My dad is an engineer, and therefore his "recipe" for ice cream is actually a "formula" and is written as such. It's his own take on how recipes SHOULD be written haha! And those of you who know engineers know they are always thinking of ways to improve things even if they work just fine (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). ;)
