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!

A big thank you to SageGreen for testing my Dandelion Clementine Cooler!

Thank you lorigoldsby for going out of your way your test my ice cream and for writing such a beautiful review!

Dabblings, I can't get over how beautiful your picture is of your peony ice cream...
Dabblings June 16, 2011
Thanks! I was laughing about it earlier because I hadn't really given it enough time to set and it was about 90 degrees outside when I shoved it on that table of peonies. I got about 5 shots before it had melted too much. Rookie luck I guess.

you're welcome! Hope to try again next year with a super fragrant bunch--I only had enough to make a half batch!

Congratulations to all! And thank you Editors and JOANG for your lovely comments on my Sweet Tea Slush. ( I think the booze idea sounds great!)
Panfusine June 16, 2011
Congratulations to all the EPs.. Is it OK to brim with a squeal of happiness at seeing a photograph of the EP you tested prominently featured in the post?? Kmartinelli, the limonana was simply splendid, thanks for the privilege of testing this!

Thanks to smrtallie & sdebrango for such wonderful reviews of my recipes! Was a pleasure testing Syronai's Cucumber-Fennel Fizz - something I'm sure to be drinking often once it actually gets to be summer weather around here!

Congrats to all on their Editors' Picks! I'm looking forward to working my way through the list this summer. (And thanks cookinginvictoria for such a lovely review of my Hot Fudge Shake.)
EmilyC June 16, 2011
And I'm thrilled that Ecossaise's Chocolate Soda got a well-deserved nod -- I really enjoyed testing it!
cookinginvictoria June 16, 2011
You are welcome -- I loved the shake and was so glad I got to test it. And now I have some delicious leftover hot fudge sauce in the fridge to make more shakes, sundaes and other ice cream treats!
