Unfortunately we do. I think the rationale behind that is that in regular house cooking people are more likely to have cups at home than a kitchen balance.

But Google has done it again: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=converting+cups&meta=

If you want tables though, this one is good:

http://www.jsward.com/cooking/conversion.shtml

Do you use cups as measures in Brazil? I thought that was just a US thing. Honestly, it's one of the banes of my life when I find an interesting looking recipe only to find that I then have to spend ages trying to convert all the measures into something I can actually understand. It's not so bad with liquids but dry foods are a nightmare. Why on earth would anyone measure a cup of nuts rather than weighing them?

Incidentally, if anyone knows of a good resource for converting US measures to something more sensible (metric preferably but even Imperial would do), I'd be very grateful.

Thanks. I'd found your second link before. It's about the best I've come across, though it's hardly what I'd call a comprehensive list. As the problems are caused by the use of cups with dry ingredients, the Google link you gave is not much use. Knowing the volume of a cup in ml is only really useful for liquids.

Well, you can always create your own table. I am to buy my own kitchen balance for that. :)

But I'd need to buy American measuring cups. I've never even seen one and if I had some I suppose I could live with using them rather than scales. It is a really weird difference though. Over here (and by here I mean Europe in general not just the UK) I've never known anyone who didn't have a set of kitchen scales and the idea of measuring dry ingredients (particularly if the size can vary a lot, say with chopped nuts or the like) by volume rather than weight is just odd. It seems so incredibly imprecise. I can't imagine how you'd bake that way - that's always struck me as closer to chemistry than cooking given how precise you need to be with your measures.

I'm first visual and palatal with that. I put more or less the same quantity from that one time when it worked. Then I keep tasting to check if it tastes the same. Usually it works. I should get more disciplined though and take notes of measures. :)

Talking about breakfast on the other thread, I remembered a classic Brazilian breakfast food that you can have specially if you eat at coffee shops: the cheese bread. Originally from the rural area of the state of Minas Gerais, it's associated with the large farms of old.

Here's a recipe:

PÃO DE QUEIJO – Cheese bread
Sounds and looks like what we knew as chipa in Paraguay. Never tried making it myself, but this recipe seems simple enough.

Mahshy. Yea, it ain't very pretty but it wasn't cooked yet either.

I like cooking; my personal passion. I could post a ton of pics since I like to photograph my food like a weirdo but I'll spare you guys. :P

No, you are not weird. You are quite normal. It seems many people think what they eat is of great interest to others for some reason. When I didn't think the cellphone could make eating worse with people talking and txting, they now seem really keen on photographing what they are eating and sharing with all their friends not at the table. And talking and txting with those same friends not at the table about the meal.

I've nearly given up on confiscating people's phones.

I've had pretty much nada so far today.

I am thinking beans and sardines tonight. If I could send you the smell of my dinner and my environment about three hours after eating, I would for sure.

It just wouldn't give him the same olfactory thrill about three hours after eating.  And everyone knows that the joy of eating lies as much in the nose as on the tongue.

His willingness to share with you though, is truly touching.

That's what I made yesterday. Today I casseroled the leftovers with onion, carrot and peas. There was enough for tonight's dinner (with chips) and for a good batch of pies.

I figured out how to get some smoke going on my gas grill. My ribs have gotten even awesomer.

That's correct. I'll be going to college in Memphis, so you may or may not catch me, but I'd be down for this.

A1 and Milk...and Fruit Loops...what is wrong with you.

I eat ketchup with everything, but cereal is a big no.

I tried fried bologna with A1... better results, but still not a perfect pairing... I guess my palate is just too refined...  ;D

Well you are in Dayton the whole summer right?

My terrible attempt at Greek cooking. A little early for lentil soup but whatever. Also did potatoes with lemon and garlic. Served with bread and wine. Trying to adhere to Greek eating for a month.

Life isn't worth the effort, much less so cooking...
