    Credit goes to Caroline Grooms from Dickinson, North Dakota - Blue ribbon winner of the 2003 Country Woman Cooking Contest!

    Recipe #84163

    Another pie recipe that won first place in a contest. This is my father and brothers' first choice in a pie at the holidays. It's so good, you'll find yourself getting up in the middle of the night to sneak another piece!

    Recipe #126966

    A fine example of Southwestern cooking, these spicy pork medallions are cooled by the fruitiness of peaches. Adjust the spicy seasonings to your taste. Was the overall winner in the first 2002 "Ready, Set, Cook" Challenge here at Recipezaar!

    This recipe won third place in the Country Woman's contest. Can also divide recipe in half and place in bread machine on dough cycle, then shape by hand. They are so good!

    Recipe #94961

    This recipe, taken from a 1988 Ladies' Home Journal, won me a blue ribbon at the county fair when I was a teenager.

    Recipe #173754

    This great recipe by John Winkler of San Pedro, California, was a finalist in the 1997 California Strawberry Festival's Berry Off Cooking Contest.

    Found this in Good Housekeeping Magazine, May, 2006. From Lindell Hughes of Neosho, Missouri. She made this as a young girl for a 4-H competition and her recipe eventually won a prize at the state fair. It is made in a 13" X 9" glass or ceramic baking dish. Cooling and chilling time not included in estimates nor is the extra hour in the oven after baking.

    Our community recently had an old fashioned Pie Contest and this is the winning pie by Cindy Tymkiw. It looks easy and the raves about it could be heard miles away. Cindy says "Hope you enjoy! Even if you count your calories this is very hard to resist."

    Recipe #21201

    Heather B used this recipe to win a blue ribbon at the Juniata County Fair. The original is published on the Nestle site which uses those semi sweets. Heather used Hershey s instead to bring in that ribbon. This is the correct recipe verified off the Nestle site [there was a problem with the original I posted]

    Recipe #139368

    This is my very own recipe that I have won 3 chili cook-offs with! PERFECT for the Super Bowl coming up!!!!

    Recipe #50732

    I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned account recipe adoption. This is a delicious pie with an easy, no fuss crust. The crust is tender and flaky at the same time and the flavor is just the perfect amount of sweetness! Try it and you'll see why it is a Festival winning apple pie! 10/12/04, Edited: cooking time/temperature

    Recipe #8424

    This recipe won the 1996 Grand Prize in the Prize Tested Recipes contest in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Delicious! A French recipe!

    Recipe #38405

    I have been making this at Christmas for a couple of years now. I don't remember where I found the recipe but I definitely give credit to whose ever it was originally. I gave it to a friend and she made it, entered it in a candy contest and won first prize. It is a great alternative for someone with a peanut allergy.

    Recipe #204687

    I entered this bundt cake of mine this past weekend into a baking contest at our local gourmet food store. It took home 2nd place--plus the bakery is going to start making it along side of their other "gourmet" cakes!! I am so excited--thought I would share it with everyone!

    I love this! This recipe was a $2,000.00 winner in the 38th Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1998. I wasn't sure how my co-workers would like it but it was gone before 11am when I took it to work. Such a great blend of flavors. Of course you could use your own favorite pie crust recipe if you've got a knack with crust. I've included the 1/2 hour cooling time in the prep time.

    Recipe #53565

    I recently inherited my Great Aunt's recipe collection. This is a recipe from her recipe box that she clipped out of the Chicago Tribune. It had won the "$5 Favorite Recipe prize." From the splatters on the clipping, I imagine my Aunt enjoyed this one. These days,I might try browning the meat in a little olive oil instead of the bacon drippings. Despite the name, I doubt this is a traditional Polynesian dish, but rather is one inspired by Polynesian cuisine.

    The orange extract is optional, but it makes an ice complement to the flavor of the cake. Another from my "Forgotten Recipes" cookbook. Sounds good!

    Recipe #124279

    This is no ordinary upside-down cake with fruit! It is an ancient recipe from my beloved granny who died in '73. It won me the top prize in a local cake recipe competition a few years ago, and earned me, oh joy, a new mixer plus attachments! Easy, delicious, really worth trying. I apologize for the metric measures, but I'm in South Africa and this one I can't readily change to Imperial. Please read through, for as easy as the cake is to make, it is made in 2 stages, and the cake tin should be well prepared. The topping is rich and delicious, the cake is simple -- otherwise it would be too rich.

    Recipe #124996

    This recipe won first place in a pie baking contest. It's delicious!

    Recipe #126957

    A fellow Arkansan's winning recipe. Ms. B Deason won the State Chicken Contest, now on to Nationals. This sounds really tasty and I plan on trying it soon - the picture in the paper is gorgeous. Maybe someone will beat me to it and share the results.
