I found this list of common substitutes online and am posting for convenience. 

1 cup buttermilk = 1 teaspoon of vinegar/lemon juice and enough milk to make a cup

1 teaspoon allspice = 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon arrowroot starch = 1 tablespoon flour = 1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking powder = 1/4 teaspoon baking soda + 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
= 1/4 teaspoon baking soda + 1/2 cup buttermilk (then decrease liquid in recipe by 1/2 cup)

1 cup beer = 1 cup nonalcholic beer =1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup brandy = 1 teaspoon imitation brandy extract + water to make 1/4 cup

1 cup bread crumbs = 1 cup cracker crumbs = 1 cup matzo meal = 1 cup ground oats

1 cup beef or chicken broth = 1 bouillion cube + 1 cup boiling water = 1 tablespoon soy sauce + enough water to make 1 cup = 1 cup veggie broth

1 packed cup brown sugar = 1 cup white sugar + 1/4 cup molasses (and decrease liquid in recipe by 1/4 cup) = 1 cup white sugar = 1 + 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar

About Me
I am a typical college student, unsure of my degree choice. I like cooking but don't seem to have the time or energy to ever do so. I am taking culinary classes in my last 2 semesters getting my associates and I am hoping that I love it but I am also hoping I haven't wasted 2 years on a degree I won't use!!!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are foreign dishes (Indian, etc.) and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a kid my mother made something called glug every Christmas and Thanksgiving (the recipe is on my page!) And that is the only tradition I like to continue. My fiance doesn't like glug but I can still make It for myself =)
My cooking triumphs
Well I work as a cake decorator at Harris Teeter and have decorated some pretty awesome cakes (not to toot my own horn!)hopefully I will have some pretty kickass stories to tell after my semester of culinary!
My cooking tragedies
I tried a Black Forest Cake, that didn't work well, it tasted great, but didn't work. I mixed the strawberries in the frosting instead of putting it between the layers. As a cake decorator at Harris Teeter the first thing I learned to make was a black forest cake and the second time around it was awesome =)
