Conversions

At the moment, I have a lot of American recipes and very few European ones. This drives my friends and family back in Germany crazy and really complicates their efforts when cooking or baking anything from my blog.

Hopefully it get’s easier with the conversions below, if not, just email me and I will be happy to help and answer any questions.
