The power of the internet, or quick solutions when cooking

The problem with getting recipes from the Internet is that there will usually be some part of it that is impossible to get, or to understand. For those of us who don’t get our butter in sticks… recipes that feature that measurement can be incomprehensible.

That is, until you find a butter converter. It becomes easier to find the right amount to fulfill the requirements in the recipe.

And, while I loved the Pioneer Woman’s Cajun Chicken on New Year’s Eve – I spent quite a bit of time scouring Norwegian grocery stores looking for Cajun spice mix. It couldn’t be found. However, the power of the Internet came to my aid, with Mary Makes Dinner and Simply recipes each giving off slight variation of Cajun Spice Mix.

Similarly, I just tried my hand at making pizza dough – and the recipe specified a pack of yeast. Yeast does not come in the same size packages in Norway and the US, so figuring out how much should be in there isn’t necessarily easy.

But that’s the beauty of the Internet. You can find out these things, and find substitutes that may work based on flavor profile or consistency.
