Have you ever wanted to make a recipe but you were missing one of the ingredients? With the new book Substituting Ingredients by Becky Sue Epstein, your meal can move forward without a hitch. This book provides substitutions for herbs, types of fish, meat and beans, eggs, vegetables and fruit, just to name a few. There are also helpful “equivalency” tips throughout the book, such as how many limes you will need for two tablespoons of juice (answer: 1).
The back of the book has measurement equivalents (i.e. 1/4 cup = 4 Tablespoons), household cleaning formulas, and remedies for cooking disasters. The disaster section is a must-see part of the book for anyone who is cooking for someone else and all of a sudden realizes the stove is on too high, or there’s too much salt in the soup.
Soon your friends will be calling you for substitution emergencies before their next party!
