Today’s Kitchen Tips


Here are just a few things I thought of that might help in the kitchen if you don’t find everything in your pantry that your recipe calls for.

Allspice = 3 parts: Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves so if you need a tsp. of Allspice just use 1/3 tsp. of each spice listed

Sour Milk or Buttermilk: If all you have is regular milk and you need one of these just add 1 T vinegar, either white or apple cider will be fine, stir and let stand for 5-10 minutes befure pouring into your batter.

If a recipe calls for shortening often the same amount of oil can be substituted.  Also, oil can be replaced with applesauce and for a more spice cake flavor you could use applebutter for an unexpected taste.

The Lord has blessed me in so many ways; family, friends, and those who may one day be friends. Being blessed with a rich heritage of cooks, I decided to share some of my life with those who are interested. I pray that you're going to be able to add to your repertoire of meals either by using my recipes or customizing them for you, your family and friends. BTW Gingy is the name my brother and sister called me when we were little as they couldn't say Jennie.
