When it's stated in a recipe "1-1/4 teaspoons", does that mean us one quarter teaspoon or one and a quarter teaspoons?

It would mean to use one and one quarter teaspoons.

One teaspoon and then quarter of a tsp. Otherwise it would look like this... 1/4 tsp.

Agree... I think it's the dash between the 1 and 1/4 that makes it look kinda odd and raise a question. I don't recall seeing 1 1/4 of anything written that way.
