I followed Canadian spelling per the author questionnaire; per Internet research on Canadian style, I used regular US style for quotes and punctuation within quotes.
... Here is a brief summary of the styles followed:
Italics: all foreign words/phrases/quotes set in italics, except those common in English, such as “al dente,” and those in the all-capital titles of recipes
Numerals: numerals for time and measurements in recipes (which includes Ingredients section, Instructions section, and Notes section); regular Chicago style in narrative text
Abbreviations: abbreviations for units of measure in Ingredients lists; spelled-out full version in Instructions and Notes (except for when in parentheses, in which case abbreviations are used)
Use period: c., min., tbsp., tsp., oz., lb.
