Notes to Remember

Every perfect cooking requires precise measurements. Note that cups can be of different sizes. Different sizes of cups can hold different amounts of ingredients.

You must use a standard US cup that will contain 16 tablespoons, or the measurements will vary.

Be specific with your units. Keep the measurements limited to units that you are familiar with. It will avoid any confusion while measuring.

Note that measuring the volume of liquid and weight of dry ingredients is different from each other. Try to use the appropriate units for each.

Measure your ingredients according to your needs and you will have a cleaner kitchen and shorter cooking time.
