Update 4/20/12

Not too much to say right now, just a few things:

-If you tested something a while ago and never got around to posting your results and still want to, don’t be shy and go ahead! Even if the recipe is marked complete, it’s okay to share your feedback.

-As previously mentioned, now is a good time to take stock of what you did test.

-I may have a “recipe request II” post opening up soon for any of those last minute requests/ideas!



Update 3/20/12

Testing complete for previous batch of recipes. Final wave of recipes will pop up between now and mid-April. Not too many, but a few.

For now, you may want to take note of how many recipes you’ve tested. DO NOT send me this number now. I will be sending out another post soon asking for your details in late April/mid-May.


Update 1/24/12:

Second round of recipe testing will beging trickling in this week. Look out for an email with more details. I’m also cleaning up these updates. Please do not test recipes marked TESTING COMPLETE.
