Do you know that I'm half German and half Swedish? And do you know I always say I'm backwards because I'm half Swedish and don't like coffee and half German and don't like beer?!

Do you know that the best pecan pie I've ever had was made by my second cousin's wife, and neither of them are southern?

Do you know that in Canada, some of us have a tendancy to use "C" temps when it's cold (such as saying, "burrrrr it's -10 out there") and "F" temps when it's hot (like, "wow, can you believe that it got up to 102 degrees today?"). Do you think that people in other countries do that too?

I sort of grew up with both so it's fine for me, though it might take me a sec to give an exact conversion off the top of my head. It's funny too because I sometimes work in inches and sometimes in centimetres. And when it comes to cooking, though I'm an eternal fan of measuriing in "cups", I've gotten quite accustomed to cooking in "grams" too. What do you use in Germany, cups or grams? (or something else?)

don`t you think, it`s easier to measure if you just take a cup?
