Can you convert dry ingredients measurements to the cooked measurement?

    This seems to be a stumbling block for me. I cook for a family of five and some recipes it isn't possible to just do a single serving.

    I think you are talking about rice, oatmeal, or potatoes? When I need to do this, I measure out and count the dry servings before cooking, then divide the whole cooked amount by the same number of servings and get mine that way.

    example?

    Rice is not a dry measure but oats are. Potatoes are a pre-cook measure though.

    Potatoes and pasta are the main 2.
