Community Picks -- Maple

April 12, 2012

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 Community Picks recipes — the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

The submissions for this contest were phenomenal. I don't know how anyone could narrow them down. I got lucky and tested two, and made another one in the same period -- all winners!
