So, there I am, minding my own business...just surfing Pinterest like...well, like the Pinterest junkie I am.  All of a sudden, I came across one of the most useful things ever.  OK, maybe not THE most useful.  And maybe not EVER.  But, it was really cool nonetheless.  

I can never remember conversions for liquids or baking or whatever.  It doesn't come up all that often, and the fact that we live in The Future with access to the entire Internet means that it's not that big of a deal to look up conversions when I need them.  However, I saw this awesome picture yesterday, and now...I just won't need to look these up anymore.  They are forever cemented in my brain just because of this one, awesome mnemonic from the blog Beyond the Grades.

I wish someone would have taught me this a long time ago so I would remember gallons, quarts, pints, and cups! For the visual learner

2 cups = 1 pint
2 pints = 1 quart
4 quarts = 1 gallon

Brilliant, right?  It was so cool that I decided to see if I could come up with one on my own.  I have a hard time keeping track of all my measuring spoons and cups, so I thought some dry measurement conversions would be pretty helpful for me to memorize.  Here's what I came up with:

Dry Ingredient Baking Conversions

3 tsp = 1 TBS
4 TBS = 1/4 cup 

I've pretty much always wondered in the back of my mind just how many teaspoons were in a tablespoon!
