Conversion Table

To make it easy for everyone to follow my recipes, every recipe on my website now includes metric weight and measures, Imperial and American cup measurements. 

Even though you don't need a conversion table for my recipes, I have included one on my website.

I do advise using electric scales to measure weight as different food has different density. You can buy really good, quite inexpensive electric scales these days.
