Fluid Measurement Filler & Cheat Chart for Your Family Cookbook

Sometimes I have senior moments that can be embarrassing when I am making recipes from a family cookbook. Like yesterday, when I wanted to double a recipe, I wasn’t sure how many pints there are in a quart. Isn’t that silly?

Yet, unless you do conversion math every day, you can find yourself in such a recipe pickle where you have to really sit down and do the math. (I readily admit I am no good at metric measurements. I just think of liters as big quarts to make it easy on my old brain – sorry all you metric lovers out there). But even the simple stuff is harder to remember if you don’t pay attention when you cook.

To refresh my memory, I reviewed our fantastic Kitchen Conversion Chart, a marvelously useful kitchen tool (that I printed out and now keep folded up in my purse), and extracted a few fluid measurement equivalents from it in the little cheat chart below.

When you make your own family cookbook, this little bit of information might be handy to include as a reference (or cheat chart, really, as in my case).

If you want the whole two-page Kitchen Conversion Chart to include when you make your own cookbook, you can download it from our website by clicking this link to the Kitchen Conversion Chart and adding it when you print your family cookbook from our cookbook software.

Now I can put away my trusty little pocket calculator!

Happy Cookbooking,
