I also use Org-mode to hold recipes.  Currently I just hold the
ingredients in a standard list with informally specified amounts, but I
would be interested to see other approaches and any functions for
automatic recipe manipulation.

Incidentally I also do some baking, and while I don't currently measure
my ingredients by weight I would be interested to see (or help
brainstorm) a mechanism for reifying percentages into actual weights.
