Cupboard Door Food Storage Reference Chart

Recently I was cooking with some and someone asked how many tablespoons were in a cup.  I shouted out “sixteen.”  We got to talking and I mentioned that I have a chart  I keep taped to the inside of my cupboard door.  It has all the cooking measurement (like that there is 4 tablespoons in 1/4 cup)  and all the food storage conversions (like 2 medium eggs equals 2 tablespoons whole egg powder plus 1/4 cup water).  This way when I am cooking I don't have to look it up or figure it out.

They wanted a copy.  I thought you might too.

Here is the printable chart.  It is a Google document so remember to print from the Google document menu NOT the web browser menu. 


The thing I always have to look up is how much yeast is in one packet. (2 1/2 tsp.)  For some reason I can never remember that. 

What cooking info are you always looking up? 


  1. I'm always looking up cooking temps for meats. I like to use an instant read thermometer to make sure my meat is done the way I want it (rare or medium, etc). Nothing is more upsetting than spending a fortune on a quality piece of meat and over cooking it and eating dried out meat.

  2. I agree the cooking temperature for meats is tricky. Maybe I'll make a meat chart too. Good idea.

  3. LOL My sister converted a recipe for me once- we were making several times the original recipe. I started realizing that something just wasnt right. Cme to find she had the wrong conversion for Tbsp to cup memorized.
