Ingredient: Corn Muffin Mix
Snack: Cheesy Biscuits. Think of this picnic go-to as a blank canvas. Stir in flavorful mix-ins like grated pepper Jack, chunks of cheddar, pickled jalapenos or chopped chipotles in adobo, then make your mark with flavorful sunshiny squares. They're a perfect match for chili. Or serve them solo slathered with butter and a drizzle of honey.

Ingredient: Jarred Salsa
Snack: Kicked-Up Salsa. Brighten up a bowl of the bland store-bought stuff with a handful of chopped fresh tomatoes; grape, cherry or plum tomatoes will all do the trick. Throw in a cup of drained black beans or thawed frozen corn if you're feeling adventurous.
Ingredient: Leftover Cheese
Ingredient: Jarred Olives
Ingredient: Store-Bought Pie Dough or Puff Pastry
Snack: Meaty Roll-Ups. Cut store-bought pie dough or puff pastry into large triangles. Spread the dough with mustard, layer with cold cuts (like ham, turkey or roast beef) and cheese, if there's any on hand, roll up into a crescent roll shape, then bake.
