T HOUSEHOLD HINTS Subsitute cocoa powder for chocolate HELOISE Hng Features -4 Dear Heloise: I wanted to make a recipe that called for a square of chocolate. Unfortunately, I didn't have a square of chocolate and didn't want to make a trip to the store for just one item. Can you tell me if there is a substitution I could use next time? Thanks so much for any help you can give me. — Ginny Horton, San Antonio, Texas Dear Ginny: Good news! There is a great and easy substitute when you are stuck. For 1 square of unsweetened chocolate, use 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon solid vegetable shortening. Remember that when you substitute any items in recipes, especially when making candy or fudge, the consistency and-texture will not be the same. Good luck, happy baking and chocolate hugs. — Heloise Dear Heloise: Hi! Since retirement, my dad has turned into an excellent cook. He has lots of cookbooks, which he follows to a T. When he first started baking pies, he called my mom at work one day saying he searched the cabinets for an hour and still can't find the meringue! — Debbie Whitson, Greenville, Texas Dear Debbie: At least he called your mom instead of making a trip to the store! We love these humorous kitchen tales. Please write in and share yours. — Heloise Dear Heloise: Around our house, potatoes are a must for many of our meals, but I often find peeling them to be a messy experience. When peeling them over the trash can, my aim always seems to be for the floor. So to save my back from bending, and the extra cleanup, I take a plastic shopping bag (I always save them) and lay it on the kitchen table. I peel the potatoes onto the bag. When I am finished, I take the handles and turn the bag inside out. The peelings are neatly contained and easy to carry to the trash can. — Carol Graham, Cygnet, Ohio Dear Heloise: When I use tomato paste, I open both ends of the can and remove one end and push the rest through with the one lid. All the tomato paste goes through without having to use a spoon or knife to get it all out. — George A. McLauchlan, Southbury, Conn.
