Yes. When making shopping lists within recipes or the shopping list, if you enclose the measurement part of the item in parentheses it will work like a note in the shopping list. So for example instead of putting "2 Tbs. Butter", put "Butter (2 Tbs.)" and then it will always automatically recognize butter and categorize it for you in the right area of the store. The () act as a way to put any notes you like in.
