In my last WFMW post I mentioned a couple of recipes. I got a few requests for these recipes so I thought I'd post my top three favorites here and share.

Taco Powder Mix

1 C. dried minced onion
1/3 C. chili powder (or to taste)
2 T. cumin
3 t. crushed red pepper
1 T. dried oregano (crumble up a bit)
1 T. garlic powder (or to taste)
1 t. celery seed (pulverize in a coffee grinder)

Combine and store in a glass jar. 1 T. per pound of meat or beans.

Cocoa Powder Mix
1/4 C. Cocoa powder
1 C. Evaporated cane juice crystals (can use sugar if you don't have this)
7 C. Dry milk

Combine all ingredients and store in a jar. 4 T. per cup of boiling water.

Cream of Whatever Soup Mix

2 C. powdered nonfat milk
3/4 C. cornstarch
1/4 C. instant chicken bouillon
2 T. dried onion flakes
1 t. basil leaves
1 t. thyme leaves
1/2 t. pepper

To use instead of canned cream of... soup. 1/3 cup of dry mix with 1 1/4 cups of cold water in a saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened. Or simply add to a casserole calling for cream of... soup.

You asked for my sugar scrub recipe, so here it is...

1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
3/4 c. honey
1/4 c. olive oil
3 Tbs. lemon juice
2 tsp. ginger

Mix all together and store in plastic container. When in shower scrub body with handfulls of sugar scrub.

NOTE: If you don't use it all at once (and I never do) it does settle, so you might have to mix it up before each use.
