SUBSTITUTIONS.....

i found this in a newsletter to which i subscribe. it gives alternate choices for ingredients when you don't have what is listed in the recipe on hand..
----------
"This is a great Web site for anyone who loves to cook! You never know when you’re going to run out of something and need a food substitute for your recipe. With this site's search engine, you can find a food sub fast and easy.

Not only does it have great food substitutions, but it also has information, pronunciations, pictures and more!

On the main page, you’ll notice that there is a featured section where you'll find the Ingredient of the Month. This month's is red cabbage. The section tells you what to look for in red cabbage, what it pairs well with and it offers you some advice on how to cook it.

Further down the main page, you'll find a listing of categories. You’ll find everything from fruits to vegetables, flavorings, baking supplies, fats and oils and even equipment.

Each category breaks down into a list of items that fit the category you can explore further.

This site offers you a great way to find food substitutes for those kitchen mishaps when you thought you had everything you needed. It also goes further to educate you about the ingredients and equipment you cook with. Happy cooking!

Thanks so much! I run into this problem periodically. If I recall, if you do not have baking chocolate, then remember three tabespoons cocoa plus one tablespoon butter will replace...

Is this correct?

This isn't the same kind of substitute, but I just posted in the "Top 10 Foods. . ." thread about a substitute for rice: cauliflower.
I saw the idea at http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbsidedishes/r/caulirice.htm
I made some fried "rice" using the cauliflower, and it worked great! I did not pre-cook the cauliflower -- just stir-fried it with the other veggies. So the recipe was even quicker than making real fried rice.

I have a real weakness for carbs, and when I can find a suitable sub, I'm very pleased. And, for me, this one is a keeper.

That is a real treasure trove to print-out for very safe keeping!

yes Taco.. three tablespoons cocoa plus one tablespoon fat (butter, vegetable oil) will replace 1 ounce of baking chocolate in most recipes

Thanks! Trying to remember some other emergency substitutions off the top of my head. Anyone remember a sub. for baking powder, or baking soda?

I have a subs list that says 1 tsp. of baking soda = 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar + 1/4 tsp. baking soda.

Fudypatootie, you did not mean to say "soda" twice in your equation.
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar + 1/4 tsp. baking soda = 1 tsp. of baking POWDER
.
