Julie, using weights to measure for baking is more accurate!

It's more accurate and i think it's easier to measure weights. It's also easier to cut a recipe in half or double it, especially if you use metric weights.

Thanks, Joey. I was clueless.

I use metric measurements, a scale to weigh most things, and for simple things, I stick with the volumes.
