I'm from the UK. The conversions I get confused with are for the dry ingredients. If a recipe says 1 cup of flour or sugar, what weight should I be using? (either pounds/ounces or grammes would help me).
Re:

Yes it may get confusing, I started to get used. I am going to post an article with ingredient equivalents pretty soon, this will help you much when measuring ingredients from cups to grammes or pounds. As for sugar or flour this might help you:

1 cup (240 ml) granulated sugar = 200 g

1 cup (240 ml) all purpose flour = 125 g

 

Re:

I just posted the article I was telling you about ingredient equivalents, in case it still interest you.

This conversions only work with U.S. metric system.
