These recipes look good, right? They are. We're lucky to know about them -- and it's all thanks to you!
I've said it time and again: there's no match for the Genius Recipes that the Food52 community sends my way -- the crazy new trick you tried last week, the soup you've been making for 20 years, the dessert your friends insist you bring to every party. You know they work, and why they're life-changing. And then -- you heroes -- you share them with us.
So this is your official reminder: keep those tips coming! A genius chicken technique? Or one for greens, or beans, or bread? We've unearthed 119 Genius Recipes so far. I can't wait to see (and cook) what else you have in store.
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."
