Liquid vs. dry measure

Kiwi | Feb 27, 2006 09:50 AM

Here's a question that comes up frequently when my husband (measure everything precisely) and I (throw in a pinch of whatever sounds good) cook together:

When you're making a recipe from a cookbook (or other source), do you use separate dry measure cups for dry ingredients and liquid measure cups for wet ingredients, or do you figure most recipes expect folks to use the dry measure cups for both?

I know there is a difference. I just wonder if it makes a difference. Plus, how would you know if the recipe intends one or the other?

Thanks so much!
