If you bake and cook everyday then this is a must to have in your cupboard, it's so much cheaper than using cooking spray and works even better than Pam cooking spray, no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray will and will keep forever in your cupboard --- for baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour --- this may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that *all* three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well ;-)
This is simplicity itself.
To reduce the sodium content simply omit the salt.To reduce the sugar content replace the brown sugar with 1-teaspoon molasses and 1/4 cup granulated Splenda.Regular ketchup is full of things you don't even want to know about. I found this recipe on Hillbilly Housewife site.
This is my mom's playdough recipe that she originally got from an old friend. My mom is the one that started adding the different extracts to the playdough to make such wonderful smelling playdough. My kids and I both love this recipe! It makes a very smooth playdough that will last a very long time. Enjoy!
A great home remedy prescribed by my ear, nose & throat specialist for sinus headaches, congestion, colds, and allergies. The salt water clears the "gunk" out. The baking soda soothes irritated membranes, and the glycerine soothes and moisturizes.
OK-So this isn't exactly a food recipe but it uses food stuff and it looks pretty cool too! Fun for kids to make.Plus you can point out that oil is lighter than vinegar...a little Science never hurt anyone!
What happens to the Flubber when... it is stretched? it is rolled into a ball and bounced? it is stretched over the opening of the jar? an object (golf ball, etc.) is rolled on it? What else can you do with flubber? ...make it and find out! A Closer Look: Flubber is a polymer made by a chemical reaction. Polymers are very long chains of repeating units. When the two solutions are combined, polyvinyl acetate chains (a polymer from the white glue) are linked together in a 3-dimensional arrangement by borate ions (from the Borax) and other chemical bonds. This produces the thick, sticky polymer called Flubber. (You can get white glue in bulk from a school supplies source. Keep this stuff away from carpet and hair as it will stick. If necessary, white vinegar can act as a solvent.) Thanks to my cyberpal Julie for this recipe!
I use this all-purpose balanced seasoning blend EVERY day! It's great on chicken, pork, beef, soups, stews, pasta salads, and just about any vegetable you can think of, especially fresh tomatoes and potatoes. I always double or triple the recipe, and keep it in a shaker by my stove. It can be made with or without the salt-substitute or salt, and still impart a delicious flavor.
This is a copycat recipe for Schilling Salad Supreme. Use the entire recipe if making Mysterygirl's Linguini Salad in place of the 1/2 a jar that is called for in the recipe. It would be good mixed with italian dressing on vegetables too.
I always seem to not have buttermilk on hand when I need it. I've used the powdered milk and vinegar version of this which works well, but today I didn't have any powdered milk! This substitution that I found on the internet works just as well.
Emeril Lagasse's bam recipe for kids. He tells the fearless "bammers" to kick it up a notch by adding 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (or more to taste) to the mix. You can sprinkle this on lots of dishes or add it to recipes.
