Hello Dr. Vicars,

Is there a sign for "recipe"? I cannot find the sign and many Youtube videos show people fingerspelling it.

Thank you for your time,

Elyn,
Hello :)
In general the concept of "recipe" is indeed fingerspelled.  I encourage you to practice spelling "recipe" over and over again until you can spell it fast enough that you are no longer concerned about finding a "sign" for it and are instead perfectly comfortable spelling it just as you see Deaf people do.

I will however mention a couple of signs related to the concept of "recipe" that you may find helpful.

CARD-(square or rectangle)

Draw a rectangle in the air with your index fingers and thumbs.
 



INSTRUCTIONS / describe / explain
