Measurement Conversions

by Jeanne Benedict

It’s wonderful that we have access to global recipe sources, but the metric weight conversion to Standard American Measurement can sometimes squash one’s ambition to try a new recipe. So, I’ve compiled and included as much info as possible to help you convert recipes written by weight into preparations according to their approximate volume equivalents. Please share any comments if you have anything to add!
