Measurement Conversion Guide

Cathy Lea.
Some recipes make too much for us, some make too little. What happens when there is a need to make a recipe feed a different number of people?

Changing a recipe to make half or double is easy, but it is harder to make a different fraction less or more. Sometimes it gets tricky to get the measurements just right because the unit of measurement is hard to evenly divide or multiply. So I use the following guide to convert down to a smaller unit of measurement where the math is easier to get where I want.
