Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Alcoholic Substitutions

If you're like me you don't have a wide array of alcohol sitting around the house! LOL. So I thought that this list of substitutions would be a good thing to post.

  • For 2 TBS Amaretto, substitute 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • For 2 TBS of sherry or bourbon, substitute 1 to 2 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • For 2 TBS Kahlua, coffee, or chocolate-flavored liqueur, substitute 1/2 to 1 tsp chocolate extract plus 1/2 to 1 tsp instant coffee in 2 TBS water.
  • For 1/4 cup or more white wine, substitute an equal measure of white grape juice or apple juice.
  • For a 1/4 cup or more of red wine, substitute and equal amount of red grape juice or cranberry juice.

Have a blessed day!

Sweet! Thank you for posting this, Kim! :D I sometimes wonder besides apple juice what to use. This is extremely helpful!

Wait, don't extracts contain alcohol?? LOL - couldn't resist my friend!

Seriously, this is an excellent substitution list! It's totally not worth it to buy a huge bottle of alcohol when you only need a bit in a recipe.
