INSTRUCTIONS IN COOKBOOKS THAT DRIVE ME INSANE

Was there an editor?! How did they let that slip through. Open to your suggestions!
  1. Cook until done.
    What the hell does that mean?! No, tell me how long!!
  2. Cook until flesh is firm to the touch.
    Am I really supposed to give myself 3rd degree burns poking this piece of fish??
  3. Bake until springy to the touch.
    Again: burning myself.
  4. Juice of half a lemon (or lime, orange, etc...)
    I have a lemon in my fruit basket right now the size of a softball. You don't really want me to put half of that in my recipe do you? Measure that out please and be specific!
  5. Add 1 1/3 cups flour.
    1/3? 😡
