I do not usually keep sour cream on hand in my refrigerator so when I was asked to make stroganoff and could not get to the store I called my mother asking her if she knew what I should do. I was told that I could use 1 cup of cottage cheese, 5 Tbs of milk and 1 Tbs of lemon juice, put it all in the blender until smooth and creamy.

This kind of substitute ideas are always cool. If you know substitute you don't have to wait to make something particualr untill you go for shopping. I will try it sometime. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

I hate when I have my mind set of making something only to find out that I am missing a simple yet important ingredient, that is why I like when I know of ways that I can substitute

That is great to know. There are times I've run out of sour cream and it is needed in a recipe. It always seems to happen too when I'm wihtout money to go up and buy some. That's the irritating part. That is a good idea though on the cottage cheese and other things. I'll have to keep that tip to save for later on.

Thanks for the tip. That's another one I hadn't heard of before. I usually have cottage cheese, milk and lemon juice in the fridge, even if I don't have sour cream. Now I can't wait to try it. LOL.

That's good to know. I never have sour cream in my refrigerator either, but I usually have the other stuff you named. Thanks for the info.
