Fresh Herbs vs. Dried Herb Measurements

When using fresh herbs, the easy rule of thumb is to triple the amount of dried herbs called for in the recipe.  For example, 1 tsp. dried oregano equals 3 tsp. (1 TBS.) minced fresh oregano.

Self-Rising Flour Substitute

As a substitute for self-rising flour, place 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt in a measuring cup.  Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

Pumpkin Pie Tip

Try substituting eggnog for the milk in your next homemade pumpkin pie.
