Commonly Used Measurements & Equivalents


I found this on Allrecipes.com and thought I would share it. I cut recipes in half all the time or can’t find a measuring cup or spoon that I need. I never want to take the time to figure out the conversions or what else I can use so I consult this really great chart! Also Allrecipes.com is a great website to find a lot of wonderful recipes. Here is the direct link.
