    You do not need to be afraid of cooking rice again! lol Real rice is so much better for you than instant. So here is a basic recipe that will have you cooking rice like a pro!

    Recipe #137364

    A different way to make Perfect Rice in the microwave. I didn't believe that it would cook till tender without being covered, boy was I wrong. From cookbook author Kathleen Daelemans.

    I found this on ochef.com. According to them, recipes using dried (powdered) milk approximate the texture but not the flavor of true sweetened condensed milk, and the following recipe tastes much better. It is not as thick as regular condensed milk, but it works fine as an ingredient in bar cookie recipes. SOURCE: www.ochef.com

    Recipe #104863

    A quick and easy method for making the classic spice mix. I have often used this when I was in a hurry, and didn't have time to grind my spices.

    If you have the ingredients on hand this is a less expensive way to go-a must for crab cakes and shrimp.

    Recipe #15562

    Okay, okay I know. True tiramisu uses mascarpone, but just in case your local Safeway or whatever doesn't carry it, which is often the case, this is a good substitute. I used it in Emeril's tiramisu recipe and it came out very nicely. Just thought this might help someone.

    This is an easy way to make your own mascarpone at much less cost

    Recipe #114797

    11 Reviews |  By Tara

    This was in a United Emire LOyalist Cookbook with a note that it was originally from a 20th century cookbook from 1906. It is much more powerful than any you buy. Good in a pinch if you are out and happen to have the other ingredients on hand.

    I got this recipe from Ruth Baks, one of Jerusalem's finest cooks. This is how I make my vanilla and it's wonderful!

    Recipe #105417

    This is a more mellow blend of garam masala, it's the one I prefer when making Indian dishes. I post this to go with my Lamb in Fragrant Garlic Cream recipe.

    Recipe #49131

    Tasty, basic, and cheap!

    Recipe #23460

    Ghee is a healthy alternative to butter and oils. Ghee is an ingredient in many Middle Eastern dishes. It is also called clarified butter. It is available at natural foods and Indian product stores or you can prepare the ghee yourself. Is an unsalted butter that has been cooked to remove not only its butter fat solids, as in drawn butter, but also all water -- so as to produce a food that contains no molecular oxygen, and is thus extremely storable and not subject to rancidity as in normal cooking oils. The health advantages accrue from the fact that ghee contains no oxidized cholesterol, the kind which leads to free radical damage in the cells of the body.

    Recipe #55434

    Paula Deen made this on her show. It is the butter that sets this apart from other recipes. This milk is so thick and creamy you will want to eat it with a spoon (or at least I always do)! I have used this several times and it has worked like a charm. I am so happy to have this for the holidays, since it's usually the one ingredient I'm out of.

    Recipe #105568

    This is close enough to real thing, although I have never tried it but I imagine that the mixture could be frozen until ready to use --- *note* do not double the recipe as it will not thicken properly, make two separate recipes in two bowls, use only *pure* vanilla extract for this :)

    Recipe #81374

    Easy whipped cream

    Recipe #118677

    This came from a "light" cook book and makes a great sustitute for heavy cream in dessert recipes. Do not overmix, it will cause it to become too liquidy. Cooking time reflects set time.

    Recipe #122689

    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

    I'm submitting this in response to a request. I haven't tried it.

    Recipe #87384

    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

    This is a recipe for Emeril's Essence spice, used in many of his recipes. May also be used within many of your own dishes as an extra kick of flavor.
