Collected from posts on GEnie Food & Wine RT by JACQUI, COOKIE-LADY, G.KNAAK [Gerd], and posts on Fido Cooking echo by PIM PHILIPSE, BOB EMERT, Dale & Gail Shipp, ERIC DECKER, and ANNE MACLELLAN. You will probably notice that some items have more than one equivalent amount given; if sources disagreed, and I haven't tested myself, I've included both.
