Tuesday Tips: quick substitutions for Italian Dishes

(yeah, I know it's not Tuesday. It's been a busy week)

Arborio Rice (1 cup) = 1 cup of short grain or brown

Balsamic Vinegar (1 Tbsp) = 1tbsp cider or red wine vinegar plus 1/2tsp sugar

1Tbsp fresh herbs = 1tsp dried herbs, crushed

1 Clove Garlic = 1/2tsp mince garlic or 1/8tsp garlic powder

1 cup Half and Half/Light Cream = 1tbsp melted butter plus 1 cup of whole milk

Now, for those new to fresh garlic, remember, you buy garlic in a "head", the clove is each part that you pull apart from the head.
