Prize Tested Recipes

Every year, thousands of Better Homes and Gardens readers enter our monthly Prize Tested Recipes challenges, as well as our Annual Recipe Challenge. Now you can cook your way through all of the winning recipes with this collection of prize tested recipes. There's something for everyone and for every meal occasion, from breakfast and dinner to snacks and holidays. As a bonus, you can also read profiles of recent winners to learn their cooking tricks and tips. You'll learn about distinctive flavors and time-saving techniques that real home cooks put together to create delicious, nutritious, family-pleasing food. Recipe winners also took part in a question and answer session to uncover their recipe inspiration, what foods they always keep in the pantry so they can whip up dinner any night, and more so you can try their techniques in your own kitchen.
