Add arbitrary volumes to recipe ingredients.
I want to add all of the components of a recipe as it's written in the recipe, but only accepts volumetric measurements based on the serving size printed on the ingredient bag, which doesn't make any sense. If a recipe says "3/4 cup of cornmeal", then I want to add 3/4 cup of whatever brand cornmeal I bought, not 3/4 of "0.33 cup". That's just not how people interact with recipes. (At least not in the US. I realize this is backwards and old timey and metric is superior, but it's how I was brought up and how I have my recipes written down.)
The alternative would be for me to measure out each ingredient and weigh it and then input by ounces or grams, but that creates a burden on me when I'm importing recipes and I'd rather just not use the app.
You could try to use a generic version of the brand name food you are looking for. Foods from the source marked NCCDB will give you lots of serving size options (like 1 cup, tbsp, tsp) instead of having only the volumetric serving size listed on the package of the brand name version.
I hope that will save you some time!
