Serving Size & Portion Control

This Sparked Me!

Good Morning All. I know we all Love to try new recipes and posting them to When entering a new recipe, put the serving SIZE (eg. 1 cup or 4 oz etc..). It's quite difficult to make a recipe and then divide it by the number of servings to find out the serving size.
We all try to watch our serving sizes and acturally measure them out all the time.
It would be so helpful to include the serving sizes in your recipes for all of us.
Thank You.You are all the BEST....OXOX

    I agree! If it just says how many servings it makes, how do you know how much to measure!

    Definitely agree.
That often puts me off even trying some recipes.
When adding liquid Always say how much that goes for milk and water too.
