Common Food Substitutions - Free Printables!

Do you ever begin a recipe and then realize that you do not have all the needed ingredients?  Yep, this has happened to me several times.  Because I like to try new things, this doesn't always stump me.  Yet, sometimes I am not exactly sure how much of a substitute ingredient to use.
To make those times a little less stressful, I decided to make a chart of common food substitutions.   I keep my list in a very visible place - on the inside door of a cupboard.

While I was at it, I made a few more measurement conversion charts to match:

Since I often like to change things up, I also made the charts in two other styles.  So, there is the lemon theme pictured above (have I mentioned that I am on a lemon kick lately?) as well as grey and yellow chevron themes.

You are more than welcome to download them here:


Happy cooking!

  6. Thanks for sharing these. I have gotten these printed and stuck them on my kitchen board. I am a full time worker at a company that provides Web Design Services in Pakistan and because of my busy routine I skip making a lot of recipes that i see on the internet just because I don't have the time to convert the measurements. But now i can make whatever I want with the help of your printables. Thanks!
