If you've ever wanted to take a sneak peek behind the scenes of our community testing process, this post is for you! First-time CPer Jenny B featured the testing process for her chosen Chocolate & Spice CP recipe, the Earl Grey and Five Spice Millionaire's Shortbread from Anitalectric, on her blog Centered by the Plate.

Jenny B takes us through the process of gathering ingredients (including spices that require a trip to the Asian grocery and some hard-to-find nut flours), and it's eye-opening to read along as she learns more about gluten-free cooking. We love how fun it is to see into the kitchens of our beloved community members!

We hope you're inspired to claim a Community Pick recipe next time the call goes out -- there are still a few Canned Fish recipes for the taking!
