i share a lot of recipes here on the blog, and i thought it might be helpful to also share a few tips/tricks in the kitchen. so, i decided to start a new series called kitchen basics. to kick things off, let's take a look at cutting a recipe in half . . .
sometimes a recipe yields entirely too much. i often find myself cutting recipes in half so that i don't have so many leftovers. sure, it's easy to cut a recipe in half when there are measurements like 1 cup or 1/2 teaspoon, but it's a bit more confusing when there are measurements like 1/3 cup. if you're cutting a recipe in half, how do you measure 1/6 of a cup? well, i came up with this little chart that breaks it down for you. hope you find it helpful!
