I live in Ontario (Canada) and love to cook. I am doing my PhD right now and always am looking for a break from my studies. I like to read recipe books and experiment with new recipes. I love to cook anything ethnic and try to incorporate vegetarian meals into my diet at least twice a week. My ratings: 5 stars: I don't give out five stars easily - the dish has to be spectacular and something I would make again and again. 4 stars: A good dish that I might adapt a little but something that I would put into my recipe collection. 3 stars: I seem to give out a lot of these! These are dishes that are good but they are missing something or they don't live up to my expectations. I would not make them again simply because they aren't a favourite not necessarily because they were not good :) 2 stars: A dish that for some reason didn't work out or I just did not like it :) 1 star: I don't think I'll give any of these out!
