I love the self-portrait. Gorgeous!

Did you know that in the US, it's very rare for people to own and use scales in the kitchen? I'm learning that it's common in Europe, as I read baking recipes that call for solid ingredients in measurements of grams (we use cups, which is technically a fluid measurement, so I'm guessing not quite as precise).

Thank you so much!

Yes, I realised people in the US use cups and teaspoons and so on when I began reading recipes online. I'm always trying to figure how many litres/millilitres a cup translates to. And I've come to understand that New Zealand cups aren't the same as US cups and all of this is so confusing!

But in the end, I realise that I have a lot of recipes that I'm so used to make that I don't weight my ingredients and just estimate the volume I need. I think that if I had to write them down, using fluid measurements would be easier!
