Here's how recipe testing works. We have about 15 panels of recipe testers for each magazine. Each panel gets e-mailed a recipe with a survey about once per month, depending on how many recipes our editors have to send out. We ask that testers make the recipe, then fill out the survey. The survey asks if you would make the recipe again, if you followed the recipe as written, was anything difficult to understand or do, etc. It probably takes 5-10 minutes to fill it out. Of course, if there's a recipe we've sent that you're not interested in or don't have time to do (we usually ask that recipe testers complete surveys within two weeks), feel free to pass on it.
