We know that Food52 is filled with creative, talented home cooks. But we've got our share of funny wordsmiths too. Check out some choice quotes pulled from recipe headnotes submitted to Your Best Cherry Tomatoes, and laugh along with us. Happy Friday!

"He used to go out in the morning with a vodka-filled syringe and give a shot to his cherry tomatoes."
- Helen's All Night Dinner on Cherry Bombs

"I spend most of the summer in upstate New York, in Saratoga Springs, where I get paid to watch horses ridden by small men run in circles. (I am not making this up)."
- wssmom on Bloody Maria on a Stick

"Now listen - this is a salad, not a wedding cake, so you should taste as you go and adjust the amounts of everything to suit your preference."
- aargersi on Minted Feta and Cherry Tomato Salad

"I first encountered a variation of this recipe at a work potluck. I'm not sure if the original creator even remembers bringing it (and it's entirely possible that I somehow invented the occurrence in my head ... there was a lot of beer at this potluck)."
- clcatto on Chickpea Feta Summer Salad

"The first of many evenings without George Clooney."
- boulangere on First Night in Florence Spaghetti

Maybe George is with wssmom watching horses run in circles being ridden by small men. And since I am not a baker, aargersi has finally made the distinction for me between a wedding cake and a salad! So much to learn and question...so little time.

Interesting George theory, though to my knowledge he isn't especially short.

Another prize-winning, riotous collection. Thanks for the inclusion. Still searching for George.

We had imaginary ones! Ginger actually has a Halloween costume that is her as a horse and a little cowboy rider. She hates it. A lot.
