As you may know, it's Recipe Writing Week here at FOOD52, and as such, we are spreading the recipe writing love to the almighty and boundless Twitter universe. We've enlisted the help of a few friends and culinary mavens, but we need yours, too.

Recipes, Boiled Down
Inspired by the Six-Word Memoir project, our recipe week contributors will be tweeting their own recipes, reduced into six words. Like a great amuse bouche, it'll be one small bite in recipe form. Watch for their delicious tweets, hashtagged with #6wordrecipe, at noon and 2:00pm each day.

Where You Come In
As a staff, we've used our collective brainpower to create a tome of our own six-word recipes, which we'll be tweeting at 10:00am and 3:00pm every day. But, we're wagering a guessing game out of our 10:00am tweet. Because we're fun like that. Each one will be a Genius Recipe that we've published -- it's your job to guess which recipe we've tweeted. (Be sure to mention us using our handle, @food52, and use the #6wordrecipe hashtag when you guess.) Reach into your archival recipe brilliance, give it your best shot, and check back at 5:00pm, when we'll be tweeting the answer to that day's recipe.

Don't stop at just a guess, though -- we'd love to see your best six word recipes, too. Use our handle -- @food52 -- and hashtag -- #6wordrecipe -- and we'll publish the ten best recipe tweets right here on the feed next week.

Earn Your Winnings
The prize for guessing correctly? Your own, personal assurance that you deserve your chef whites. That you're worth your salt in the kitchen, and that we're proud of you. (What could be a better reward?) Plus, you'll get to play virtual games with us all day long. And we're fun. So get your recipe thinking hats on (or shoes, or whatever it is that brings you kitchen luck), and come play. See you in the twitter world, dear readers.

Sorry if that was confusing! We have a few set times for tweets each day: two from Recipe Week contributors at 12:00 and 2:00 each day, and two from us at 10:00 and 3:00 each day. Then, we're tweeting the answer to our 10:00 tweet at 5:00. (It's a lot of times, we know.) The rest is a free for all! Tweet your recipes at any and all hours of the day. Hope that makes sense!
