i've found that when i look at recipe ratings on most sites the rating is based on changes made by the poster. not here, but on food network ect. whenever i make something based on a recipe i find or am given from a friend, out of respect i make it stictly as instructed. base an opinion and rate it as such. the next time i make it is when i have fun with it and change things to my taste. anyone on the same page?
