    I got the last one wrong. I said cake flour. Iguess you could make it heavier, if you packed it in, right?

    Great quiz.

    Thanks Cchui!


    Amazing how fast you forget things like that when you don't use it. I am so use to the metric system I can't recall much if the imperial system.

    Found this in a kitchenware catalog:

    The three 4 inch long measuring spoons, link by a split ring, measure a dash, a pinch, and a smidgen, respectively, and are a great help when exact measurements are not supplied but a consistent result is desired....

    perhaps im worng, but from where i stand,

    1 pinch approx 7 grams
    1 teaspoon approx 15 grams
    1 tablespoon approx 30 grams
    1 cup is 250 grams
    1 kg is 1000 grams

    sometimes and i means sometimes (specific or relative gravity laws applying) liquid and mass weights definitely differ. However, as a token weight measure being used, unless the specific or relative weight differs to a point where weighing is the only option, you should be able to convert metric to imperial.

    i.e. 1 pound is approximately 500 to 550 grams metric.

    I bought that set of spoons at Walmart. I don't use them much, but they are SOOO cute.

    You're not the only cook who doesn't know that stuff. I still have to help the chef and the sous at my job, when they can't figure out how many so-and-so's in a so-and-so.

    I know Cchiu but it's really too bad because metric makes things so much easier.

    I don't know why you don't convert to the metric system. It is so much easier to use.
