Hi Sarah. Mascarpone is a type of italian soft cheese, it's quite sweet and used a lot in desserts.
A courgette is a zucchini. A dessert spoon is larger than a tea soon but smaller than a soup spoon (so confusing).

Never fear, I've KINDA got a handle on the American measurements - I found a way to convert!

Thanks, Maria! I've never seen a Lidl store in the USA, but I enjoyed looking over the blog you linked. It was full of interesting ideas, and also amusing to see how many things she mentioned that I've never heard of. (What's marscapone? Is courgette the same thing as what we call zucchini? Is a dessert spoon the same size as what we call a teaspoon?) Makes me realize how frustrating our American recipes must be for non-Americans.

Hi Team!

There's a supermarket chain here in Ireland, like Aldi, called Lidl. I'm not sure if you have Lidl stores in the USA, but they're popular here. They're practically IDENTICAL to Aldi - same store layout, very similar foods...

A woman in Tipperary (it's a long way to...) has started a blog about living on 50 per week. There are some interesting nuggets to be found and some ideas on what to look out for in Lidl (or Aldi).

Hope it helps!
