Editors' Picks -- Week 40

April  1, 2010


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!

We've also added some incentives to reward your hard work and make things interesting. The three people who test the most Editors' Picks candidates by June 1, 2010 will be entered in a drawing to win one of these fabulous prizes:

Congrats to the picks. Thanks to you WinnieAb for testing my recipe as well. I have to agree with you all...I went through 5 tests of sugar cookies to get the most dependable chewiest cookie, plus trying kaykay's macaroons last week. Sweet lord I hope for a vegetable theme next week!

Ladies, you got your wish...

Mrs. W,
You're not kidding.
Between panna cotta testing and all the sugar cookies I've made and consumed this week, I've easily gained 5 pounds...

I echo aargersi. So much food, so little time. Soon there will be a 12-step program for Food52'ers. Either that, or a special department at Weight Watchers.

everything sounds so good - congratulations to all! How am I ever going to find time to try all of these???
