Note for recipes where ingredients are measured by parts: Most recipes will have exact measurements but some will list ingredients by "parts" (Of course. We're actors. Everything comes down to the part.) It simply means, pick your favorite means of measurement and use that as your part. Partial to cups? 1 part = 1 cup, etc.
