{what I love today: very nifty}

I've had these Matryoshka measuring cups for a while now; since just a couple weeks after we moved to Germany and I got tired of converting my US recipes to grams and liters (and messing up on some of the conversions and then having to double all the ingredients, only to end up with a ridiculous amount of waffle batter.. which was a good excuse to have waffle for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Who doesn't dream of that?? haha).

So, before Christmas came around (and I knew I would want to bake some of my american-measured recipes) I went on a little online shopping spree, looking for cup-sized measuring cups.
Well, I found these awesome matryoshka dolls. The dolls come apart and each little cup represents a different size; 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 and 1 cup.
Aren't they the cutest?!

I use them at least twice a month (more if I feel like baking) for our Sunday waffle madness. We usually eat them as a late breakfast and they keep us filled up till dinner. Nom nom!

The waffles (+recipe) will get their own blogpost one of these Sundays. :)
