Review Standards

On Thursdays is food & recipe day. I will be posting a review of a edible product or recipe of my liking; for now. I plan on review an edible product once a week when my schedule lets me. The review is not influenced by anyone, including my family!

~~~~~~~ Here are what my rating parameters ~~~~~~~

Cost
: There are 4 ratings for Cost. Very High, High, Affordable and Very Affordable. For each I have set limits on how much the actual product costs. If I am making a recipe that I am featuring, I will include two costs. One for the main product and another for the total spent (not including staples like salt n pepper).
Very High: $25.01 and over
High: $8.01 - $25
Affordable: $3.01 - $8
Very Affordable: $0.01 - $3

Preparation: Is what and how long it took to prepare before the actual cooking process began. I will sometimes include a time if it took longer than 5 minutes or so. I will list what was prepared and how (choped, diced, boiled). I will also include a rating of Easy, Medium or Hard if I had to do more than just boil water and dump in the food or open a can.

Cooking
Time
: The Cooking time will include only what the package recommends. If I cooked or seasoned more than what was recommended, I will note that and why.

Texture
: The texture portion of the review will not have a rating because everyone has different preferences. Although I will tell you what the texture is. For example; for pasta I will tell you what the texture is at the time when it should be done (recommended cooking time), and tell you what the texture was at that time. If I review a frozen dinner and the time recomends cooking for 3 minutes and I take it out and the middle is still frozen, I will put hard or cold and then note that I cooked an additional 2 minutes or so.

Taste
: Taste also does not have a rating. I do however tell you what the taste is like. Salty, sweet, scrumptious, etc.

Smell
: I will include the smell rating when appropriate. Ratings will be Bad, Good or Excellent and I will include a comment on why I rated it that way. It may smell bad, but I may still give it a rave review because it tasted fine. Smell is just the first reaction I get when I smell the end result.

Absorption
: For a product like pasta, I will rate it's Absorption or hold of the food (like cheese to the macaroni) and rate it Poor Good re Excellent.

Overall
: I will use a "Star" rating for the overall result of the food. Tiny, Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large. Overall rating may or may not include Smell & Taste as a factor because everyone had different smells and tastes that they are accustom to.


NOTE: If there is something that you'd like me to consider or suggest a product for me to review, use the Contact link at the top of the page or leave a comment here. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
