Going between measurements, or increasing/decreasing recipes can involve a lot of math.  That is, unless you know off the top of your head how many ounces are in a cup, or how many teaspoons are in a pint and so forth.  Here is a chart to help you get to the bottom of any conversion.  It is easy to remember but I keep it on a scrap of paper on the refrigerator for quick reference when I can’t be bothered to use my memory.
