    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.

    Recipe #124413

    I decided to toast my Quinoa today and will go through this step by step as to how I did it so it came out nice and golden. I always make a few extra cups of Quinoa because I know I will want more. It takes time to do this right, but it is worth the effort in the long run.

    Recipe #421986

    This method is nothing short of a miracle to clean kitchen hood filters. Non-toxic and cheap, cheap, cheap! The only problem you should have is finding the right vessel. I used a roasting pan, but maybe using a disposable aluminum pan would work. Add the soda at the beginning to the cool water so it doesn't fizz and overflow. As embarrassing as it may be for me to show how bad mine were, note the differences. The foremost filter in the picture is one that's been cleaned by this method.

    Recipe #474982

    This stuff is amazing. I wish I could remember who originally gave me the recipe. I used it often when training a new puppy right after puchasing new carpet. It even worked on non-pet related stains. And I used Dawn instead of Joy.

    to unclog those sinks and drains

    Recipe #324291

    161 Reviews |  By Mirj

    For those of you who hate poison-type drain cleaners, use white vinegar and baking soda. This will clean and unclog a drain. Also drops of white vinegar in your pet's water will keep away fleas and ticks!

    Recipe #16470

    Commercial deoderants' active ingredient is aluminum - which has been linkedy to alzheimer's. I haven't had a lot of luck with the natural aluminum free deoderants from the store - they don't seem to work well at all. Here's a recipe to make your own. The only thing you need is an empty container from regular deoderant. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------This recipe is from http://www.littlehouseinthesuburbs.com/2009/03/quick-stick-deodorant.html

    An alternative to the bought stuff in a can...

    Recipe #39562

    This is an inexpensive way to make this clone, use in all your recipes calling for one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk.

    Recipe #73863

    Natural cleaning product from marthastewart.com.

    Recipe #289588

    This cleanser is so simple. You probably already have the main ingredient in you cupboard. It leaves your sink and your pots sparkling clean without the use of harsh chemicals or perfumes.

    Recipe #311883

    Based on the method in Cooking For Geeks.

    Recipe #450973

    Ever had a recipe that called for unsweetened chocolate and you were out or didn't have enough? Here's the solution! I've used this several times in various recipes and the results were perfect.

    Recipe #188761

    It blew my mind how much this tasted like regular sour cream! Yes, it's vegan, pareve, non-dairy and raw... But it's creamy as can be, and you can use it in any recipe that calls for sour cream. My lactose intolerant friend who hadn't eaten sour cream in years was in heaven when I served this to her. It refrigerates well. Try it on black bean soup, burritos, nachos, or tamales. You can also use it to cool down spicy recipes, or put a dab of it on borscht (beet soup).

    Recipe #204512

    Rust stains from metal outdoor furniture can be removed from concrete by using fresh lemon juice. Our front concrete porch had several rust stains due to an outdoor wooden bench with metal legs. I tried a couple lemon juice applications to the stains and was astonished at how well the treatment worked!!!

    Recipe #397893

    This is great for cast iron, but can be used for any cookware with rust. I suspect it would work on rust other than cookware.

    Recipe #460517

    I like eggnog year round, and you can't buy it here unless it's Xmas time. This is my favorite eggnog recipe.

    I don't always have cake flour on hand, and I'm betting many others don't either. I have discovered that this substitute works very, very well. Easy too, and it uses pantry staples!

    Recipe #87689

    This pie crust retains the flavor of an all butter crust, but is flakier because of the shortening. The lemon juice isn't in the recipe for lemon flavour... trust me you won't taste it, but rather to work with the flour and prevent the pastry from being tough. I also find that the dough gives a bigger yield than the original 9 inch size stated, I roll mine relatively thin and can get a full top and bottom for a 26 cm (12 inch) shallow pie dish. I have included 20+ step by step photographs to help you see *exactly* how this is made so that you now have instructions for making an entire pie crust from ingredients to table. The new instructions may look long, but I have only tried to give practical details to that even if this is your first ever pie crust, you will have ALL the information you need for success. Enjoy!

    Recipe #26205

    I was surprised that I couldn't find this recipe loaded into 'zaar. The amount of garlic appears substantial but try it and you'll find that your home-made beans are good as the canned. This recipe isn't complicated but it takes some pre-planning. The preparation and cooking times do not include the pre-soaking (4 hours or overnight) or the post-cooking resting period (15 minutes). Beans in liquid can be cooled, covered, and refrigerated up to 5 days.
