Use Google to convert kitchen measures quickly

I’m a big fan of internet recipes, especially sites like allrecipes.com that have ratings, comments, and even alternate version hints.

One thing to know, though, is the recipes sometimes aren’t listed in standard normal form.  You may find them out of order, for example, or expressed in unusual amounts.  For example, one of our family favorite bread recipes came down from AllRecipes with 13 tablespoons of water required.  That’s hardly convenient, and prone to mis-counting and mis-measuring.  Not that the amount of water required for one loaf of bread is the same as the same recipe tomorrow, of course, but you get the idea.

We used to have a conversion chart for such things, but Google is so much faster, like this.

You can use the same idea to find out how cups of flour are in a five pound bag, how many teaspoons are in an ounce of water, or anything else you’re wondering about.
