I'm a Christian and am very happily married. I love to cook and aspire to do it well. I've only been cooking for a few years now, but there are already quite a few people whom I have surpassed. Interestingly enough, I tell people it's not necessarily that I'm a good cook per se, just that I know how to pick the right recipes. This is why I stick around here. :) I am a recent college graduate, a finance major. I'm not quite sure exactly where this path will take me, but hopefully, if I'm good enough at it (and if the economy permits), maybe to an early retirement. :D My Rating System 5 stars: WOW! You don't have to have a recipe for the best thing I've ever tasted to get a 5 as long as there is something about it that honestly impresses me. 4 stars: I give four stars to recipes that are really good but have one thing or two that I would change. 3 stars: I give 3 stars to recipes that I feel are "average" or about the same quality as the everyday stuff my mom or I would make before I started looking for the best recipes on Zaar. 2 stars: I will probably never give a 2 star rating. If I feel your recipe was a 2-star, it is below average but not bad enough for me to tell you so. Thus, I might just never rate it. 1 star: Means the recipe had something significantly wrong with it that I believe others should be warned of. NOTE: Sometimes I will give extra stars on top of how I think the food tasted if I believe the lack of quality was due in part to a blunder of mine.
