Merhaba Binnur Hanim,

I recently discovered your site. Congratulations for such an outstanding job. I am a Turkish gal who also lives in Canada. I moved here when I was 18. My mom never taught me how to cook, so I took up cooking here in Canada. I love cooking and I do North American recipes since the measurements are more precise. Frankly I am confused by the measurements of recipes written in Turkish (tea cup, coffee cup, turkish teaspoon, "a little bit of this, a little bit of that" I am sure you know what I am talking about :) ). I was wondering if your measurements are in North American units. If not, do you have a conversion guide?

Merhaba Sevgili Bahar,
Thank you:) All the measurements and ingredients are already North America-adjusted:) For measurement; I use a glass or plastic cup with a handle which you can find at the markets. One cup is equal to 250 ml. I have a "Measurements" section on the right side of the website, you can check it there.

I never use su bardagi, cay bardagi a measurement in my recipes since it is not exact:)

Happy holidays!

Personally as a European gal, Turkish measurements helped me cook a lot, and I think that not exact measurements are paradoxically more precise because cooking is not mathematics and I do love turkish cookbooks especially for those measurements so not available in other cuisines,it makes Turkish cookbooks very characteristic and I appreciate it, selamlar
