a site for those pesky recipes that call for lbs when you have no scale
I just found this site (http://www.barryfarm.com/How_tos/how_many_cups_in_a_pound_of.htm) where you can see how many cups are in a pound of certain foods. For example, I have a recipe that calls for 3lbs. of carrots but I have no scale. The site tells me that each pound of carrots is equivalent to 3 cups of finely shredded carrot.
