You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.

What's the best apple? That's the important, autumnal question that we're answering this week. Childhood memories, honeycrisps, and explanation points loom large, although some of us (ahem, Amanda) would prefer no apples at all.

Which variety of apple do you like best for eating out of hand? Tell us in the comments!

Merrill is the inspiration for this week's Too Many Cooks question. Yes, Merrill -- who you can see here clutching her cut finger after a Horseradish Vodka Bloody Mary mishap -- who once "burned down her kitchen attempting to deep-fry eggs."

Maybe you've guessed the question by now. Hint: it's one that we ask all of our contest winners.

What's your most spectacular kitchen disaster? Let the mishaps and mess-ups begin.

The weather is cooler, the sun is setting earlier, and it's time to stop eating tomato salads and turn on our ovens again. With that in mind, this week we're answering the question: What's the first thing you cook when the weather gets cold?

Comfort food is as personal as it is delicious -- soups, stews, ragus, you name it. What's your fall go-to?

We've been all about eggs this week -- frying them every which way, cracking them any way we can -- so we decided to tackle our favorite egg preparations for our weekly group post.

The answers were a little surprising! As Kristen pointed out, egg preferences are really solidified in childhood -- so if your parents favored soft-boiled eggs, chances are that you do, too. Pretty Proustian, huh? And then of course we had a couple of all-around egg-loving abstainers.

What's your favorite way to eat eggs?

With temperatures cooling, the way we cook is changing: rather than just sprinkling some sea salt on a fresh heirloom tomato, it's the season for caramelized onions, roasted vegetables, soup, and...lots of herbs.

This week, we tackle the question: What's your favorite herb? Our answers are pretty divisive -- everyone has their favorite. Here they are, in order of popularity.

Did we miss your favorite herb -- tarragon, parsley, marjoram, or anything else? Let us know in the comments!

This week is Summer Week at Food52, which means, basically, that the lot of us are off summering -- some of us go to Maine, others to Hawaii, but all of us are keeping one eye on the site, and the other on our stocked coolers and full drinks. Naturally, we thought it would be fun to give you a bunch of pictures of us adventuring while we adventure. It's meta, we know. Below is what happens when you leave the Food52 staff up to their own devices on a farm, at a rest stop, and within 10 feet of barbecue.

Read on to hear our existential waffling about our true favorite flavors -- which for the record, we define as "the flavor you could eat every day, any time, for the rest of your life" -- and comment with yours, too.

While we prepare our favorites from your haiku this week, we thought we'd share our own -- the FOOD52 staff (and Amanda's husband Tad, who wanted in on the fun) put on our thinking caps this week to bring you our best 17-syllable poems. The results were surprising -- we have more than one closet poet among us!
