If you've always wanted to put your baking skills to the test, we have good news.

After going on hiatus for 2 years, one of America's biggest baking contests is starting up again, and the competition looks like it will be fiercer than ever before.

Since the first Pillsbury Bake-Off was held in 1949, bakers from across the country have sent in their recipes and competed in the final round bake-off to prove that their creation deserves the cash prize.

The format has changed a lot over years, but the main idea of a baking competition focused on Pillsbury products has stayed constant. This year Pillsbury will be partnering with the Food Network, so you could come face to face with some celebrity chefs if you make it to the finals.

More details are coming in September, but the contest's web page says they're looking for "the best made-at-home recipes, and the heartfelt, funny, crazy, family stories behind them!”

What kind of recipes have won in the past? A lot of your holiday favorites, it turns out.
