Wall Street JournalIf you're building a cookbook library or looking for a last-minute gift, pick up a copy of "The Food Substitutions Bible," by David Joachim. The newly released second edition has hundreds of new ideas for substitutions in the kitchen, whether the issue is cooking techniques, equipment or, of course, ingredients for recipes. (Don't like the calories in whipped cream? Evaporated milk, which whips up nicely, is a good, low-calorie alternative.) Bon appétit!
Today's Diet and Nutrition Magazine - Kate JacksonEditor's Pick. It may not be the first book to catch your eye on the bookstore shelf, and it won't dazzle you with stunning photography or passionate prose.

How many times have you begun cooking only to find that you don't have everything you need? No need to throw up your hands or toss your plans. Just turn to Joachim. If you cook a lot, you'll find his classic to be a prized possession -- an indispensable guide that will save the day when you're faced with last-minute dilemmas or missing ingredients and save you from more than a few ruined meals and disappointing dinner parties.
