Ok, cheating is sometimes allowed.
As much as we would like members to enter recipes correctly and properly (please do not put in 1 bag of lettuce- a bag is 12 oz). There are cases where it's allowed.

To add a subtitle to your recipe, like Dressing or Glaze, you can put a hyphen in the quantity box. Press the recipe numbers to see an example: Recipe #362 or Recipe #364

I think that 1 pack of lettuce is simpler to understand then 12oz. I have never heard anyone say "I this great salad and I made it 16.4 oz of lettuce."

True, but in every country a bag is a different amount. Take cabbage as an example. There are 8 oz bag of shredded cabbage and 12 oz and 16 oz. The best way to write it would then be 1 (12oz) bag of .... Then the other members know its 1 bag but they still have the oz as a reference.

glad to hear this - many american cookbooks just state a box of confectioner's sugar or tub of cream cheese etc etc and sizes can be very different in diff countries, so yes here's to exact measurements!
