I've been a professional chef for 10+ years and have lost more weight than I've gained. We don't have time to eat, often we have breakfast at 8am and then work through to 11pm with the odd stolen chip to keep us going. In the early years my dinner/tea/evening meal mainly consisted of fermented hops (beer) and tobacco. The last thing you want to do, after a ...


It's just a guideline. A dip like that is to taste, but a cup of cilantro is a great place to start. You decide how much the cup should hold :)


Depends on how finely sliced it should be for the dish 😁. When sliced (or not), sprinkle in a cup, without compressing, when full, done!


According to the blog Fox in the Kitchen, 1 cup of glutinous rice flour weighs 204 grams, or .45 lbs. So 1 pound would be 2.22 cups. FYI, 204 grams/cup meshes exactly with what Bob's Red Mill says on its nutrition label for glutinous rice flour. So perfectly, as a matter of fact, that I wonder if that's where the blog listed above got it.


Around 2.5 - 3 cups (2.8 exactly) but I doubt exactness is necessary for your recipe if your willing to guess by volume. May I suggest investing in some scales they will only set you back £14 for some bog' standard ones which will work just fine for home use.


This question is actually answered in a comment to the recipe you linked: kimberly says: Sorry for silly question, but the ingredient list says ” ½ sleeve celery $0.65 “. do you mean 1/2 of a stalk or 1/2 of a bunch of celery? [...] Beth M says: Yes, I meant a half bunch. Sorry about the confusion! :) I used about 4 stalks or so. ...


My best guess is that the recipe is referring to the bag ("sleeve") that a whole celery heart comes in. Half a celery heart (about 6-8 stalks?) seems to be on par with the volume of 4 medium carrots. Here's a Save-A-Lot grocery store listing for "sleeve celery", and the picture is of a celery heart.


Oh man. That's a lot of cilantro. Some people are more sensitive than others, but make sure you like it a lot before putting that much in a dish. In a perfect world we would all have ready access to scales and all recipes would list ingredients like these by weight instead of volume. That said, reality tends to lean more in favor of the volume-based ...


It means vanilla extract. Whether it's correct or not is hard to say. It does sound like a lot for something with those quantities, so it's possible they meant to say a teaspoon, which is a pretty common amount, resulting in a subtle but noticeable flavor in a batch of chocolate chip cookies, for example. Or it's possible they just wanted whatever it is ...
