Does anyone know if there is a recipe calculator that calculates the portion size?

I've used the recipe calculator at the daily plate and spark people but both only allow you to specify servings.

So, for example if I create a recipe for pizza, I know that I can divide it in 8 equal servings so I can specify that the recipe has 8 servings and then calculate what 1 serving is.

However, if I make a big pot of chili, it's nearly impossible to determine how many servings are in a big pot or what "one serving" is.

So, I'm looking for a recipe calculator that will let me put in a weight or measurement instead of just 1 serving.

Anyone know if such a calculator exists?
