I was in our local grocery store that has over-priced, out-dated food. I only go there when I don't feel like running into "town" (which is about 15-20 minutes away) and I'm desperate for something.

Do you have an old standby that you'd like to share? I've heard you can add extracts to cake mixes, too, which I've never done.
