    Just a suggestion to the editors - can you make this more obvious to readers in your layout every week? I have had a heck of a time founding this. Thanks!

    Hey, I found it! I was wondering if we were still even doing community testing because I never saw this show up on the homepage. I'm so happy I stumbled onto it via someone's comment. Anyways, I'd love to test the pomegranate roast lamb, please!

    Just saw this, madebylis! I answered your Hotline question before I realized...Thanks so much for trying it out (and I hope it works out despite the fact that Seville oranges are hard to come by just yet).

    Oh I'm so tickled you want to try it! I know it's cheesy but I'm a little giddy that I got a recipe selected for an EP - and to have you test it...wonderful!

    I'm really looking forward to it and was so pleased that, for once, I actually was on the site at a time when there were so many EP choices. And that this is one of them! I've had my eye on it since you posted it. ;o)
