Thanks so much for posting this! I prefer to use garlic cloves, but don’t really feel like running to the store right now , and I have garlic powder in the cabinet.
I’m new to cooking with herbs and spices and find this infomation invaluable. I took your idea and taped it to the front of my cookbook.
I’m cooking Eggplant Parmesan and can’t get out to get the fresh basil so I needed to know the equivalent for the spice because I have dried basil.
I will be posting this list in my cookbook Thanks again Have a GREAT DAY!
