[bksvol-discuss] Re: cookbooks

If anyone needs help with a page in a cookbook, i.e., with 
quantities/measurements, if I can get the book I'll provide the correct ones. 
I'm proofing a long, complicated book, but providing measurements won't take 
much time away from the project. I'd just need to know the recipe title and 
maybe the page number) and could send you the correct ingredients list.
