Check the website to see me and my friends on our last trip to the gulf in Australia, catching big fish and eating them!!! I live in sunny Queensland. I am pretty much retired, spending my time cooking and crafting and looking after Hubby. Everyone seems to have a different method when it comes to giving a rating. I tend to think that everyone has different tastes, and should be able to pick what they like. (e.g. I wouldn't choose to make Moose steaks, cause I cant get them fressh :) If I pick wrongly, I wont rate the recipe. If the recipe comes together well, but I added a spice I like, OR tastes SOOOO good, it gets 5 stars. If the recipe didnt cook up well, and I had to tweak a lot, then 4 stars. I will also give 4 stars for a "comfort food" recipe, but that doesnt mean it wasnt good, just not a recipe that is super special. If it really doesnt want to cook up, and tastes yuk, or very boring, and I cant fix it, then 3 stars, I rarely go lower. I am now a seasoned traveller :) I went to the USA late 2005 to spend time with my eldest daughter Kate and her new baby Gemma. 2007, I visited again to be there when Fletcher was born. Their photo is the bottom one. Kate is pregnant wih her third, due at the end of April 2009. Kate is a member here, Chef #60293, but she usually depends on me to find things she will like, hence the cookbook with her picky on it. I have just spent time with my 2nd daughter, Samantha, and my 2 beautiful grand daughters, Grace and Jennifer. Reuben Mark was born July 2008, but he hasnt got a picture on "my page" yet. Its a 4 hour drive to Biloela, but we go up whenever we can. Samantha is a member too, Chef #141770, but like Kate, leaves me to pick her recipes.
