Ingredient Substitutions List

Posted by idawrites on November 20, 2009 in Cooking, Food, Frugal Tips |

Next week, most of us are going to be on an insane cooking spree. In spite of the best laid plans, I suspect that we’re all going to forget SOMETHING on the grocery list. We can often avoid the emergency run to the corner store for some random (OVERPRICED) thing we forgot by just knowing what can be substituted for our missing ingredient.

With that in mind, I did some searching and typed up a list of substitutions for common ingredients. I’m sure there are many more that I’m not aware of. If you have a substitution not listed here, please share it in the comments.
