The best kinds of recipes teach us how to be smarter—and therefore better and happier—cooks: They rethink conventional methodology and make our lives a little breezier (or tastier) along the way. Roast your pasta for a pleasantly nutty canvas, stockpile cooked rice in your freezer for super-quick congee, or use sweet potatoes for frosting that's as creamy as the canned stuff.

So spill the beans: What are the unexpected, novel ways you cook? What's your best recipe with a smarty pants trick or technique?

The winner will receive $500 to our shop and all six Food52 cookbooks.
