut trying to get ready for bathing suit season. Its just easier for me to eat whatever I want then go to the gym every day. Not eating something that I want is just entirely too much effort.

LOL!! I don't know how many times I hit the walmart to get something that I didn't have at about 1 am. LOL!!! I hope that you enjoy the recipe and tomorrow I will be paying for my naughtyness by taking three classes to shape, mold and firm and sculpt places I didn't even know I have. So while I'm sitting in traction you'll be enjoying some mississippi mud pie. Mmmmm. Eat a slice for me please. Thanks.

What culinary rock do you live under? Geez! I thought everyone owned at least one Bisquick cookbook. They have only been putting them out since I was a little girl! I have an old one that I took from my grandmother. I don't use it though I just to go the website now when I need a good recipe and have some bisquick to use up.

I knew that there was a Bisquick cookbook, yes. I do not use Bisquick very often. In fact we don't have any in the house. I was on the Betty Crocker web site one night looking at all the Bisquick recipes on there. I printed a few to make with my niece at her house about a month ago.
