  2. Agreed - Bisquick is not on my list of safe foods. Neither is any dairy product. Plus, sometimes I've got to watch the eggs. For each cup of flour, add 1 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Use olive oil or melted coconut oil for shortening. Add 1 tsp of vinegar or 1 T of lemon juice as an egg substitute, and reduce liquid a bit.

    1. Vinegar and lemon are not on my safe list at all so I'm thankful that eggs are not a problem for me
