Weight Vs.Volume Measurement - Joyofbaking.com *Demo Video* As you know, baking is about precision and accuracy and that's why I've always been an advocate of weight measurements. As you've probably noticed, all the recipes on joyofbaking.com give both volume and weight measurements.

The reason I write recipes in this way is that depending on where you live you may use volume (cup) measurements or you may weigh (grams) your ingredients. I believe the reason home bakers in the United States haven't adopted weight measurements is because digital scales were once hard to find and if you could find one, they were expensive.

The Difference Between Baking Soda and Baking Powder Almost every cook has faced this scenario: you’re following a recipe that requires baking powder but you only have baking soda. What do you do?

Salsa for Freezing or Canning This hasn’t been an easy year for farmers in our area as they’ve struggled with the heat and drought. But one vegetable that thrives in hot sunny weather is the tomato, and right now they are at their peak. If you love fresh tomato-based sauces, this is the time to head to the farmers’ market to stock up! There is not a better time to make large quantities of tomato sauces or salsas. Canning is often the preferred method to store sauces for use later, but freezing is also an option which many prefer—especially those who have large freezer space. healty cooking - Sprouted Kitchen » A tastier take on whole foods. It was funny how similar in sentiment Hugh and my Valentine's cards were. They essentially said "I don't know how the hell we are going to pull all of this off, but I have you, and that's the only reason I believe we're capable and I won't die in the next few months."
