When making muffins or whatever you are baking the recipe calls for 2 teaspoons. Is that rounded, heaping teaspoons or leveled off? Thanks.

It would be a "real" measuring spoon, not the teaspoon from your flatware set, leveled off. Enjoy!

Ditto what nomoresnow said. And that's not just for baking, but everything, unless stated otherwise.

The recipe means leveled off but really I find most recipes to be quite forgiving. If you like a particular spice make it heaping - I don't think it has to be exact.

Baking is more exact than most other things in the kitchen concerning yeast, baking soda and other levening things.
If you're a first timer and don't know your way around the kitchen ingredients too well follow the recipe. After you're familiar with the recipe and spices and such, then, by all means, change it up or down to your liking.

Yes. This stems from my prior post about the flat muffins. I have done some research and see where I went wrong. Recipe said fill 1/3 way full, and I did, but my baking cups were way too big! Trying again this weekend. Though the muffins were quite physically "ugly", for lack of a better word, my son came home from school saying that all of the kids wanted more of the muffins - you know how kids sometimes sample each others lunches!
