Our Ten Favorite 6 Word Recipes

July  4, 2012

As part of our Recipe Writing Week, we asked you all to condense your recipe brilliance into 6 words. It’s not an easy task, but you far surpassed our expectations. As promised, we’re posting our ten favorites and their authors -- these are the ones that made us laugh, made our mouths water, and made us want to jump in the kitchen. That instant. Thank you to everyone who sent a tweet our way! Here’s to great recipes, both long at short, and the inspiration that our community constantly provides.

We're off to light our grills, stir our cocktails, and watch things explode in the sky, (and we hope you are too), so forgive us for being a little slow around here today. Have a lovely, patriotic Fourth of July, and we'll see you back here full speed ahead tomorrow.

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
