Here are a few helpful tips and tricks I always find myself using. I’ll keep updating this page as I find more useful tips for cooking!
Light brown sugar: 1 Tbsp molasses + 1 cup white sugar
Dark brown sugar: 2 Tbsps molasses + 1 cup white sugar
1 cup milk (low fat or whole) + 1 Tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar
Let the mixture sit for 5-10 mins at room temp until it curdles.
1 cup minus 2 Tbsps all purpose flour + 2 Tbsps cornstarch
1 cup rice + 1 1/2 cups water (or to the first joint of your finger).
Add more as needed and stir often when water level is getting low.
1/3 cup popcorn kernels + 3 Tbsps oil
