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 with a finance degree. I currently work as an Excel VBA programmer. When I graduated from college, I had no idea this is where my career path would lead; but I think it's kind of fitting and a bit funny since I originally planned to major in computer science. Now, I get to use them both!
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.
meat, cheese, veggies, potatoes, fruit, and of course chocolate... basically, I love a little bit of all of it. (However, I have been known to be a picky eater.)
Chicken parmigiana is one of my favorites, but I also love a good traditional home cooked meal with my four favorite food groups (meat, potatoes, veggies, and bread) and cannot go for more than a day or two without one!
