Cooked something genius lately? We want to hear about it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Genius Recipes runs on community. Every week I humbly ask for your tips -- the game-changing recipes you just heard about at a dinner party or on Twitter, and the flawless ones you've been cooking for years. And you deliver. (Look at all the great stuff Food52ers have found above!)
So this is your official reminder: keep them coming! A genius seafood technique? Or one for mushrooms, or okra, or cherries? The cookie or cocktail that made you a local legend? We've got 93 (!) Genius Recipes under our belts -- who knows what else might be out there?
Got a genius recipe to share -- from a classic cookbook, an online source, or anywhere, really? Please send it my way (and tell me what's so smart about it) at [email protected] (or just tell us in the comments!).

I'm an ex-economist, ex-Californian who moved to New York to work in food media in 2007. Dodgy career choices aside, I can't help but apply the rational tendencies of my former life to things like: recipe tweaking, digging up obscure facts about pizza, and deciding how many pastries to put in my purse for "later."
