aha! I have a new method for writing up recepies:

You list the ingredients in a big long (or short) list down the left hand of the page.

Then you combine ingredients with a } sign, with instructions for how you combine them after the }.

For example:

2 eggs           }     mix in a bowl
1/4 cup of milk  }

You write out the sequence of instructions left to right (possibly with a timeline across the top of the page to indicate specific times).

For example:

2 eggs            }
1/4 cup of milk   }    mix roughly                               }
salt              }    in a bowl                                 }   fry
pepper            }                                              }
knob of butter                      }  melt in a flying pan      }

Or something.

I think it probably works better on paper (where I first tried it), or maybe pdf.
