Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

I believe I said dukkah eggs earlier, but I don't see it now, so I'll take them again!

Warm congratulations to all EPs and EP candidates. Passing on testing, as I'm heading to Florence to meet up with the daughter. Also meeting up with Emiko! Yikes!

So glad your "glitch" has resolved - can only imagine the scrambling...Now, someone has to try my Taj Mahal Salad, perfect for a picnic lunch over the lovely holiday weekend ;)

my own - see my recipe for Mama;s Mango Chutney on the site - making a big batch tomorrow. Wish I could send one a pint via UPS - where do you live?

I'm making this too, and I cannot wait! I've had my eye on it since it was posted. I'll be sure to leave a comment. Will probably make some mango chutney too, as the mangoes available now are drop dead gorgeous . . . and taste as good as they look!! ;o)

Am bummed, Lizthechef because I tried to get it while the server was having its issues. This sounds very similar to the chicken salad my mother used to make. It was a staple in our house and delicious. Chutney, grapes.....I think I'll make it anyway!

Sorry for all the confusion, things seem to be running smoothly now and there are a few recipes available for dibs: Rosemary Skewered Baby Red Potatoes with Skordalia, Artichokes with Mint, Lemon, and Pepper, Grape Leaf Pilaf, Summertime Salmon Salad with Black Pepper Water Crackers, and Taj Mahal Salad

Hmm. I called dibs on Herbed Chicken Thighs Roasted in a Paper Bag earlier today, and it showed up, but now it's gone. So, I'll call dibs again on that, please. Thanks, everyone. ;o)

Sorry - Food52 is stuttering and I missed out on this one. Will try anyway since it matches the rest of our 4th of July menu.

Hmm, my computer's wigging out too, and won't load things. Guess KB got it while I waited. I'll try the tomato galette instead.
