Cooking School Best Recipe Spin-Off Contest
Ever adapted an existing recipe and had it turn out even better than the original? Whether made by a friend, found in a cookbook or inspired by your favorite restaurant, the Taste of Home Cooking School wants to know where you first saw or tasted something that grabbed your attention and what you changed to make it uniquely yours. Impress our judges and you may win cash prizes up to $500!
Fall Celebrations Recipe Contest
Who's game for a fall celebration? Send recipes that always make your invite list. Readers crave Oktoberfest dishes like caramel-pear kuchen, slow cooker sauerbraten and German sweet potato salad. Get Halloween-happy with monster cookies and spiderweb nachos, or go crazy with candy corn. The harvest brings home comfort: think spaghetti squash stew, cider-glazed root veggies or pumpkin coffee cake. Lower the tailgate for bacon-corn dip, muffin-cup muffuletta, Tater Tot kabobs and root beer fudge. Your recipes that bring the noise (and have 12 ingredients max) could win you $500 and big-time props in an upcoming issue of Simple & Delicious.
Holiday Appetizers Recipe Contest
When guests get snacky before the main event, home cooks keep them charmed and happy. Show us how you do that with your bite-size quiches or veggie tartlets. Revelers love to keep cozy with cups of slow-cooker mac and cheese and handfuls of spicy trail mix. There's even room for your famous fried ravioli on a stick and sausage-stuffed artichokes. If it puts the wonder in your winter land and has 12 ingredients max, share it. You could win $500 and props in an upcoming issue of Taste of Home.
Merriest Potluck Recipe Contest
Put your Santa hat on. It's time to make a list and check it twice for your garlicky cheese bread that's a little bit naughty and your coffee-rubbed roast that's a whole lot of nice. Spill how you sprinkle red-and-white candies on your chocolate peppermint cheesecake—and don't be shy about the ganache. Even Christmas hams need their little helpers, so share your most caramelized, buttery, salty-sweet veggie sides. If you've got a sleighful of potluck goodies (made with 12 ingredients max) in categories like snacks & apps, soups & salads, merry main dishes, sides to bring and more, send 'em for a chance to win $500!
Weeknight Slow Cooker Recipe Contest
Show us how you get your countertop cook on. Send in your best hands-off recipe that simmers up smiles in 8-plus hours (aim for 12 or fewer ingredients). You know, that pepper-pork chili everyone talks about, or the jerk chicken thighs with carrot-coconut rice. Oh, and the Denver-omelet breakfast casserole that's just as lovely for dinner. Or cozy-night sides like sage-studded creamed corn and apple baked beans. How about that Sunday garlic pot roast that you fold into French bread or wrap into tacos topped with slaw? Maybe you douse your spaghetti with loaded meat sauce straight from the crock. If it's worth waiting for and slow cooked, share with us for a chance to win $500!
