A little bird gave me the recipe

Doesn't that salt & peeper shaker (March 31, 2009 post) look like a Twitter bird? Well, there is a twitterer (I guess that's what they're called) named @twecipe. The idea is that you send @twecipe a list of ingredients and he/she/it sends you back a full recipe using those ingredients.

If you know anything about Twitter, then you know that all messages are restricted to 140 characters. I don't think it would be hard to do a list of ingredients in such a small space, but what about a full recipe? Let's see.

This comes in at 137 characters (spaces are counted):
Marinate flank steak in A-1/broil, thinly slice. Salsa: dice 2 nectarines, mince small red onion, lime juice, minced jalapeno + cilantro.

A little loose, but I bet most people could cook from that.
