Ingredient Substitutions and Household Resources
Have you ever decided to create the cullinary masterpiece of all time only to discover half-way in that some ingredient is missing and all options are off the table? I mean, the neighbor's not home, your sister's got the car, the phone line is down and company is on the way. Ok, that's probably not a very likely scenario, but when the kids have used the last cup of milk and left the carton in the fridge, or you need 2 eggs but only have one, these weights, measurements and food substitution charts might come in handy for some of those little emergencies.
It's good to know, for instance, that you can make your own brown sugar with a bit of black-strap molasses and regular granulated sugar. Both molasses and granulated sugars keep for years in the cupboard, but brown sugar dries out. If you are used to buying pre-made spices and sauces, you can rest easier with the knowledge that you probably already have most ingredients to whip up a decent substitute on the fly with the contents in your spice cabinet. I had that very issue not too long ago when I reached for my packet of ready-mix taco spices only to discover it wasn't there. I not only made my own taco spice I spiced it up just to my liking and haven't bought a package mix since.
