    Need help with tabs for recipes

    RP911

      I'm sorry if this is elementary but my brain is not working after hours of messing with it. I want to set up a fairly simple tab for recipe ingredients -- not numbered steps, that I understand -- but ingredient amounts that vary by width ...might be 1, might be 1 3/4 might be 14 ... I want that column of numbers to be flush right, then a space, then the rest of the ingredient needs to be flush left with a hanging indent (see last line of example). So it looks like this (from Cooks Illustrated):

      Can anyone give me a clue how to set that up (and have it be usable)? Unformatted text would be:

       

      2 large eggs plus 1 large egg white

      1/2 cup (2 1/2 ounced) unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted.

       

      etc. etc. etc.

       

      This is making me crazy ... any help appreciated.
