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 the winning headnote and 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!
If you've ever wanted to take a sneak peek behind the scenes of our community testing process, this post is for you! First-time CPer Jenny B featured the testing process for her chosen Chocolate & Spice CP recipe, the Earl Grey and Five Spice Millionaire's Shortbread from Anitalectric, on her blog Centered by the Plate. Jenny B takes us through the process of gathering ingredients (including spices that require a trip to the Asian grocery and some hard-to-find nut flours), and it's eye-opening to read along as she learns more about gluten-free cooking. We love how fun it is to see into the kitchens of our beloved community members! We hope you're inspired to claim a Community Pick recipe next time the call goes out -- there are still a few Canned Fish recipes for the taking!
