Conversions

As of one my European readers reminded me, not everyone thinks in terms of teaspoons, tablespoons, and cups.

And in all honesty, our system is unnecessarily confusing and complex.  Who actually knows how many tablespoons are in half a cup?  And how do you halve 1/3 of a cup with your standard measuring tools?  The English system is nothing but mistakes waiting to happen.

For those unfamiliar with our system, and for those familiar with our system, but who still don’t understand it, I’ve provided the following conversion tables.
