The “1/3” and “2/3” symbols have been replaced so that they read correctly in the Kindle apps. (If you have the previous copy, the symbols can be correctly read in all e-ink Kindles and the Kindle Cloud Reader. If you see a square where there should be an amount to measure, in all cases except the Savory Caraway Scones, the square should be a “1/3” symbol. The Savory Caraway Scones call for 2/3 cup of milk or half & half.)

Favorites from Amelia’s Kitchen

I’ve discovered that the 1/3 symbol is not appearing correctly in at least some Kindle apps (those for i-devices and the Kindle app). I am editing the book to replace the symbol with plain numbers & a slash. The changes will likely go live sometime on Monday or Tuesday. I will post here and make a tweet when they do.

If you are using the cookbook on an iPad, computer, or other non-eInk Kindle device, if you see a plain square where there should be a unit of measure, each of those should be “1/3”, with the exception of the recipe for Basic Sweet Scones, in which the measure should be “2/3 cup milk or half & half.”

The little cookbook I have put on Amazon is called Favorites from Amelia’s Kitchen. Perhaps not terribly imaginative, but accurate. 🙂 There are over 35 recipes, mostly vegetarian, some with meat alternatives, and some that are vegan or vegan-adaptable.
