Did you know?

You can cut the number of calories and fat grams in your baked goods by using the equivalent amount of apple sauce instead of oil (in other words, 1 cup of oil equals 1 cup of apple sauce).

When a recipe calls for 1 small onion, it's equivalent to 1/4 cup of chopped, fresh onion. You can substitute it for 1 to 2 tablespoons of instant minced onion...or 1 tablespoon of onion powder...or 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion salt.

If your salsa is to intense, mix in a few drops of vanilla extract. It tames the heat, making it seem less spicy.
