Holiday Recipe Story Contest

The topic for this contest is: Holiday or Family Recipe Story

Are you cooking something special today? Whatcha eating? Or is it for someone else?

Is this recipe one that you made up? Or is it a family recipe passed down from generations? Or is it something someone outside of your family gave you? What's the story behind this creation?

Often times, when I see online recipes that are preceded by a some kind of super-long story, I quickly scroll down to the bottom! However, which ones of us on FanStory can write an engaging forward that keeps readers from mousing over to that scroll bar?

Creative approaches are welcomed. But contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner.

Entry Fee: $3 member dollars
First Prize: 50% of prize pool
Second Prize: 25% of prize pool
Third Prize: 25% of prize pool

Don't forget to vote in two weeks!

Allez cuisiner!

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 15.00 member dollars. There are 13 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 54.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Saturday, December 3, 2022.
