Recipe Contest Rules
We all have to eat, so why not make it fun. Each month we will feature a different ingredient and ask you to send us your favorite and best recipes that use the selected food item. In September, we want your pumpkin recipes. Think pies, salads, torte, bread, appetizers– if it has pumpkin in it, we want you to send it.
