What's a cup, for goodness' sake?
I'm curmudgeonly about all this - my scales do ounces and grammes, but when American units are used, I have to search for conversion tables. And then I generally forget about the pint thing - "a pint's a pound the world around". Sheesh.
Can I humbly suggest that people always include metric measurements in their recipes? I know that not everything is actually measured - a 'handful' or a 'slosh' are fine.
It may be a pain to do this - but just remember that you're keeping me happy, and you'll find it all worthwhile.
