Tip O’ the Week

*Tips that are NEAT-tO know!*

O.K. So sometimes, some of us get a bit ahead of ourselves and when that craving for chocolate cake turns into the making of the chocolate cake, we may realize we used the last of the baking powder on those cookies last week or we are short just 2 tablespoons of butter!

Instead of feeling like a jerk, feel like a genius by subbing.
Here are a few of the most common

Emergency ingredient substitutions!

*horns sound*

BAKING POWDER 1 tsp
SUB 1/4 tsp baking soda & 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

FRESH HERBS 1 Tbsp
SUB  1 tsp dried herb

MILK (WHOLE OR LOW FAT) 1 cup
SUB 1/2 cup evaporated milk & 1/2 cup water

UNSWEETENED CHOCOLATE 1 oz.
SUB 3 Tbsp cocoa & 1 Tbsp fat (vegetable oil or melted shortening, margarine, oleo)

SEMI-SWEET BAKING CHOCOLATE 1 oz.
SUB 1 oz unsweetened plus 1 Tbsp sugar

SEMI-SWEET CHIPS 1 cup
SUB 6 oz. (semi-sweet baking chocolate) chopped

*write them on a little card and put it in your recipe box* Hooray!
