mixture is what you get when you combine two substances in such a way that no chemical reaction occurs between the components and you can separate them again. Technically, the term "mixture" is used incorrectly when a recipe calls for you to mix, for example, flour and eggs. A chemical reaction does occur between those cooking ingredients. You can't undo it. However, mixing dry ingredients, such as flour, salt and sugar, does produce an actual mixture.
