Grilled Bread with Thyme Pesto and Preserved Lemon Cream

Last year, as many of you will recall, we were really good about digging up great recipes that might have otherwise gone overlooked, and naming a new Wildcard winner (almost) every week. (Remember Lazy Mary's Lemon Tart, Daddy's Carbonara and the Grilled Bread with Thyme Pesto and Preserved Lemon Cream pictured above? All Wildcards.)

We're ramping up our Wildcard testing again and we want to know if there are any amazing recipes you've discovered on food52, ones that haven't necessarily been submitted to any particular contest. Please shout them out in the comments section below and, going forward, you can always email us suggestions at [email protected] as well.

Thanks for your help!

I echo SallyCan's recommendation for the Chocolate Swirl Cinnamon Marshmallows. I have not made them, but I certainly enjoyed the ones that SallyCan made and sent to me last Christmas. In fact (and this is a confession), I hoarded them for myself. Everything else she sent was delicious, as usual, so the other members of my family didn't hold it against me . . . much. ;o)

I just made Midge's Brown Butter and Cheddar Apple Pie...delicious! I'm giving a nod to this recipe being in the new book, as well as drbabs's runner up Red Pepper recipe! Of course, as stated earlier I'm for all the runner-up finalists recipes finding a place in the new cookbook!

Does one of Merrill's recipes qualify for a wildcard? I made her choc. chip oatmeal cookies again a few days ago and I'm telling you they are the best cookies ever.

i also love rivka's maple yogurt poundcake (and, looking at the comments, i think a lot of other people do, too).

Jennifer Ann's Couscous with Roasted Fennel and Toasted Almonds is one of my all-time favorite food52 recipes.

I'd recommend thirshfeld's Jose Mae's Hoppin Good Steak Sauce, monkeymom's Chinese American Pork Roast, Paul Joseph's Garam Masala, the Chocolate Swirl Cinnamon Marshmallows, and luvcookbooks' Raised Pork Pie.

There are so many great recipes and so much talent in the food52 community and one recipe that I've made a few times now is this:

Of course, there are many more, but I just happened to recall the name of this off the top of my head...more later!!

I thought both recipes this week (brown bag lunch) were fabulous, and I had trouble deciding between them. I hope you'll make whichever one comes in second a Wildcard.

Oh lordy, there are so many fabulous recipes here - Waverly's My Grandmother's Tomato Bisque is so lovely. I must have had it for lunch once a week all summer long. Sassyradish Pumpkin RIcotta Pancakes, ENunn's Lemony Blueberry Pancakes. Edamame's Fresh Sriracha is amazing -I've made five batches. And that's just off the top of my head!

Thanks for the Challah shout out, monkeymom!

And let's not forget the great sister-stand-off and the non-winning Devils On Hatchback from Helenthenanny - they certainly deserve another chance - unbelievably tasty.

That tomato bisque recipe is from the Weary Epicurean - wow, does that look fantastic. 3 ingredients: tomatoes, butter, and cream.

Bogre's Hungarian Meatballs are sensational, as were so many of the Runner Up recipes from last year.

Glutton for Life's grapefruit sorbet - I have made it so many times for company, always to rave reviews (the infusion of mint and ginger into the sorbet are lovely).

So many good ones. The first that come to mind are AJ's Buttermilk Oatmeal bread and a dash of bitter's Iron Skillet Pizza. I also make MrsW's Challah on a regular basis as well...oh aargersi's Ranchero sauce...yum!

Aargersi made me her ranchero sauce the last time I visited her in Austin, and it is wonderful.

The Reubenesque by lastnightsdinner - now that we are coming back around to turkey leftovers ... I probably ate 15 of these last year - SO good!!!!

While I was eating dinner I was thinking about this. I stand by my first choice but then these came to mind and they are equal. They are all so good I wouldn't want to choose one if I were deserted on and island, I would eat sand before I chose between these. Pierino's Walking Down the Hall Part 2, AJ's Tamarind Glazed Swordfish, Amanda's Clam, Parsley and Garlic Spaghetti, Beet Root Burgers, and Nainamo Bars.

Oh, and if I were on a desert island and had to chose a menu, this might be it.

There are some many creative ones to choose...including all the Editor's Picks and Runner Ups . It would be great to give some of these a chance to be in the second book.
