So I have this friend, who is an amazing photographer. I’m not a photography snob by any means – I couldn’t distinguish the lighting used or how different lenses create different textures – but I do know the difference between someone who has talent and someone who just has a fancy camera and a pretty flower within reach. And let me tell you, my girl has some talent! You can see for yourself HERE or follow her blog HERE.
So when I moved into this new apartment I really wanted to display some of her work. I was trolling through her site when I found this picture:
I love it! It adds a modern, fruity flare to my kitchen. I especially love the picture of the pears, they seem to have so much character!
Thanks Em! And to everyone else who may be near the Ohio area, hit this girl up for photos!

In a follow up to THIS post, I did end up making another visual measurement picture. This one is a little more convoluted, but is actually pretty handy as I've referenced to it twice already.
8 oz = 1 cup
2 Tablespoons = 1 oz
3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon (You might not be able to see it, but there are small white "teaspoons" tucked inside the tablespoon.)
I currently have these images printed out and above my spice racks.
This is what you do when you work at a university and it's summertime. Well, this and rent lecture halls so that you and your co-workers can eat breakfast and watch the world cup on the screen projection.

I’ve been very slack on updating. It’s not that I don’t have things to post, I’ve just been pretty lazy about it. So I’ll start up again with an quick post about this great way to remember kitchen measurements that I found HERE.
If you’re like me, then you can never remember how many cups are in a gallon or pints in a quart, but with this quick image it’s much easier to figure things out. I made my own image below:
4 Q(uarts) in a G(allon)
2 P(ints) in a Q(uart)
16 C(cups) in a G(allon) --- It's so quick and versitile!
I would be a happy camper if this image caught on! Right when I saw it, I immediately wished I knew a friend with a printing press that could make a simple print of this for me. I could definitely see it in my kitchen as a classy measurement reminder (along with the images that I’ll be putting up that my oh-so-amazing-friend, Emily, took for me; but more of that later). As for now, it will have to go as a print-out on the side of my fridge.
Anyone else know of some great measurement tips like these for the kitchen?
