I've always used Arm and Hammer and Clabber Girl for soda and baking powder. I just buy whatever for cornstarch - they all seen the same, as long as it's a recognizable name. (not that I go through that much of it anyway)

Not done that but do mix up the DVD and TV controllers.

I baked my Amish Friendship Cake tonight. When it was time to add the eggs, I grabbed the three eggs that were up in the refrigerator door. I figured James had put them there right before our vacation (although I couldn't understand why). I whacked the first egg on the side of the bowl, and thank goodness it didn't fall into the batter. They were eggs I had boiled around August 1st! I had put them in the door and then had forgotten them. That wouldn't have been a very "friendly" friendship cake! Thank goodness James had thought to buy eggs yesterday because I wouldn't have had enough without them.

I certainly mean that baking soda and cornstarch are not interchangable - but they both sometimes come in yellow boxes.....
