I'm often inspired by your recipes, but I have to look elsewhere for something similar simply because your ingredient measurements don't really translate - for example here, there are some ingredients listed more than once in different measurements and some items only say "number" - huh? I can understand that when referring to a chili, but when the ingredient is a powder, I'm lost. If this could be addressed, I would live at your site!
