No eggs? Recipe substitutions to save the day!

So you are making a cake or some other awesome dessert, you have everything already mixing in the mixer and you go to add the eggs. You look in the fridge and find no eggs!! EEK!! If you are anything like me this has happened more than once and not just with eggs either. I have forgotten oil, butter, heavy cream and a few other ingredients.  Well after I saw my friend Greta post on Facebook last night about forgetting oil at the store I decided to compile a substitutions list for all us moms that suffer mommy brain from time to time. You may be surprised by some of the substitutions you can use.
