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.
1= NO WAY
2= not really
4= pretty good
5= OH YEAH!
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?
