recipe reviews

Hi, the recipes look great, but it would be wonderful if you could add a section where people who have made the recipe could rate it and add any tips or warnings. I find that very helpful when I'm deciding what to try. Thanks very much.

  1. I was going to make the same suggestion. Suggestions and warnings from other cooks are one of the best features of the recipes on epicurious.com.

    The two button options for recipe feedback, "yes, I loved it" and "didn't quite work out" aren't especially helpful, in my opinion. It's like only allowing reviewers to use 2 or 5 stars on a 5-star scale. There are a lot of recipes I'd make again that I liked but didn't love or that that didn't work out perfectly the first time but would be fine with tweaking.

    1. When you "vote" on the recipe, a comment box opens to give feedback. This could be made more apparent though.

      1. It would also be good to show how many people have rated a recipe. If a recipe says 100% of reviewers say "hate it" it would be nice to know whether that was 100% of one or 17.
