Have you ever been cooking and realized that you don't have all the ingredients you need.
Sometimes, you will need to run to the store and purchase the missing item.
Other times, you can substitute that missing ingredient.
We love to cook in our house and with a big family, missing an ingredient is a common occurrence. We have learned to improvise.
Here are some common ingredient substitutions.
On of our favorite things to eat for dessert on Resurrection Sunday is Carrot Cake. We make it from scratch and frost it with cream cheese icing. Here are the recipes for the carrot cake and the cream cheese frosting.
I tasted this recipe at a friend's house the day after Easter when I was in high school. I asked for the recipe and have enjoyed making it over the years, adapting to fit my own family's taste.
I hope you like it!
