conversion

These are the most commonly conversions I had to look for.  

1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 237 milliliters = 8 fluid ounces = 1/2 pint 

1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons = 118.5 mililiters = 4 fluid ounces

1 pound = 16 ounces = 453.6 grams

2 pounds = 32 ounces = 907.2 grams 

1 ounce = 28 grams

100 grams = 3.5 ounces

Note: When I look at recipes with any sort of meat I basically think of 1 pound being half a kilo and 2 pounds being one kilo. 

1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = 1/2 fluid ounce = 15 cc = 15 ml

1 teaspoon = 5 ml

1 gallon = 3.78 liters = 3785 ml = 128 fluid ounces

1 liter = about 34 fluid ounces = 0.26 gallons 

Butter
1 tablespoon butter = 1/2 ounce = about 14 grams
2 tablespoons butter = 1 ounce = 28.5 grams
1 stick of butter = 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons = 4 ounces = 1/4 pound = 113.5 gr

The weight of a cup or a spoon of a dry ingredient will depend on the ingredient. See below much a cup of sugar and flour weigh. 

Sugar
1 cup = 7 ounces = 200 grams
1 tablespoon = .4 ounces = 12.5 grams

Flour
1 cup = 4.4 ounces = 125 grams
1 tablespoon = .3 ounces = 7.8 grams

 If you need to convert other amounts of capacity and volume I suggest going to

NOTE:

In culinary the best recipes are the ones that use 'weight' instead of cups and spoons. It is a more precise way of measuring the ingredients. However most recipes nowadays use cups and spoons as their way of measuring the ingredients.
