Submit Your Recipe to the Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Our editors want to see your recipes! For a chance to be published in one of our magazines, books or websites, submit your favorite dishes in the following categories (and be sure to check back often as the categories update frequently):

  • Baked Food Gifts: Do you pack up spiced snickerdoodles for the postman or wrap a sweet, nutty cranberry loaf for your neighbor? Send us the recipe!
  • Slow Cooker Sweets: Think outside the cake mix box with desserts like cinnamon cheesecake, blackberry coffee cake and pies baked right on your countertop. If it's from scratch and slow-cooked, we're saving room.
  • Fall Brunch Recipes: Crisp mornings call for cranberry challah French toast, maple pull-apart bread, ratatouille quiche and sweet potato fritters. And what gets an egg on top? How about root veggie hash or Tater Tot breakfast pizza? Your recipe's worth waking up for!
  • Skinny Comfort Foods: How do you make your favorite foods healthier? We're talkin' zucchini lasagna, spaghetti squash carbonara and pizza with cauliflower crust. Send side dishes, too.
