When my family gathers to visit and feast on Thanksgiving and Christmas, Grandmaís baked corn is always on the menu. As each new generation steps into the kitchen, her recipe is handed down. The cherished recipe card is wrinkled, and splattered. But itís part of my familyís tradition. We love Grandmaís baked corn because itís delicious and nostalgic. The Holidays wouldnít be the same without it.

Through My Kitchen Window wants to know what your favorite holiday hand-me-down recipe is, so we are having a recipe contest!

To enter:

Send us your favorite holiday recipe that was handed down through the generations. Include a legibly written or typed recipe and short note about why your recipe is special to you. Pictures are optional, but always beneficial.

Keep in mind that we cannot accept published recipes. For example, if your favorite recipe is from a Taste of Home cookbook, you must alter the ingredients and cooking instructions for it to be eligible. You probably already have your own special way of making it. Just make those changes in the recipe.


One entry per person.

Entry deadline is November 13, 2012.
