Water-to-Grain Cooking Ratios {A Cute Chart for You}

Since I pretty much prepare some type of grain on a daily basis, you would think I'd have all the cooking methods committed to memory by now. 

Instead, I am always second guessing myself on how much water to use, how long to boil it, etc.  I'll be making brown rice and think, "I need a one-to-two ratio. Or, wait, is that that quinoa?  Maybe it's one to one.  No, that's oatmeal." And so on and so on. 

And then there are times when I get the water amount correct, only to find out that I've accidentally made enough servings to feed an army rather than a family of two. 

To keep the details straight, I created a note on my phone listing all of the water-to-grain ratios along with (roughly) how long to cook each one and approximate serving sizes.  It has come in handy on so many occasions!  I find myself referring to it all the time, so I thought I would create a better-looking version to share with you all. 
I plan to get this list printed in color so I can post it on the little cork square I just added to the inside of my spice cabinet.  It's a perfect place for recipes and cooking notes just like this.  
Now I won't ever have to second guess myself again (at least when it comes to cooking grains, that is!).
