A&M, Are we starting a new book now with Week 53 or will these winners be in the "old book"? Is Whole Foods promoting the contests? I have noticed that a LOT of the recipes are submitted by cooks who have never submitted before...the WF sponsored contests are their only recipes. Is there going to be any "closure" on the book? Are you going to continue with the single contests? Will there be any more wild cards? I am sure I can think of a lot more questions, but I just got back from a trip and have to think up a mozzarella recipe...probably burrata.

I, too, have noticed a rather dramatic change in food52 over the past few weeks. It will be interesting see how these trends play out.

a great first-timers cheese to make! Have fun everyone! (I think I'll head to the kitchen. I'm thinking Moz Bread......)
Yes, he did. And he is included in the New Yorker's 20 under 40 this week. Me? I'm just me. I just cook and occasionally turn to literary devices which include using my nom de guerre as a rubric. No big deal.
Sorry about that. It's not our real name. A literary trope that refers to "our" blog; http://eggsinpurgatory.com but yes, maybe it's a bad habit. A friend of mine wrote a prize winning novel written almost entirely in the first person plural.
Pierino always has faith especially after the England v USA 1-1 match today. Actually a very good result for the USA.
But now we'll get 100 riffs on caprese salad. I guess I should ask, does buratta count?

Man, I hope so. We're getting incredible locally-produced stuff. I love burrata.

125 cucumber recipes!! Y'all must be exhausted! No wonder you cut it back to one theme!
Merrill S. June 12, 2010
We're testing out one theme a week and seeing how that works -- would give us a bit of a break and more time to make other cool changes to the site!

TOTALLY understandable! I don't know how you guys find the time to live your lives as well. Hopefully you all can find the time to take vacations too. And honeymoons! LOVE the changes you keep making though.

Merrill (& Amanda), would you guys consider having the option of cooks 'drafting' recipes and publishing when they're done - sometimes, pressed for sleep, I only have the energy to write half the recipe down, wishing I could save it and complete it some other day. Of course that's not an option at the mo so.....(but you're not to blame for my lack of sleep so please don't feel bad :-). Anyhow, I'm sorry if this has already been said in a previous discussion on site improvements. Cheers

Kitchen Butterfly, just draft your recipe in a Word (or equivalent text) document and use select/control C/control X to lift the text from that document into the recipe fields/text boxes. Minimize the browser page to half (right side the screen) and the document with the recipe also to half (left side of the screen), once you've completed drafting the recipe in the Word document, and you're in business. You don't need to use the measurement feature (left two fields); you can simply drop your text of the quantity/measure/ingredient into the text field on the far right, in the ingredient entry spot. Send me a message via my profile if you're having problems doing it this way, and I'll help you trouble shoot, as best I can. ;o)

Thanks AntoniaJames - it worked. Made life much easier to input the ingredients that way. Superb. I just used it to upload a cherry recipe! Thank you. I would still love the draft facility though....if only for the comfort feeling it gives me!

Yay mozzarella! Sconeman loves cheese - he should really be called Cheeseman.
If your husband is from Wisconsin, like mine is, you get to call him "Cheesehead" ;)

Is this contest for your best mozarella cheese recipe or a recipe using mozzarella?
Kitchen B. June 11, 2010
You dared to ask...rather than assume. I read, wondered and interpreted.....ha, a lesson on clarity and focus!
Loves F. June 11, 2010
I'm hoping it's a recipe using mozzarella... I can't imagine there being tons and tons of unique, different recipes for actually making the cheese?
aargersi June 11, 2010
Yay for MOZZERELLA! Looks like time to break out the cheese making kit ... fun! Make you father something cheesey for FD!!!
aargersi June 12, 2010
It's FUN! But, not sure I will have time - I am canning jam like crazy (blackberries and peaches are here!)

I LOVEEEEEEEEE this. Isn't Father's day next week though?
Yes, sorry we're missing that theme this year -- but we do have a grill theme this week.
Lizthechef June 11, 2010
No Father's Day theme? Gosh, I'm so disappointed...
