Are you still trying to decide what to make for tomorrow’s big dinner?

I’ve compiled a list of Thanksgiving-worthy recipes for easy access. I wish you  a happy holiday and hope you get to share some wonderful food this week with the people you love.

Also, here are some basic baking substitutions in case you run out of something (don’t go to the store unless you absolutely must!):

1 cup buttermilk = 1 tablespoon vinegar plus enough milk to make 1 cup (let stand 5 minutes) or 2 tablespoons lemon juice plus enough milk to make 1 cup (let stand 5 minutes)

1 ounce unsweetened chocolate = 3 tablespoons unsweeteneed cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter or margarine

1 tablespoon cornstarch = 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup dark corn syrup = 3/4 cup light corn syrup plus 1/4 cup molasses, maple syrup, or dark honey

1 cup sour cream = 1 cup plain yogurt, 3/4 cup buttermilk plus 1/3 cup butter, or 1 cup creme fraiche

1 cup white cake flour = 7/8 cup white all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup honey = 3/4 cup molasses plus 1/2 cup granulated sugar or 3/4 cup maple syrup plus 1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup fresh whole milk = 1/2 cup evaporated whole milk plus 1/2 cup water or 1 cup water plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup white granulated sugar = 1 3/4 cups confectioner’s sugar

1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar = 7/8 cup white granulated sugar plus 1/4 cup molasses, maple syrup, dark corn syrup, or honey
