  1. To substitute the yeast called for in a recipe, take the amount called for and add in equal parts baking soda and lemon juice (eg. 1 Tbsp of yeast will equal ½ Tbsp of baking soda and ½ Tbsp of lemon juice).

  3. Make sure the yeast substitute is the last ingredient you add in order for the reaction to properly work.

    I just became a member tonight and have been browsing the recipes WOW!!! I could not be more pleased. I just recently found out that I am gluten intolerant after decades of being told I had IBS. Well I’m sure I’m not the only one that has heard that. I’m Soooo happy that there is a place like this with so much info. Thanks! Darla. AR

    I just love this site! I’m American Indian, so a lot of foods don’t agree with me.

    Do you have a good substitute for eggs in a recipe? Your website is great. My grandkids
    have to eat gluten free, dairy free, soy free and egg free. Sometimes it is a little hard
    to come up with great recipes that will please everyone. Thank you for your help
