people talking shiitake about a vegan diet (no energy, candida, sickness) but will follow a diet that has 2 green smoothies for 2 meals and a glass of hot water as a snack (only if you need it!)...

Maybe I'm just too American to understand, but the idea of weighing things to bake seems ridiculously complicated- put more on, take some off, keep waiting till it's right, whereas I scoop, level, and bam. done.


But-

1. Put bowl on scales
2. Add stuff slowly, till right weight
2a. Don't worry if slightly over- weight is more accurate than volume anyway
3. Add next thing on top
4. Put stuff away
...
X. Wash one bowl

As opposed to

1. Find damn cups in bottom of drawer
2. Attempt to get scoop into bag
3. Tip ingredient on floor while attempting to level
4. Ask self if cup should be packed, or loose, or what
5. Tip ingredient into bowl, leave half in cup (due to previously measuring something wet) and inadvertently tip rest over cookbook in soggy clump
6. Give up, survey state of kitchen
7. Move house

I made a seitan recipe from an American cookbook last night and a bread recipe from a UK website this afternoon.

American recipe:

Get a cup.
Measure almost all the things using that cup into a bowl.
Do the dry things first so the same cup can be used for the wet things after. Smart!
Get a teaspoon. Measure all the other things using that teaspoon into that bowl.
BAM.

UK recipe:
Rummage around till able to locate and drag the scales out of the cupboard.
Find something to scoop the flour out the bag with because otherwise it's going to poof the fork everywhere and mess things up.
Still have to dirty-up teaspoons for things because really recipes here still measure that way for bicarb and yeast and salt and whathavye.
Don't have a set of scales that reset their weight/go above a toatie wee weight so have to use another damn bowl to weigh out the other ingredients that have to be added later.
peas in the scales because they are annoying and suck and surely weighing one's peas is funner than dicking about with flour?

Hahaha.

What I was trying to say is either is as complicated or as easy as you make it.

We've got another unit of measurement here in Scotland but it's DIFFERENT AND BETTER SO FORK YOUSE ALL!

YES TO THIS. I choose not to eat animal products. Ughh, and then when omnis are eating some nasty glob of dead animals glued together with cheese, and say "Oh man, this is so good. If only you could eat some!" And i'm like, i could eat some, i just choose not to because i care more about the billions of animals who spend their entire lives suffering than i do eating crepe.

I say "can't" when I'm talking about myself and get aggravated when other people say I "can't"

I'm impossible to please.

Measurement by how much a sock puppet theater sock might fit in their wee hand.

I was pretty happy when I finally splurged on a digital nutritional scale - before then I had el cheapo twisty-base, no-tare analog scale with lines a millimeter apart from one another representing 25g, and the occasional recipe that would measure small amounts by weight also just got ridiculous. Sometimes one is easier, sometimes another - it depends strongly on the recipe. I've been known to write weights into volume recipes and volumes into weight recipes because life is short. Also on most US food products, the label will tell you how to convert between the two (eg my bag o' king arthur flour says "1/4 c (30g)" on it).

For many years not having a scale denied me the proper enjoyment of some British cookbooks. Now all I need to fret about is not being able to find any of the correct ingredients when I make recipes from European cookbooks!

I was debating the "can't" versus "won't" or "don't" thing as I was reading all the responses, and confusing myself. But I think this is what it comes down to.

Actually I now live in N. Ireland so I use their measurements, they're just like everyone else's except we call them by the name of someone who used to have a scoop about that size in the 1950s down near Ballyskibwobblet.

1 Wee Jimmy flour
2 Old Maeve milk
1 Young Maeve sugar (she's done ever so well for her self)
3 Pauline's Oil (and the least said about THAT the better!)

Mix well, turn into a shuch and leave.
