This year’s Holiday Treat contest could not have happened without the help of a long list of volunteer bakers and judges.
These Twitter folks, fellow food writers and bloggers tested 20 recipes, tasted the entries and chose the winners last week. I could not have pulled off this contest without their help.
And so, thanks to Matt Lardie of eatwritego, Felice Bogus, Margalit Mermelstein, Kristen Baughman of Gadaboutfood, Jill Warren Lucas of The Indy, Meghan Prichard of nestmeg.com, Johanna Kramer of Durham Foodie, Kim Alexander of Triangle Localista, Chana Lynn of Raleigh What’s Up, Claire Cusick aka @TheDoughEater, Gabrielle of @nutellaisevil, Elliot Acosta of Eat Raleigh blog, Colleen Minton of Terra Vita Foodie Leigh Powell Hines of Hines Sight blog, Ashley Chaifetz of Smashed Goods, Alex Graddy-Reed aka @pumpkinpants, Lucy Martinez, Matthew Glassman aka @burgeoningbaker, and Kathleen and Tom of Life with the Lushers.
Here is a list of the winning recipes and the readers who submitted them. You will be thanking them too when you taste their recipes. (There are links to all the recipes below.)
