So that way The person that is following the recipe, will at least know how much to put in his or her cooking. Especially with with those of you would say a dash of salt or a pinch of this or a pinch of that. How much is a pinch or how much is a dash of something. Or when you say add handfuls of something there again how much is a handful of that ingredient. g

>> and so on.  Recipes also are not even modified to be more specific. 
>> Ingredients lists such as “half of a jar of spaghetti sauce” or “one bagt of noodles”, which are of no use are given.  What size is that bag or jar to begin with?  If I want unmodified recipes, they are available by the millions on the Internet.  The trend is now, on this list, to a greater and greater extent, to post recipes copied from the Internet that people have not tried, with no modification for blind people.  To me, this tendency makes “Cooking in the Dark” less and less special.  It is becoming just another cooking list.  What attracts me to the “cooking in the Dark” podcast that Dale has done for a long time is that the focus remains on how BLIND people accomplish the tasks involved in successful meal preparation.  I am considering leaving a list that is becoming less and less meaningful to blind people.
