I bake and cook a lot of food in general, but one problem I always seem to have is that I never have all of my measuring utensils with me. This presents some problems:
- How much is a ounce, cup, pint etc?
- Why not use other cups to measure? - How am I suppose to know the unit of measuring for every cup, bowl or spoon in my house?
I've tried using other utensils, but that hasn't really worked. It's also incredibly inconvenient to go to a store every time I don't have them.
Note that it doesn't have to be exact at the measuring, just close. Anyone that cooks knows that a extra bit of whatever doesn't really matter.
Is there a method for measuring ingredients without proper measuring equipment?
