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!

Congrats to all! While all of James' photos are beautiful as usual, I'm mesmerized by the one for the Not-Quite Nicoise. I can't stop looking at it -- it's stunning! You could seriously sell prints in different sizes (framed or not) in the Food52 shop!
