Happy New Year
Maybe we can begin this year with eating healthy foods and taking good care of your bodies.
Continuing from last December's Substitutions in a Hurry, here is a similar list that explains measurements. You may not have to give up on that recipe after all.
Especially during the festive season a lot of us are looking at cooking and there are times that we don't have what the recipe asks for. I recently found a full page newspaper guide, (that I had saved all these years) that included what they describes as Emergency Substitutions. I am including a part of the list and will continue with the rest of the list on an ongoing basis.The information was listed in a newspaper published in Star Tribune in Minneapolis St. Paul on Thursday, January 11, 2001
