Printable Kitchen Cheat Sheet – Infographic

We all need a little bit of help sometimes when it comes to recipe conversions or wondering how long certain food can be kept in the fridge. Here is a handy “kitchen cheat sheet” that you can print out and tape to the inside of a kitchen cupboard for quick and easy reference.

Of course the whole infographic can not be printed out all at once. The designer of this infographic  offers  separate pdf’s to download and print. The link to the site is at the bottom of this post.

Please note that even though this is a very accurate  infographic, metric conversions can still differ depending where you live.

Oh yeah, don’t forget all the fun you are supposed to have when you plan your child’s birthday party. It is fun, isn’t it?
