We're jumping right into our latest (Not)Contest—our monthly (Not)Recipes iOS app contest—with a mom-approved theme: We want you to show us the best thing your mother (or grandmother, or aunt you love dearly) taught you to cook!

Is it the coffee fingers she'd make for you to snack on? The rice pudding that still makes you feel homesick? A special-occasion "fee-lay" of beef? Share the best of her stash of recipe cards with us. (And then send her a card—Mother's Day cometh!)

Here's how to do it:

  1. Sometime before May 4th, cook something championed by a woman in your life who you love. (Mom? Grandma? Great-grandma? An otherwise-mother? Yes.)
  2. Take a photo of it! Post it to the (Not)Recipes app and tell us how you made it.
  3. Hashtag it #momtest—and click through the hashtag on the app to see what other cooks are submitting.
  4. Share it on social media! The post with the most likes will win an 8-inch Miyabi chef's knife (a favorite in our test kitchen!).

Need a little inspiration? Check out 10 (not)recipes we loved from our last (Not)Contest, Your Best 20-Minute Freestyle Dinner!

What's the best thing your mother taught you to make? Tell us about it in the comments—and then over on the app!
