Kitchen Hint

I was thinking today about what in the world I could share... just because I didn't want to dwell on our continuing insurance issues with Mercy. Anyway-

I thought of something that I do, which I am not sure many others do. I have a sheet of paper with "Cheats" to look at... for example, 12 t. = 4 T. = 1/4 cup. Things like that... you need these things when you multiply recipes by 4 on a regular basis...

I have this paper plus my bread recipe taped on the INSIDE of my baking cupboard... so it is always easy to find and use.

Simple, and since most of you don't have things walk off to new places regularly, you don't need to have this. But if any of you are driven insane trying to find the same recipe over and over... try taping it to the inside of your cupboard!


  1. I actually printed these on a magnet sheet (you can get at an office supply store) and have them stuck to the side of my fridge. They're pretty ones made to be cutout that I found somewhere online years ago.

  2. Here is the link to where I got my conversion sheets to cut out. (As I mentioned in my earlier comment)

  3. I used to tape stuff to the inside of my cupboards all the time. I never thought about recipes though -- what a fab idea!

    Hope you have a great day!

  4. I printed off a cute thing from Martha Stewart Living with measurement equivalents, which I lamented, stuck on a magnet (you know, those fake credit cards you're always getting in the mail) and keep on my fridge. But I never thought of multiplying ingredients to fit my family. What a great idea!
