Dry Measure Equivalents in Cooking

I have this handy dandy little chart I’d like to share with you… it gives you Dry Measure Equivalents in Cooking….

I am constantly altering recipes to fit the number of servings I need…. a lot of recipes start out being servings for 3, 4 or even 6… well… we’re two of us.. and while we love leftovers… we don’t want them from every meal… so I do a little arithmetic and alter the recipes…

If you follow this blog… you know I make most of my own seasoning blends… Taco, Fajita, Chili and Cajun Seasoning… to name a few…. those start out small… and I increase the quantities to make up enough to fill small jars… so they’re ready to go whenever I need them…

The Equivalents chart makes things a lot easier … I just multiply out the quantities to however many times the recipe I want….then I convert them to the larger measures to make measuring a snap and I’m done in minutes…

I put this chart on one of my “pages” at the top of the blog … so you can easily use this reference whenever you need it… just put me on your favorites and when you want to use the chart…pop back!

I hope you find this helpful!
