Readers, send us your best holiday recipes

Every year, we reach out to our readers and ask for holiday recipes, some of which get featured in our special Holiday Issue of Taste. For a decade-plus, it was Christmas cookies. Last year, it was any holiday dessert. And this year, we're opening it up even further in the hopes of creating some new traditions.

Send us any holiday recipe that means something to you — be it a dinner entree, a standby appetizer or a beloved dessert — and along with the recipe send a note (no longer than 200 words, please) about why it's so meaningful. We'll pick some of these to anchor our Holiday Issue, which runs the first week of December (that means we typically don't choose Thanksgiving-specific recipes).

We look forward to seeing what's on your holiday table.

How to submit your recipes

Send your recipe submissions for the Tampa Bay Times holiday desserts issue by Sept. 18. Mail to Tampa Bay Times, Taste Holiday Recipes, 490 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701 or email to features@tampabay.com and put HOLIDAY RECIPES in the subject line. For all submissions, include your full name, city of residence and a phone number and/or email address in case we have questions. (Your phone number and email will not be published.)
