Behind each of the 4,500 recipes that have appeared in Everyday Food magazine is a meticulous process of research, testing, re-testing, design, and printing, with the finished product finally arriving at 1.3 million homes around the world.

It all starts with an idea that's in line with the voice of the magazine -- something seasonal, perhaps, and definitely something nutritious, budget-friendly, and easy to prepare.

For the June issue, associate food editor Dawn Perry proposed a Tex-Mex combo plate (pictured). Watch the video to see the development of the dish from conception to publication.

Loved this video. It is fascinating to see how a recipe is developed for the magazine! Thanks for sharing that with us.

Martha mentioned on the show that we could pull up the recipes on the App, but I don't think you can. For instance, I search the title from the magazine and found zero entries. I then tried to search a main ingredient such as "zucchini" for the Raw Corn and Zucchini Salad, and selected "Salads" for the Meal/Course. After clicking search, I had 11 results but not the recipe from the magazine.
