Our fearless Creative Director Kristen Miglore has been uncovering them in her column by the same name for five years.
But do you know exactly what it takes to declare a recipe genius? Or where Kristen finds them, how she tests them, or the ones that have taken on a life of their own?
This episode of Burnt Toast is dedicated to the answers to all of these questions, and many more—it's a look at the inner workings of Genius Recipes from the genius herself. (It was also an excuse for me to sit down with a friend and colleague and get a little nerdy about cooking, but that's neither here nor there.)
As I mention in the episode, we talk about a lot of recipes during the show. We explain many of them as we go, but for those of you who'd like the full recipes, here they are, below. They're listed in the order they're mentioned, and to be honest, all together, they read a little like a greatest hits album might. Enjoy.
What recipes have you tried that are truly genius? Tell me in the comments.
