keep this handy

often, i am either dividing or doubling recipes and don't feel like sitting there trying to figure out all the conversions.

the following is a useful chart to keep in the kitchen.

click on it to enlarge & print it.

hey beenzzz - thanks :) hope it comes in handy for you.

as you can see converting imperial/standard measures isn't so easy unless you're good at fractions! here in canada, everything is in metric, based on multiples of 10 making it much easier to calculate, but a majority of north american recipes are still in cups and spoon measures.

btw, i scanned the chart and made a jpeg of it since i don't have a webhost for the pdf file of it, so it's kind of a crappy copy but still legible -- i hope. if you can't see it well after printing, please let me know so i can reformat it somehow. Tx.

my mom never uses measurements.
So when i learned to cook i had to learn by average. It drives me crazy sometimes. Especially when I have to but oil...

thankx a bunch for sharin...

lol, PJ, my parents also always measured with hands and eyes unless they had to be very specific with soemthing they were making. almost impossible to copy down a recipe!

hope the list helps you.
