  •   "| parseUrl | unsafe'>Here\'s the rest of the list:  

  • Does the recipe tell you what you can prepare ahead?

  • Does it tell you how to store the food and for how long?

  • Are the ingredients specific -- not "1 pound beef," but "1 pound well-marbled beef chuck"?

  • Do the instructions tell you

  • What kind of pot and utensils to use? 

  • The level of heat and/or the timing needed for each step?

  • What the food should look like, sound like, and/or smell like?

  • How to know if it\'s done?

  • How to serve?
