Strangely enough, I struggle with this. I believe I was thrown off course years ago while watching this beautiful lady.
Yes, she did it in her movie Sabrina where she looked into the refrigerator and came up with a meal.
So when I start to make a recipe, I look in the refrigerator to see if I have what I need and usually find that I don't. Soooo, I do what Sabrina did and replace one item for another.
If you remember, I'm on a low carb diet and in need of a treat.
I found this recipe that was called Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake bars
Now the recipe called for
1 3oz box of sugar free lemon jello - ( I had this)
1 cup of boiling water - (again a check mark was in my kitchen)
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice ( yes - we are good to go.)
2 8oz packages of low fat cream cheese (Houston, we have it a problem.)
I didn't have low fat cream cheese and only had 1 package. Now, what's a cook to do and knowing my husband isn't the biggest fan of cream cheese.....well, I did what I always do and changed the recipe.
Okay, so I had one package of full fat cream cheese and wait for it.....sour cream.
So I mixed it up with using the directions and add a cup of sour cream instead of 1 of the packages of cream cheese.
They came out awesome.
So if you don't have 2 packages of cream cheese you might want to try 1 cup of sour cream in this recipe. (Good for those people who aren't fan of cream cheese.)
Thanks for tune into Tina's Tidings,
