I dropped a large can of spaghetti sauce on my tile floor and actually cracked a tile. Is there an easy way for me to replace the tile or should I call a professional?

RE: cracked tile :(
It depends on your ability. If it is a full tile that is easily accessible you can most likely do it yourself. Start by using a grout-scraping tool to remove the grout. Then chisel away the tile and thinset making sure not to disturb the surrounding tiles. Finally set the new tile back in place with thinset, wait 24 hours, then grout in.
