I have recently downloaded an American recipe which refers to quantities as c (presumably cups), t's and T's. Are the t's meaning teaspoons and the T's meaning tablespoons or is it something else? Thanks
A further issue might be that here in the UK a tablespoon is pretty big, and used for serving. A dessertspoon is the one used for shoving cereal or ice-cream into ones gob, and I may be wrong, but I get the impression that our US amigos call this a tablespoon.
I just grab a spoon from the drawer. Mind you, my tablespoons vary quite a lot in capacity, so I tend to select according to whether I feel the need for more or less of an ingredient. Non liquids always seem to end up a bit more heaped than they should be!
