Great question Nook! This is a really dumb way of me trying to be precise with the fundamentally flawed US volume measuring system;) When I say 1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons soy milk I actually mean for you to measure out 1/4 cup of soy milk, then measure out another 2 teaspoons of soy milk. It's the same for the salt. I could say measure out 14 teaspoons of soy milk but I wouldn't want to force everyone to measure out a whole 14 teaspoons of soy milk individually- that would be horrible! Eventually, I'll have the option of metric weight measurements with all my recipes too (for my friends outside of the US), but it's going to involve an incredible amount of work getting everything converted to metric.

I would have loved to just round down or up but in my recipes, taste comes first, ease of measurements come second. Hope this clarifies things for you!
