Recipe formats and their use.
A recipe, no matter its format, gives ingredients and instructions for a specific food so that the food item tastes the same every time.
A good recipe lists the following:
When choosing a recipe you must consider your cooking skills, time, budget, and likes/dislikes. You save money by choosing recipes with common ingredients. For example, if a recipe calls for 2 Tbsp. chutney, you will have to buy a whole jar and may never use it again. Also, you may make substitutions if you don't have a particular ingredient. Good cookbooks have a substitution list.
If you want more or less servings than listed on the recipe you can increase/decrease the recipe. For example: if you want three servings and a recipe makes six servings divide the recipe in half. Or if you wanted twelve servings, you'd multiply by 2. It doesn't work as well to roast small amounts of meat - it dries out. You must know equivalents to decrease and increase a recipe. Example: half of 1/4 cup is 1/8 cup. Some measuring cup sets do not come in 1/8 cup size so you must use 2 Tbsp.
