  4. Are these Tablespoons or teaspoons?
    I was taught that capital T meant TABLESPOON and little “t” meant teaspoon.
    I got confused because I’ve never seen
    1/8th TABLESPOON (head scratching). Please advise. Thanks!

      In All Recipes:

      capital T. (by itself) = Tablespoon
      lowercase t (by itself)= teaspoon

      TBS, tbs,Tbs = Tablespoon
      TSP, tsp, Tsp = teaspoon
