Anonymous, it’s a little confusing. You can rate a recipe without reviewing. That is why it says 11 ratings and 2 reviews (yours and now mine). Personally, I think you shouldn’t be allowed to rate without providing a review, but then I’m not the boss. :)

Where are the other 9 reviews? Can't find them ... am I blind or what? I gave a review of "OK", although I haven't tried the recipe yet ... I want to read the missing 9 reviews first ... plus I'll have to start saving my pennies for that lobster tail!
