I grew up using the American Standard system and even though I weigh some of my ingredients, I still covet my measuring cups. Additionally, since math was not my strongest subject, I found it easier to work with what I knew rather than convert all of my recipes and most of the recipes in my very extensive cookbook collection. I realize that many people throughout the world use the metric system and therefore I have a couple of resources for you. My go-to, all time favorite one is the gold standard of cookbooks, Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker. They have every conversion needed to bake and/or cook whatever you are in the mood for. For those of you who do not own this book, I also found a basic conversion chart on parents-talk.com.
