COMMON ABBREVIATIONS

I generally use imperial (volumetric) measurements because most cookbooks in the States still use this system for reasons I cannot fathom. For those unfamiliar with these measurements (which I firmly believe were invented by chipmunks on crack), here are a few useful conversions and abbreviations:

C: Cup
tsp: teaspoon
tbsp: tablespoon
g: gram
oz: ounce

Good to know:
1. There are 3 teaspoons in 1 tablespoon
2. There are 16 tablespoons in 1 Cup
3. There are 8 fluid ounces in 1 Cup
4. There are 2 Cups in 1 pint
5. There are 4 Cups in 1 quart (which is roughly equal to 1 liter)
