Here’s A List Of Quick Cooking Substitutions You Will Use Every Day

My great grandmother left me a box FULL of recipes she used throughout her life, and it is one of my most PRIZED possessions.

In that box that is STUFFED full of HUNDREDS of recipes, is a chart she used to do quick baking substitutions. I need to laminate the thing, because it is something I want to keep FOREVER!

Lucky for YOU, I am going to share this little bit of knowledge with you. You’re welcome in advance.

I’m just going to go ahead and tell you — you are going to want to keep this information for future reference!

I can’t tell you HOW many times I’ve needed to change All-Purpose Flour into Self-Rising Flour, or Regular Milk into Buttermilk!

This cheat sheet has come in SO handy during the years. I wouldn’t have been able to make Cobbler or Biscuits a PLETHORA of times without these substitutions!

Thank you to all the grandmas out there, for being so incredibly amazing, and knowing all the answers to all the things!

You are so lucky to have inherited such gems and it is even better that your grandma has a granddaughter who uses it. So much gets lost.

You should make some of her hand written recipes you have there (so lucky you have them ) printed on T-towels & give as gifts to other women in your family
