How many cups in a pint?  Quite often the most frustrating thing when cooking from a recipe is the need to deal with conversions. For some reason those pesky little numbers have never stuck in my head! Like there are 2 cups in a pint or 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon. I remember back in school working in the bake shop, and always relying on the very large cheat sheet stenciled on the wall. It used to drive the Chef crazy that I couldn’t remember such a “simple” thing! To this day, I find myself reaching for my phone to ask Siri these very questions mid-recipe.

While perusing Pinterest the other day, I stumbled across a great cheat sheet, posted by Karen, on her blog “Lavender & Lovage” ( This sheet not only has those basic conversions I am always needing to reference but it adds in cooking times & temps, substitutions (cause if you are like me, there’s always some ingredient you forgot to buy!), and much more.

I don’t know about you but I plan on printing this sheet out and putting it in the kitchen for easy reference!
