    What do you do when you're in the middle of a recipe and run out of something you need? Go the store, right? Not if you live out in the middle of nowhere, or it's snowing, or it's midnight! Some of these recipes have saved the day for me. Some have even turned out so well that I now use them instead of the original product.

    From Top Secret Recipes A copycat version of McDonald's Sweet and Sour sauce. I don't know about anyone else, but our McDonald's has started charging for sauce packets. From now on I think I'll make our nuggets and sauce. I found this recipe at another website.

    Recipe #386474

    Easy substitute for Bisquick - need to store it in the refrigerator - but this makes only 1 cup, so you don't have lots left over to store.

    Recipe #381055

    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

    Perfect for camping, RVing or boating! Can be used in any recipe calling for store-bought baking mix. Found on the King Arthur Flour website. Recipes using this baking mix include: Recipe #377831

    Recipe #377822

    I got a new Cuisinart spice grinder and this recipe came with it!! A vital ingredient to hummus, this sesame paste is very versatile and can be used as a base in salad dressings or sauces.

    Recipe #377520

    Looking for a substitute online and found this one @ HowStuffWorks.

    Recipe #374238

    This recipe is from I don't use them, much, but a lot of people do. Here is your chance to contron the ingredients in yours. Any white bread will do for making panko. An Asian chef I once worked with swore that the best homemade panko came from Wonder Bread! The yield will vary according to how large you make your crumbs, so I am guessing.

    Recipe #167729

    After searching high and low in my town for a jar of tahini, I couldn't find any! I went searching online and found this easy recipe. This is MUCH cheaper to make yourself, and only takes a couple minutes.

    Recipe #73859

    If you have this recipe, you don't have to buy Panko breadcrumbs at markets. You can make baked salmon, Japanese deep fried meat or fish and so on.

    Recipe #368234

    I have no clue who to give credit to for this recipe. It was in a pile of clippings I'm putting here to try later. It looks interesting.

    Recipe #367836

    homemade. I find this tastes much better than any other pre-made toppings that you buy in the frozen food section. I have always used the Pet Brand Instant Milk. I use my steel mixer bowl and put it with the water into freezer, and also my beaters so everything is cold and icy. This recipe is originally a back of the box recipe from Knox. It is similar to ones on Zaar but this also has lemon juice, which I think helps to keep it white, and adds flavour.

    Yes, you can make it easily at home. Use Blackstrap Molasses for dark brown sugar.

    Recipe #361604

    When your recipe calls for a can of condensed soup, just make your own! This makes the equivalent of one can of condensed soup (10.5 ounces). Note the suggested variations that can be made to this recipe.

    Recipe #360192

    Found in the St George Spectrum newspaper 2/27/2008. Not tried yet, here for safe-keeping.

    Recipe #358090

    My mother used to talk about making her own cheese back in the "Old Country". This makes a good creamy cheese, with no preservatives.

    Recipe #13373

    A simple little recipe for when you get caught without any syrup for your pancakes or even over some ice cream.

    Recipe #67535

    This recipe is equal to an 8.5 ounce box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. When another recipe calls for a box of JIffy Corn Muffin Mix, use the mixed dry ingredients from this recipe as a substitute. This is a very easy copycat recipe because it uses Bisquick. Store any unused dry mix in an airtight container.

    Recipe #74080

    From Top Secret Recipes "This recipe is practically identical to the one Kraft uses for their Shake'n Bake bread coating. The only difference you'll find is that the real Shake'n Bake contains beet powder - a hard to find ingredient that gives the mix a dark orange tint. It doesn't do much for the flavor however, so it's been left out of the recipe. Try it and you'll swear it's the same thing."

    Recipe #111637

    Why pay a fortune for condensed milk? I use this all the time. It works great!
