Do you ever find yourself all geared up and ready to make a favorite recipe but then discover you're staring at an empty container of a needed ingredient? Ugh. You don't want to run out to the store right now. So what do you do?

Well, that's when emergency kitchen substitutions come in handy. Here is a list that you can print out and keep a copy taped to the inside of your pantry door at all times.

Although these substitutions will work in a pinch, it is not always recommended substituting ingredients in your recipes. The recipes will technically work with substitutions, but often the finished product won't be exactly the same as when you use the original ingredients called for in the recipe.

Also, be sure you don't make more than one substitution in a particular recipe at once. The more ingredients you substitute, the more "off" your product will be when you're finished.
