When I’m trying a new recipe, sometimes I cut it in half. If it’s not to my family’s liking, I’m not left with too much food no one wants to eat. I came across The Common Cook’s How-Many Guide to Kitchen Conversions on Pinterest that will make easy work of converting recipes. I’ve printed it out and hung it on my refrigerator.

It’s so well done, that I contacted the designer, Shannon Lattin, for permission to share it with you. I know many of you are home cooks and would appreciate this handy guide that lets you know that if can’t find your 1/3 cup measuring cup, you can use five tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon and get the same measurement.

Shannon Lattin is a designer for hire at S.B.LattinDesign, and this guide is one of the examples on her website of the work she does.
