I hope these equivalents are close!

Thanks! Didn't know how to change into the other system...

Generally speaking, almost all cooks in the US measure dry ingredients by VOLUME, as measured in Cups, and shortening and butter are usually in Cups but easily translate to weight (1 lb of butter= 4 sticks = 2 Cups, so 1 Cup of butter is half a pound, and 2 sticks) Many of us have liquid measuring cups which measure in both Cups AND milliliters, but I happen to have a scale that I can measure the weight of ingredients....

With favorite recipes in metric measurements, I just weigh out the amount, and then figure out what the "Cup-page" measurement is and then write it down right into the recipe, so I don't have to do it every time. Purists shudder at how "off" some measurements can be, depending on whether the flour is whole wheat or even sifted, but I try not to let it bother me.  Roll Eyes The temperatures, I had to look up.

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness.

Would love some hand knitted socks for my big foot boyfriend.

I think I just gained 5 lbs looking at the pictures of this pie! *drool!*

Growing up, my mom always baked her chocolate pies. Smiley
