Here are some different conversions and substitutions.  If you know of any great substitution or conversion websites, please let me know

To substitute cake yeast (what is available in CH) from active dry yeast (available in the US - a lot of my cookbooks), or instant dry yeast, this website is great.

Here is a link to make some fast food recipes at home.  Including Taco Bell, Chipotle, movie popcorn, KFC, Stuffed Crust Pizza, Carl's Jr, McDonalds Bic Mac, Fries, In and Out Burger.  These are all things I will make when I find some time and I will let you know how they turn out.  If you try them, please share the results! :-)
