Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read each tester's comments by clicking through to the Editors' Picks recipes — the comments are under "Amanda and Merrill's Notes" at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as an EP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Congratulations to another great batch of Editors' Picks!

Thank you for the nomination, and thanks Vrunka for the lovely testing note. You're right - it does make a LOT of challah. But at the rate my kids eat this stuff, it's never enough!

Congratulations to everyone! These look wonderful.

Such a lovely compilation. Many thanks to Sticksandscones for the review on 21 Years of Carrot Cake. I agree with her take on the icing, it's a bit finicky... still trying to master!

What a seriously amazing group of recipes! I've loved the background stories and the care that was put into the reviews. Much thanks to Burnt Offerings for a wonderful review of Smoked Tea Caramels.
