I stopped voting in contests for two reasons:
1. I used to make both recipes each week, casting a vote for the one that got the majority vote of my family. The weeks that I had ran out of ingredients or time, I didn't vote, and then I stopped voting at all because
2. the Activity Log shows who I voted for. Even if it's only seen for a split second, I don't want anyone's feelings to be hurt if they see I voted for someone else's recipe instead of theirs.
Do you make each recipe before voting? If not, how do you arrive at your choice?
