Tip #3 - Ingredient Substitution

The other day when I was making the Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies, I discovered (after already mixing a bunch of ingredients together) that I did not have enough unsalted butter to complete the recipe.  I was faced with a real dilemma.  Do I just omit some of the butter?  Do I try and substitute something else for the missing butter?  What should I add instead?  Sound familiar?  This seems to happen to me more frequently than I care for - perhaps it has to do with having a 2 year old and a 6 six week old!  Therefore, I went searching for a tool to help me when I run short on ingredients and don't want to run to the neighbor's house or the grocery store.  When I searched, I found this awesome ingredient substitution chart.  It has substitutions for almost anything and has saved many a recipe!  Happy Cooking!
