Unfortunately, I've not been able to keep up with a personal message for those who take the time to make and review one of my recipes. Life tends to get in the way but please know I appreciate each and every review! :) Thank you! I am a HUGE Rick Springfield fan who also loves to cook! When I'm not at a Rick concert, I spend my days as a teacher. I've been teaching for 14 years and I truly believe it is what God put me on this earth to do! I was a "lurker" on Zaar before I became a member. I'm proud to say I am now a Zaar Addict! I love the tag games, the great recipes and the wonderful people who make this the best site on the net! I've refined my rating system over the past year but have yet to make a recipe I would give only 1 or 2 stars. Everything I've made has been great! My ratings: 3 stars: We liked the recipe and would make again, maybe with some changes. 4 stars: We loved the recipe and it will go into our meal rotation. 5 stars: It passed the "family test" and is a recipe I am asked to make again and again.
