I can pick up the Harvest Minestrone with Herb Lemon Pesto if you need me to take on a second recipe. Just let me know ASAP as I'll need to take care of that soon. Thanks.
MrsWheelbarrow May 28, 2010
I can pick up the Soup au Pistou if needed. It looks so yummy, I can't resist.
AntoniaJames May 28, 2010
I'll very gladly test the Happy Accident Minestrone, if necessary. With this cool weather, I'm so in the mood for soup! ;o)
AntoniaJames May 28, 2010
(I'm dying to try the Shades of Green but can't find lovage, anywhere, in the East Bay. . . at least not in any market, or even in any nursery . . . . I'm looking for seeds locally available, at the moment. I couldn't test that recipe officially for EP honors anyway, as Sallycan is my sister, so I know I'm going to love it, even before I taste it. ;o) . . . )
WinnieAb May 28, 2010
I can get some lovage and will happily make the Shades of Green Soupe, if needed!

My weekend visitors will love being the testers for the Pain Perdu with Bananas & Pecans!
drbabs May 28, 2010
Oh, excellent! I hope you all like it!
drbabs May 28, 2010
If no one else wants the Overnight Apple-Cinnamon French Toast, I'll be happy to test that as well.
emmanation May 27, 2010
Baked French Toast - mmmm. It's mine, all mine... (wicked laugh).

(Unless of course someone else beat me to it :) ).

I'll try the Pistou Bruschetta. Interesting idea!

I'll take the Nutella Stuffed French Toast if it's not taken.

I'd love to test the Brulée lemon curd French toast with Almonds for the all-gal brunch I'm hosting on Monday!

Can't wait to hear your comments! Enjoy and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Savory French toast please
Food52 May 27, 2010
We actually already tested that one (and loved it!) -- anything else from the candidates list you'd like to test, MrsWheelbarrow?
MrsWheelbarrow May 27, 2010
Um. Misread. How about French toast 525
Food52 May 27, 2010
Sorry, it looks like WinnieAb already snagged that one -- anything else?
MrsWheelbarrow May 27, 2010
Lesson of the day - do not try to do this from an IPhone w/bad wifi .... Yes, I'd like to test Pain Perdu w/Blueberry Lemon Bread. The first blueberries arrived at the market this afternoon.
