Kentucky Living is cooking! And we need your help to bring our recipe collection to life.
The launch of the new KentuckyLiving.com includes the largest free online database of authentic Kentucky recipes collected over several decades.
Kentucky Living wants to see your original photos of any of the recipes in our KentuckyLiving.com Recipe collection.
Just choose a recipe that does not already have a photo (like the one below), and submit a photo of the finished dish.
From those submissions through April 17, Kentucky Living is choosing weekly winners who will receive a copy of the book Kentucky Cooks, Recipes from Kentucky Living by Linda Allison-Lewis.
Winners of the Calling ALL Cooks contest include Valerie Dieling of Eddyville, Russell Morris of Mayfield, Angela Robinson of Elizabethtown, and Kristy Williams of Burkesville who submitted a photo of her Chocolate Pudding Cake from the KentuckyLiving.com collection.
“Baking is a family event in our home,” Williams said. “My daughter, Macey, loves to help crack the eggs, open butter, and pour ingredients in. My husband, Keaton, is the official taste tester and my mom, Peggy, comes to help wash dishes!
Submit your photo to either firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on Kentucky Living’s Facebook page. You’ll help in the preservation of many great Kentucky recipes. And visit Kentucky Living‘s Facebook page for daily suggestions of recipes to make.
Fueled by the creative team behind Kentucky Living magazine, the most widely circulated publication in the commonwealth, KentuckyLiving.com launched on February 1. Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles joined Kentucky Living’s editorial team and veteran columnists Byron Crawford, Sarah Fritschner, and Dave Shuffett to celebrate the launch. The new website features broad-based Kentucky articles, with special attention to travel, events, unique experiences, and the Kentucky recipes collection, which dates back to the late 1940s.
“I’m so excited that now there is now a website you can go to, to find what’s best about Kentucky,” Quarles said, noting that Kentucky Living is designated a Kentucky Proud product by the Agriculture Department. “Kentucky Living talks about our heritage, our tradition, and our rural roots, but also connects us to what’s going on around the state.”
“If you love Kentucky, you will love KentuckyLiving.com,” said Joe Arnold, Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives Vice-President of Strategic Communications. “Kentuckians can rely on KentuckyLiving.com for enriching their daily lives and learning new things about our great state.”
Kentucky Living is a product of the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives (KAEC) which serves local, consumer-owned electric distribution utilities across Kentucky.
