Cooking Conversions

I was born in the UK, then became an Australian Citizen and now I live in the US. We all have different measurements and temperature guides when it comes to cooking. It’s confusing – no two ways about it. I prefer the metric guide with a few cups thrown in for good measure so all my recipes are written that way. If you’re on a different page, here’s a handy guide to keep you on track.
