10th Anniversary Easy Home Cooking Contest

This contest is now closed.  Thank you to everybody who entered.  You can now vote for your favourite recipe until November 21.  

In celebration of our 10th Anniversary, we are launching the Easy Home Cooking Recipe Contest.  Canadians are asked to submit their favourite family recipes that feature Canadian ingredients and that support making home cooking and food preparation easier.  Do you have great recipes for using leftovers? Do you cook once and eat twice? What are you favourite freezer recipes?  Or maybe you use your slow cooker or pressure cooker so that even the busiest evening can end in a home cooked meal.  One winning recipe from each province and region will be declared the "easy home cooking" champion!
