Now that I am wading into zucchini season (oh, be still my heart!), I am constantly on the lookout for new recipes to keep the excitement going. I ran across a humdinger recently and, after preparing it, decided that there should be a new standard of recipe-rating.
It should go thusly (based on totally random numbers)
Portions: 4 (#+ = three times that much if you are eat like a normal human) (#- = less than 4 if you are not eating anything else)
Preparation: 30 minutes (XX = will take twice as long as you think) (XXX! = don't bother, unless you have a few days free)
Difficulty: Easy/Intermediate/Culinary Institute Degree/Flaming Genius
Number of glasses of an adult beverage needed to make it through the recipe - 1= pleasant experience; 2 = slightly frustrating; 3 = you should have your head examined for even contemplating this recipe; 4 = you're drinking dinner tonight

I did stick with it and am glad that I did, as it was delish. However, the next time - giving myself enough time to forget how finicky it is - I will hire house elves and have them use the ribbon-maker part of my zoodler.
