Better Home Cooking Basics: #20 Eyeball Measurements for Cooking & Measure Exactly for Baking
When I post cooking recipes (think chicken or veggies) you can usually get by with eyeballing the measurements - adding more or less here & there. When I post baking recipes (think chocolate chip cookies & cakes) it's best to use the measurements given exactly. Baking is a more precise chemistry so break out your measure cups & spoons so that the final sweet product rises when it should & cooks evenly without burning on the outside while the inside is soupy & raw (eww!). If you don't like to measure - stick to cooking & find a good bakery in your neighborhood.
