"This is a good recipe. I wish I could give it 10 stars to average it back out to the 5 stars that it should've been. People shouldn't give a recipe a 1 star rating if they haven't tried it just so they can ask a dumb question that they could have googled. Really people? A rating is for stuff that you've tried, not to be used as a blog."
