Just Give Me A Smidge......How Much Is That?

Isn’t it funny how grandmothers around the world seem to rely on pinches?

How much nutmeg do you add to your egg noodles, Grandma?  A pinch.

How much pepper should I season the salad dressing with?  A smidge. 

Should I add sour cream to the potato salad?  Add a dollop or two.

How much brown sugar should I add to the oatmeal? Just a handful.

So exactly how much is a pinch, a smidge and a dollop? A  pinch is about 1/4 teaspoon and so is a smidge.  A dollop is about a heaping Tablespoon.  A handful is most likely around 1/3-1/2 cup.
