Cooking conversions

I was cooking up a storm from my mother's cook book this weekend (wait for the biriyani update, coming up soon!)

The metrics proved to be a challenge, given that her notes were in grams and litres. I kinda made it up, but this morning combed the web for helpful online converters. The most helpful one I found was simply called OnlineConversion.com. Very handy ways to swap one kind of measuring scale for another.

Enjoy.

I like OC a lot. In addition, if you are in a real rush, you can use Google (or the Google toolbar - www.google.com/toolbar - if you have it installed). Just type in, in the search box, terms such as:

2 kg = ? lbs
2 litres = ? gallons
5 US tablespoon = ? US cup
