Editors' Picks

September 18, 2009 • 0 Comments


Each week, we'll highlight not only the finalists in the contests, but here we'll let you know which recipes were named "Editors' Picks" -- recipes that we found promising and interesting. And when you do a recipe search, you can always filter the results to show all recipes that have been named Editors' Picks. This is one of several ways we're keeping the site curated, so you have access to the best recipes possible.

In some cases, the Editors' Picks recipes are ones that were on our short list to test. In others, they're simply recipes that, although they may not have been good fit for the particular contest theme, are still noteworthy. If your recipe is named an Editors' Pick, you can still enter it in future contests.

We realized with Your Best Tart theme this week that we should have more clearly defined the theme. For anyone who entered recipes that were galettes and crostatas, we will be holding a contest for these soon.

Editors' Picks

August 6, 2009 • 0 Comments


We've seen some great submissions to the recipe contests so far. This past week, we received a particularly large and promising selection, and we'd like to thank everyone who participated. Although we can only choose two finalists for each theme, we do have a way of recognizing other noteworthy competitors. Each week, we select our Editors' Picks: recipes that we haven't tested but that seem promising and/or unique. There's no set number; one week we may choose ten, and the next week none. This week, we chose quite a few. You can see all of our selections, past and present, by going to The Recipes and clicking on "Editors' Picks" beneath the search field.
