Well 1.45 cups is an odd measure. Our standard measures are 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup. If it can't be formed by some combination of those it's likely a recipe that's been converted from other forms of measure or been halved (or doubled).

Cups are really easy to work with (granted I have been using them all my life!) And they force all us North American kids to learn their fractions, lol. But they are sort of arbitrary measurements compared to just weighing out whatever amount you need! Still, I like them because I don't have to break out my kitchen scales (since they're a lot less commonly used in North American kitchens they tend to end up in a back cupboard somewhere, and that's if you even have one. I wouldn't if I wasn't diabetic!) and work out what everything weighs, you just get out the cup measure, fill it up and that's that!

Edit: ok I just looked at that recipe again more closely and the quantities are REALLY odd! Normally you would say either (for example) 1 1/3 cups or 1.33 cups. Depends on if you're able to type in fractions in the quantity section when you enter your recipe. But you wouldn't say "1.45 cups 1/3 cup", that makes absolutely no sense. The amounts don't even match up. It looks like there might have been some errors when the recipe was typed up or published to the website.

I would opt for the measurements listed in fractions and forget about the decimals, the fractions are standard measurements and more likely to be the right ones.
