I've been meaning to post these recipes for quite awhile now. In an effort to cook as allergy (corn, dairy, egg and wheat) free as possible, that means cooking with no prepared seasoning mixes and using plain old non-preservative ingredients. here are several mix recipes I use regularly (and a couple I haven't used yet). Most of them I've gotten and tweaked to our tastes or allergy issues. All of them are egg, corn and dairy free (if you omit the bouillon in the onion soup mix recipe) and all but the taco seasoning mix are wheat free as well (and that could be altered).

I make them up and store them in tightly sealed containers (jars or big spice containers from Sam's) until I'm ready for them!

The Make a Mix Cookbook has lots of baking mixes as well that I'm beginning to use. She does have seasoning mix recipes, but those are also readily available online.
