To thank our members for their dedication to helping out their fellow cooks, every month we’ll choose a Food52er whose activity on the Hotline has caught our eye, and treat him or her to a $25 gift certificate to our Shop

Today: See who had the write stuff this month.

We're excited to announce that May's Hotline MVP is mrslarkin!

Mrslarkin has an impressive number of community picks, contest finalists, and contest-winning recipes in her (very full) recipe box. Today though, we're lauding her impressive actions on the Hotline.

She's perhaps best known for her scones and baked goods, so it's no surprise you'll find her weighing in on baking questions: sharing recommendations for the best cookbooks on the science of baking, offering a sweet solution for camouflaging muffins with sunken tops, and assisting cake bakers attempting to adapt recipes. But she doesn't just solve baking conundrums, she jumps in on a wide variety of questions, from suggesting favorite dishes (for pescatarian mains and sides for chicken pot pies) to troubleshooting (everything from ravioli filling issues to how to draw the salt out of lupini beans).

Congratulations to mrslarkin and thanks to everyone who participates over on the Hotline—the community wouldn’t be the same without you.

Want to boost your kitchen karma? We’re looking for enthusiastic participation throughout the month that is helpful, thoughtful, and considerate.
