So many recipes on Nigella's website are measured in 'cup' quantities. Can you please give me some idea of the volume and/or weight measurements for a 'cup' please? Many thanks in advance!

I used some caramelized onion in a beef stew, taking my cue from Nigella Express. Trouble is, it's turned out far to sweet. What can I do to reduce the sweetness?

I have just baked the sponges for Nigella's Chocolate Fudge Cake and they have really puffed up (they haven't flattened with cooling either)! What is the best way to ice the cake when this happens and how do I prevent it from happening again? Cheers, Lorna.

Having made Nigella's Tuscan Fries, I will definately be making them again! I just wanted to know if it is ok to keep the oil minus the garlic and herbs for a while, and if it is for how long?

Nigella has listed sources for instant espresso powder for the UK and US. However I live in Sydney, Australia, and have not come across this in any shops locally. I can't really afford to buy much online as the delivery/postal charges tend to add to the cost quite a lot. Plus, even if I do buy on-line parcels frequently get lost. What do you suggest?
