Also see Explaining how to make something (food) in American Sign Language
Like describing an object in ASL, giving an instruction on how to prepare or cook something involves a fairly heavy amount of classifiers.
Remember these pointers below when translating a recipe:
State a noun first before using its classifier.
Merge the ingredients and steps together. E.g. Mix 2 cups of flour and 1 tsp of baking together together. Add one tsp of vanilla extract to the bowl, etc.
