It might seem like a given, but there are indeed "correct" ways to measure wet and dry ingredients, and some people are simply doing it wrong.

I came across this video yesterday from a blog called Natasha's Kitchen. It's worth a look:

For liquids, perhaps. But not dry ingredients.
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket

Here is some more good, practical information on measuring:

Quote A simple ordinary coffee cup (not a mug!) containing around 25 cl (about 8.5 oz) is effective for portioning, in order to prevent making too much of everything.

One nearly-full coffee cup of (dry product) rice, couscous, bulghur, polenta is approximately what a normal person can eat; also, use the same cup for measuring the cooking liquid. It never fails:

One cup rice for 1.5 cups of water (absorption method)
One cup of couscous for 1 cup of liquid
One cup of bulghur for 1.2 cups of liquid
One cup of polenta for 3 cups of liquid, for firm polenta (like making polenta fries)
One cup of polenta for 5 or 6 cups of liquid for much looser polenta (sort of puree style, if served immediately)
