How do we rate our recipes?

We've been married almost 12 years now and there's been times in the past when I've gotten a little 'hurt' when My Soldier wasn't as impressed with my cooking as I hoped he'd be.  Well, I've found a way for us to be totally honest and open about my cookin' and other things :)

   When I try new recipes, My soldier and I each rate it 1-5 and then I write it (the average) near my recipe title so I know what we think of it.

2= not really
3= ok 
4= pretty good

Sometimes only I like a recipe so it's just my name by the title with a number. I make it when My Soldier isn't home for dinner or when I cook fish for him, cause I'm not a fan of fishy tasting things.
      If it's less than a 3... it's not added to my cookbook because ...there's so many better things to eat than something as low as a 3 :) he he he!  (Yep, that was quirky)

This also works in other things too... "1-5 how much do ya wanna go visit so and so?"  or "1-5 for watching this movie or 1-5 for watching that movie?"   Then we each know how the other is feeling without assuming or getting our feelings hurt!!!

  Here's a few recipes I found this weekend when I wanted pulled pork sandwiches after church.

We've tried and rated the first one and we'll rate the other one when I cook it for Sunday dinner another time!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork   4.25   (Soldier-4.5   Sheree-4)

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Rootbeer  (will rate it soon)

  How do you determine which recipes you keep and which ones you ditch and eat frozen pizza instead?
