$25,000 Best Recipe Contest Categories:
Enter in any of the 5 categories with as many recipes as you would like:
Baking Pan Favorites
The 13x9-inch pan just might be a family cook’s best friend. It’s the perfect vessel for just about anything you would want to take along to a potluck. This category includes all of the other baking pans, too…from 8x8’s and 9x9’s to springforms and loaf pans to cookie sheets.
If you can grab it and eat it with your hands, your tasty treat belongs in this category. Yes, the rule here is, “No utensils required.” A burrito, a cupcake, a sandwich, a kabob, a cookie, a tiny tart or a mini quiche...the possibilities are practically endless. Easy eating is so convenient for a potluck. Show us your creative side!
Light & Delicious Fare
Do you serve a dish that’s really yummy—and good for you, too? Most of us say we want to eat better without sacrificing the flavors we love. So share your most appreciated and most requested light recipes—for main dishes, sides, desserts, soups, appetizers, snacks, etc.
Almost Homemade Recipes
You don’t have time to make a meal from scratch every day, so you use convenience items sometimes. The result is still spectacular. So what if you started with a rotisserie chicken from the deli or a packaged cookie mix? That’s not cheating; it’s helping. You doctored it up and made something that will be a hit at the next potluck.
Slow Cooker Recipes
It’s as close to kitchen magic as we get. With a little bit of prep in the morning, a savory sensation comes together in a slow cooker during the day. We’d love to hear about your favorite roast or pasta creation, the soup that your family begs for, the appetizer that’s the hit of the party, the warm dessert that draws oohs and aahs.
