    Sadiqa, thanks for the alcohol substitutes. These are great! I rarely
    have any alcohol in the house and when I come across a recipe with
    alcohol in it, I skip it. Now I have an alternative!

    These are a great idea, sometimes recipes I use call for wine and I just don't have any around.

    For the cherry flavoring you can also use a touch of almond extract, it tastes like cherries in small quantities

    Thanks for sharing.
    Just paying in forward in kindness!

    These are awesome substitutes and convenient for me too because I have most everything for every substitution ~ thank you so much! ...Now, is there any substitutions for cooking wines or cooking sherry?

    This may be a silly question, but is there anything that can be used to substitute for beer in a batter coating for fried foods?

    Thanks so much for posting these substitutes. I hate to go out and buy alcohol just for a recipe especially when it calls for such a small amount. These are great because I have most of these items or can buy it and use it for other things.
