2023 Taste of Home - Make Ahead Magic

General Information

Hey, who couldn’t use more time as the holidays ramp up?

We want your make-ahead dishes that no one would guess were prepped early. We’re talkin’ that sage and corn casserole that brings everybody back for seconds or the umami gravy that’s been chilling in your freezer for a few weeks.

Do-early desserts like apple cider pie and plum galette get high marks, too. And don’t forget weeknight faves like sweet potato curry or sheet-pan Swedish meatballs. Submit your most marvelous make-ahead dishes and you could win big!

Judging: The winner of the Contest will be determined by judging all qualifying entrants’ submissions based on the following criteria:
– Taste: 25%
– Visual Appeal: 25%
– Creativity: 25%
– Crowd Appeal: 25%

All entries will be judged using the criteria stated above.  In the event of a tie, the highest scoring entry in the Creativity category will be the winner.  All judging will be accomplished by a panel of Taste of Home food experts. Decision of the judges is final and binding on all matters relating to this Contest.
