I'm more of a functional cook, than a "make it look pretty" cook. I'll start out with that warning.
But then I'll tell you that being efficient equals less time in the kitchen. So there's that.
I've found with a few simple ingredients you can have something hot, homemade and with much less chemicals than in the tubes or frozen.
Even better...in less time. It was "an aha moment" when I made my store-bought frozen biscuits that bake for 25 minutes the second or third time and realized that this recipe could be done in about half that time, start to finish.
2 C flour
1 t salt
3 t baking powder
1 C milk
1/3 C oil
Mix together until barely combined (don't overbeat). Drop by spoonful onto cooking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees 12-15 minutes.
