Harold McGee has a useful conversion table in Keys to Good Cooking. He covers the basics like sugars, flours, rice, salt, butter, cream and such. Or buy a scale and developed your own recipes; that is what I did. Or use original sources from almost any European country or probably South America. That is called putting your liberal arts education in French or Italian or Spanish to good use.

has a great cup to gram conversion table of pretty much everything you can think of. They update it often and very reliable. I have it printed and placed in my recipe's folder.
The exact link to it is:

Most conversion sites are fairly accurate. What are you wanting to convert cups into?
