2024 Taste of Home - Weeknight Winners Recipe Contest

General Information

Share your quick entrees, five-ingredient mains and make-ahead meals and you may end up on top.

Do you beat the clock with recipes relying on jarred sauces, frozen veggies or refrigerated dough? Send those half-homemade suppers and any shortcut staples that make work nights simply delicious.

Slow-cooked, air-fried and pressure-cooked dishes count, too, so submit your best. From beef, chicken and pork favorites to fish, seafood and plant-based specialties, any time-saving dish could land you the grand prize!

Judging: The winner of the Contest will be determined by judging all qualifying entrants’ submissions based on the following criteria:
Taste: 25% – Does this recipe taste great with every bite? Does it have mass appeal? Would you want to make this recipe over and over again based on taste alone? Does it contain interesting, yet gratifying flavor combinations?
Visual Appeal: 25% – Does this recipe present beautifully on a plate or in a baking dish? Do your eyes make you want to eat this before you even smell or taste it?
Creativity: 25% – Is the recipe your original idea? Is the recipe reflective of unique twists to ingredient usage? Have you incorporated your personal touch to this recipe?
Crowd Appeal: 25% – Does your recipe appeal to fellow home cooks everywhere? Does the recipe have easy-to-find everyday ingredients and is it easy to make? Does the recipe have a story that will inspire many others to make it?
