Editors' Picks -- Week 41

April  8, 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:

  • 1. A weekend stay on a small-scale working family farm with Feather Down Farm Days
  • 2. A snazzy food52 tote from L.L. Bean
  • 3. Three selections from Rick's Picks' line of delicious pickled goods


See what other Food52 readers are saying.

Thanks for picking my lamb as well. Might I add that those macarons of MrsWheelbarrows are lovely!

Your lamb was wonderful! We really loved it.
MrsWheelbarrow April 8, 2010
Oh my gosh, that lamb looks amazing. It's on my 'must do' list.

I'm so thrilled that you liked it ChezSuzanne! I hope that you will too MrsWheelbarrow. I'm open to suggestions for improvement, so please keep me updated with any good tweaks.
TheWimpyVegetarian April 9, 2010
Honestly, monkeymom, I wouldn't change a thing and can't imagine that the original you had in Berkeley was as good as yours!
MrsWheelbarrow April 8, 2010
Thanks for choosing my macaron photo! I loved those little cookies, as my hips will attest.
