measurements in recipes

Teaspoon, Tablespoon, cup, quart - we ALL understand those measurements but, when you mix it up with grams, millimeters etc. - you lose us.

Sadly, I cannot use many of your recipes because they are in measurements we didn't grow up with.

At least provide a translation chart - that would be helpful.

I agree 100% with what you say, you are totally correct. I cannot/will not use if measurements I am comfortable are not used. The internet is international.

Ah, ladies! I denote a bit of rebellion creeping in. You win! I shall try and put up a baking conversion chart as soon as possible.

I agree, I won't or can't use them without the convertion chart. That takes time that I don't want to use looking that up when I can look in my cookbook for basically the same recipes and they are in cups and teaspoons. No offence to anyone. But ml and that really confuses me.

volume measure vs weight
by: Anonymous

The difference in the measurements are volume measure:cup, teaspoon etc., vs weight measurements, I have a King Aurthur cookbook and all they do is weigh measurements they say that it's more accurate, so I got a kitchen scale and when i am doing their recipes I weigh everything.

Hope this helps.
