Missing Something?

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!

  1. Thanks for the referral… they could have called the book “winging it” – well at least that is what I do when I’m out of something… ~ Chef Louise
