Oops -- checked back a little too late and I see that nothing is left. Yes, you do have to be lightning quick! I look forward to making many of these yummy-sounding recipes on my own. Congrats to all of the EPs and EPCs!
Helen's A. August 25, 2011
Congratulations to all selected! Thanks for selecting my recipe for testing. Have been stuck on jury duty for the past 8 days, so I won't be able to do any testing.
Sagegreen August 25, 2011
Cherry bombs, please. You have to be quick!
Sagegreen August 25, 2011
And congrats to the eps and epcs!

My pleasure. I have the infusion made up from another recipe, just have to get a syringe!
raspberryeggplant August 25, 2011
I'll take the cherry tomato rasam - I grew up eating rasam on a nearly daily basis so I'm curious how this one stacks up!

I'm sticking my toe in the reviewing pool....I'd like to do the cherry tomato pesto please!
Green C. August 26, 2011
Me too. I guess there can be more than one tester, right?
Green C. August 26, 2011
Oops I should have read on, then I would have seen Kristen's note below. @ Niknud, enjoy testing the pesto.
cookinginvictoria August 25, 2011
May I take the ladybugs on a log? Sounds so delicious!
cookinginvictoria August 25, 2011
Oops -- I see that Checker beat me to it. I'll see if I can find another recipe to test. :)
checker August 25, 2011
Beat by only a nose - but thank you for letting me have it!
Kristen M. August 25, 2011
Sorry cookinginvictoria, checker snagged that one just before you! Any others strike your fancy?
checker August 25, 2011
My I have the Ladybugs on a Log, please? Love the name! And many congrats to all of the EPs!
checker August 25, 2011
Oops. "MAY I have..." The tomatoes and anchovies had me all in a tizzy...
gingerroot August 25, 2011
Congrats to all the EP's/EPC's! These are all mouth watering but I would love to test the Clams with Grilled Chorizo and Charred Tomatoes. Thanks!
Ms. T. August 25, 2011
Thanks for testing! I just re-read my recipe and realized how vague it is--or should I say "open to interpretation", ha ha--so I wish you luck and look forward to hearing how you interpret it :) I figured that all the Food52ers are such accomplished cooks that a "sketch" is usually enough to send them in the right direction!
gingerroot August 25, 2011
Lol! My pleasure...I have been wanting clams and this fits the bill perfectly.
BlueKaleRoad August 25, 2011
Congratulations to all the EPs and EP candidates! I am headed out of town this weekend and won't be able to test any of these wonderful recipes, but have saved quite a few to try later.
sticksnscones August 25, 2011
