How to convert measurements in your recipes

Posted on

I don’t know about you but I hate when I am reading a recipe that calls for an ingredient in grams but the ingredient I have is measured in ounces.  Pampered Chef came out with a conversion chart that is a two-sided magnet… probably one of my favorite things that I’ve ordered through them. I thought I’d share the information with you J

Measure Equivalents

1 tbs = 3 tsp = 0.5 fl. oz. = 15 mL

¼ cup = 4 tbsp = 2 fl. oz. = 60 mL

1/3 cup = 5 tbsp + 1 tsp = 2.5 fl. oz. = 75 mL

½ cup = 8 tbsp = 4 fl. oz. = 125 mL

2/3 cup = 10 tbsp + 2 tsp = 5 fl. oz. = 150 mL

¾ cup = 12 tbsp = 6 fl. oz. = 175 mL

1 cup = 16tbsp = 8 fl. oz. = 250 mL

2 cups = 1 pint = 16 fl. oz. = 500 mL

4 cups = 1 quart = 32 fl. oz. = 1 liter

2 quarts = ½ gallon = 64 fl. oz. = 1.9 liters

4 quarts = 1 gallon = 128 fl. oz. = 3.8 liters

1 large egg, beaten = 3 tbsp = 1.fl. oz. = 45 mL

About tinazeien

A little about me….. I’ve worked in healthcare a little over 18 years, 5 ½ of those years working with midwives. I love being involved with families that are expecting an addition to their family! Currently I am in school working towards getting my nursing degree so I can work in labor and delivery. From there I might go into OB ultrasonography. The whole pregnancy and child birth experience is so amazing I’m finding it hard to decide exactly what I want to be when I grow up! ☺ When I’m not working or putting my nose into text books, I spend as much time as I can with my daughters who are 14 & 18 years old (teenagers are quite an adventure!) I also enjoy spending time with friends and family. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by my weekly recipes, one of my biggest passions is to cook! I love spending my weekends finding new recipes to experiment with and playing hostess at my home. Most of the recipes I am going to try to post here are on the healthier side or geared towards vegetarians but I’ll also be sneaking in a few deserts here and there…. We all need a little decadence once in a while right?! I look forward to hearing if you have enjoyed these recipes as much as my family has! Bon Appétit ☺
