Any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm (EST).

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Community-Tested Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Is there anything left? Am I too late?
Niknud September 23, 2011
Step away from your computer for a few hours and look what happens! Must be more in synch with the F52 timeline. Just so you all know - I'm making one anyway (said with the same small bravado my four year old uses when informing me that he is not, under any circumstances, brushing his teeth).
Niknud September 23, 2011
Oh, and congratulations on some amazing looking recipes! Probably should have started out with that bit.....
Lydiac September 22, 2011

Every time I read "There'sAlwaysPie" I laugh - such a great tag!
mrslarkin September 22, 2011
I agree. What a great motto to live by. Thanks for testing the French Toast TAP! Don't be afraid of the Pernod. :)
There'sAlwaysPie September 23, 2011
Ha - thanks! :) I encourage everyone to live by this motto - and eat more pie! I do not fear the Pernod - but was glad to read the pointer about not downing a shot of it during cooking....
VanessaS September 22, 2011
I would love to test the Tarte Tatin aux Poires et Vin, please!

Sorry, I wasn't able to check back earlier to test another entry, but I look forward to making some of these recipes on my own. Congrats to all EP candidates -- these recipes all look and sound just wonderful!

victoriaspencer September 22, 2011
Yes just candidates today. We're now dividing the dibs and the EP posts. Editors' Picks for pears with photographs will be revealed next Wednesday or Thursday, like last weeks post,
ashleychasesdinner September 22, 2011
I will take the Peartini! A bit selfish on my part, because after this crazy week ( I know it is only Thursday), I will have a good excuse for making this drink!
wssmom September 22, 2011
I hope you love it and thanks for testing it!
Lizthechef September 22, 2011
