# ﻿Conversion

It seems to happen that just after I have greased a tin or started kneading, that will be the moment I need to reach for my phone to convert the weights in a recipe. The majority of the time though, the home button—actually my phone in general—tends to be covered with flour. It is no surprise that on my wish list is Google Home. But since that is probably not going to happen, the next best thing I figured would be to combine in one place most of ingredients I am constantly converting from volume to weight or vice versa. Just for the record, volume is way easier but weight is more accurate.  I prefer measuring by weight when it comes to breads and pastry but volume for cakes and cookies.
