I found a version of this chart over on Like Mam Used To Bake and I thought it was a great idea - I have printed it out and stuck it to the inside of my baking press (cupboard). I am particularly happy to have the stick of butter measurement here, and I find it really hard to get that simple conversion into my thick skull!!!!
P.S. No reason for the photo of the calves other than I think they are so cute (even when they have kept me awake all night!!!)
Please forgive the fact that the chart is all over the place!!!!!! I just can't figure out how to get it right.
