Is this person being picky? How difficult is it to convert 1 c. to 8 ozs.? Come on. Do a little thinking for yourself.

Instead of giving ingredient measurements as one or 2 or 3 cups full why dont you give the amount in ounces as you would other ingredients. This way I can know how much of that product I have to purchase. Thank you
