Yeah, I don't blame you - I don't trust them either. I always use the Sparkpeople recipe calculator to figure things out:
Thereafter you can add the recipes to your favorite foods in your tracker. It's also handy for breaking down your own recipes so you know (or can tweak) what's in them.
You probably already figured this out, but in order to determine/define what a serving size should be, either use your food scale or else a measuring cup to portion your finished product out. For example, when I make a homemade soup, I use a 1-cup measuring cup to scoop the entire thing into a different container. If I end up counting 14 scoops, then I've got 14 servings, and so on. Simple, but took me a little while to figure out!
