Do You Measure Up?
There are some recipes that don't rely on measurement but rather on taste. If you are cooking a soup or a stew, it is always best to start with a small amount of an ingredient, taste, and then add more if necessary. You can't take back an ingredient once it has been poured but you can add more, so use caution when adding ingredients that don't require measurements.
A successful recipe depends on how you measure up. Remember that many recipes, especially baking recipes, require that exact measurements are used. Rushing through the process can ruin your entire meal so take time to measure carefully and accurately. If a recipe doesn't require exact measurements, remember to start off with just a pinch, a dash or a smidgen and then add as needed.
Measurements can make or break a recipe. Using these rules and tips of measuring you can be confident that your recipe will turn out just the way you planned.
