I would love to make this recipe, it looks and sounds yummy, but I am not sure how to convert it. I am from the US, and unfamiliar with the terminology. Thank you.
CHELSEA: Hi there, most of the measurements should be the same (cups, tsp etc). You will just need to convert the grams to ounces, which can be done by typing the conversion into google.
