The Food Substitutions Bible, Second Edition
by David Joachim

ISBN: 9780778802457

Number of Pages: 696/ 7"x10"/Index
Publisher: Robert Rose, Inc.

     The Food Substitutions Bible 2nd Edition by David Joachim Culinary traditions have changed immensely from the time I was a small child. I recall many times when I was visiting my grandmother that she would send my cousin, Ronnie to the woods to set his rickety trap in order to catch an unsuspecting gray squirrel or rabbit as they nibbled vegetation beneath a small bush or shrub. He would bag it and then bring it home to my grandmother to clean and skin for their supper. She remarked that it tasted just like chicken - finger licking good!

     I never witnessed the skinning or cleaning of the gray squirrels or rabbits but I did attend as she helped our family prepare our large coop of chickens for the freezer one year. I am a bit fuzzy on the actual season but it is one memory that I will never forget.

     Is your mouth watering for fried squirrel or rabbit, now? Well, you could substitute another meat for the common gray squirrel. Let's check out the new kitchen resource book, The Food Substitutions Bible, Second Edition by David Joachim. From A1 to Zwieback there are 6,500   substitutions for ingredients, equipment and techniques. As I browse the alphabetized entries, I locate the word squirrel. Included is a bit of history specifically featuring the common gray squirrel as presented in the reprinted 1962 cookbook, The Joy of Cooking published by the Bobbs-Merrill Company; which shared recipes and step-by-step instructions for skinning and cleaning a squirrel. If squirrel is not your cup of tea, then you could one of these substitutes: a rabbit(more tender meat), hare(pinker meat) or chicken(lighter, more tender meat).

  • How To Use this Book
  • A - Z Substitutions
  • Measurement Equivalent Charts
  • Ingredient Guides
  • Recipes(50 new recipes)

     The Food Substitutions Bible, Second Edition by David Joachim is awesome.  I highly recommend it as a great gift idea for newly wed couples, a housewarming shower, college bound students, the local firehouse, organic farmers, hunting lodges, home, school, church libraries and more.

DAVID JOACHIM has written, edited or collaborated on more than 40 cookbooks. He is a bestselling and award-winning author.  The Science of Good Food, which he co-authored with Andrew Schloss, was nominated for a James Beard Award and the first edition of  The Food Substitutions Bible won the prestigious International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Award. 

Thank you,

Patch on the Back Winners – Salonpas® Sweepstakes

Patch on the Back Winners – Salonpas® Sweepstakes

Salonpas® Sweepstakes
Salonpas® Sweepstakes SRV $100

Salonpas® powerful relief when and where you need it.

Got pain? Push aside over-the-counter analgesic pills, a healthier solution for pain management awaits with topical analgesic products in the form of creams, gels, sprays and patches.

SALONPAS® products


     The American Academy of Pain Medicine reports that “pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined” which is costing the nation at least $558 billion a year in medical bills, sick days and lost productivity.  Topical analgesic pain relief – as found in patches, creams, gels and sprays – is gaining greater market recognition.  
     “When people self-medicate with over-the-counter oral pain pills, they can ingest inappropriate doses and run the risk of potential drug interactions, which can lead to unintended or unsuspected dangerous side effects, some of which can be as serious as liver failure or heart damage,” says Dr. Sylvia Hesse, a New York based orthopedic medicine specialist.  “By relying on topical analgesic gels, sprays and patches for pain relief - without the use of pills - you can be assured of making a safer choice.”

Salonpas Deep Relieving Gel

 Pam Shriver, a Hall of Fame tennis star, ESPN broadcaster and single mother of three prefers external pain management versus popping pills.  “I’ve been very active my whole life and believe that keeping active into your forties, fifties and beyond is critically important to ensure a happy and healthy life,” says Shriver who is a 22-time Grand Slam Title holder.  “Trying to balance being a mother, broadcaster and recreational athlete, can trigger pain in my lower back and shoulder.  I rely on Salonpas Deep Relieving Gel for targeted, penetrating relief.”

GoodBelly Probiotics is a yummy drink beverage that contains a daily dose of  Lactobacillus plantarum 299v, a probiotic used for digestive health. It is the only beverage like it in the United States. It is kosher, vegan, dairy-free and soy-free. And, I mentioned that it tastes yummy!

GoodBelly is not a treatment or a cure for diseases or disorders. Please, seek professional medical help if you have digestive issues.

On with the 12-Day Challenge!

The challenge begins with drinking one tasty 8 oz. glass of GoodBelly Probiotics a day for 12 days. That is 3 cartons worth. (SRV. $3.49) To participate in the 12-Day Challenge, visit GoodBelly today! And, if you do not LOVE IT, you get your money back!


My eighteen year old daughter, Tara, decided that she wanted to try GoodBelly Probiotics. She has issues with GERD and IBD.

She loves the taste of the juices.She gives it her thumbs up approval. She is a new fan!
