Someone who works at the local Irving was talking about this site. So I thought I'd have a look around, I ended up being here until 3 or 4 am. Yes I was hooked at first site and had to sign up the next day. I love being able to post my family recipes and know they're safe, and being able to retreive them no matter where I am.
I once had to call the local library in B.C. to ask the librarian to look up a recipe. I lost it on the move back to the maritimes. I can only imagine what the lady was thinking, having someone call her to look up a recipe all the way from Nova Scotia. I couldn't find it any where, this was my last resort. This was the first recipe I posted, I vowed I wasn't going to missplase it again. recipe#223803
I must mention that I live in a zoo. We have 1 dog, 2 cats, 1 snake and a whole lot of fish. In a small 3 bedroom bungalow. I also have 2 children, boy 12, girl 10 and a husband.
My children and I are registered organ donors. I feel if I would take an organ for my children I better be willing to give one. I'll take this time to mention, it's not enough to tell your family you wish to donate you must also register.
I've been married for almost 13 years now. (I can't believe it been that long) I've been blessed with a wonderfull partner, I couldn't dream of being with anyone else. We get each other and when we don't, we fill each other in.
I love to bake, especially cookies. I also love to knit and I sew a little. But I would sew more if I had a sewing room. My passion is knitting if I could make good money from it I'd do it for a living. I do knit for a yarn shop in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, I really love doing this because I get to knit with yarns I wouldn't be able to afford. Mind you this has made me quite the yarn snob. If you have any questions about knitting feel free to z-mail them to me I love keeping the art of knitting alive.
I love cookie cook books I'm a sucker for them especially ones with lots of pictures.
My rating system is below. I like to see how others rate recipies. I find it helpful when recieving one. I know I might give stars a little too freely, But I usually know what we like by the ingredient list. I am very picky when I choose to try a recipe. I hate to waste food, it's not cheap. I might also pick a recipe because of lots of positive reviews. To me alot of reviews mean it appeals to alot of different tastes. I do not take much stock in bad reviews because after all it is a matter of tastes.
I do like to review recipes I've tried. Mostly because I love recieving reviews and I feel others must like it too. Also it is a good way for me to find the recipes if tried. I just look up my own personal reviews to find the recipes my family likes. It's easier than sorting through my main cookbook, which is now up to 450 recipes.
It's easier to say what I hate. I hate rasins cooked in anything, I hate when they get all plump again, gross, they should have just stayed grapes. I do like rasins though but not mixed with anything just plain. I can't stand tarragon, I can pick it out in anything even one flake. I also dislike melons and cantelope, yuck. I've tried I love the smell but there is just something I'm very sensitive to that I don't like.
I bake chocolate chip cookies every year on the first day of school. Warm from the oven when the kids get home from school, this is the only time they can have as many as they like. Usually the 3 dozen are gone by bed time. I was going to post but found that it was already posted recipe#39689 I use 1 cup of mini chocolate chips and make each cookie a Tbsp. These are also good as icecream sandwiches.
My rating system:
5 stars - Loved it. Well recieved by most of the family members. I do not take stars off for one child not liking a recipe because my kids tastes can change from day to day. Will use exactly as is and make it again.
4 stars - Very good but either I found the recipe to hard to understand and not clear or I have to make a few changes to make it better for our family's tastes. Will use this recipe again but note my changes.
3 stars - recipe initially looked good, I followed the directions but it didn't turn out. I may or may not try again.Or I will not use this recipe again because I know of a better one.
2 and 1 stars - I won't bother giving these ratings. I feel who am I to be a personal judge of someone elses tastes. It's all a matter of prefferance. If I can't say nothing nice I don't say anthing at all.
I like to make the recipe exactly first, in order to review. If I need to make changes I'll wait to write a review after to see what's the difference. If I make changes and it fails but the recipe still taste good (wrong size pan etc.) I will not fault the recipe. I will try it again then sumit a review. If I do something different to the recipe I will mention it so others will know what I have done. I don not make recipies that I don't think will be well recieved by my family. If I try something out of the ordaniry, just to try something different, and it doesn't go well I will not give a bad review. I think people can tell weather or not they will like something by looking at the recipe. They don't need to see a bad review by me.( subjective as it might be)
