Spelling and Abbreviations in Recipes - Rant

7 years ago

I was reading a recipe for scones that made my teeth grate: use course sugar (coarse), place the {list of everything},,, (put dry ingredients), tbsps (T is easier to type), teasp (t is easier to type), and whirr in (pulse in FP, or whisk in, or mix in blender), seperate eggs (separate), cut butter into even chunks (cube or dice butter), leave them to cool (let cool), remove from pan using ... etc., etc. and place on a rack to cool right side up (dump onto cooling rack), preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius (preheat oven to 400F or 200C), juice and grated rind of 2 lemons (6T lemon juice and 2T fine zest), serated knife (serrated knife), flat metal baking pan (cookie sheet).

Is is just me?
