Along with cooking as much as I can for my hubby and children I also enjoy sewing, playing pool, and reading. I have a fondness for animals, charitable works, and my family. I have to reign in my love of cookbooks because I would buy them all if I could - my current favorite is Recipezaar. (Go figure!) I've never seen anything like it and it's just wonderful! Notes on my ratings: In terms of cooking skill I rate myself a "good cook". In terms of taste, well....I like what I like so it's subjective. (If my picky DH gives something a thumbs up and/or my children also like it - that's a bonus but I rate on my own experience.) When I read a recipe I get a sense of what I THINK it should taste like. If I make the recipe, don't experience any trouble in the making of it, and it tastes like I'm expecting then it's 5 stars. If it tastes like I expect but I had some issue in the making of the recipe, which I will document, then it's 4 stars. 3 stars would mean it's middle of the road. Tasted okay, worked okay, but it didn't set my tongue on fire. 2 stars is going to be an overall disappointment, most likely in taste. 1 star - I hope never to give any recipe 1 star. With luck I would "know" that the mix of ingredients or what have you isn't going to work for me. I hope that's helpful for anyone I review. :)
