Disclosure: I received this products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Have you ever been in the middle of a recipe, only to find that you didn’t have one of the ingredients you needed? I have done this more than once. Usually, this ends with me in a panic trying to find said ingredients in the house or sending my husband to the store on an emergency run so I can finish dinner or a dessert I’m making. Before you say go to the internet, let’s be real. Sometimes you can get good ideas, but others…well…I have ruined some recipes by taking bad advice from people who swore up and down they were experts. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something you had in the house that you could run to just to find a quick substitution? Recently, I found the perfect solution for busy cooks like me – The Food Substitution Bible by David Joachim.

The Food Substitutions Bible: Overall

I will freely admit, I am in love with this book. While it isn’t one of those books you use often, it is a lifesaver when you need it. In the past two weeks, I have gone to this book twice looking for substitutions, with it saving my recipe once and another time keeping me from taking bad advice alone. To give you an idea of how this book is, I call it more of a cooking substitution encylopedia. You find the ingredient you need, it tells you about it, then gives substitutions with correct conversions for what you need of said ingredient. It even tells you if the substitution may change the flavor, saving you time and money. Really, I consider this book a must for any cook!

    This book sounds like a must have for every home. I hate it when I’m trying to cook only to find out that I’m missing an ingredient.
