What are the special dishes that remind you of the holidays? Maybe it's your family's traditional oyster stuffing that always goes with the Thanksgiving turkey, or the cookies you always make for your children's teachers as a gift. Maybe it's the secret-ingredient crab dip you like to take to a friend's holiday party or the breakfast casserole your family enjoys on Christmas morning.

Whatever reminds you of sharing time with family and friends in November and December, we'd like you to share the recipes with us for our special holiday cookbook, "Savor the Season." The cookbook will be published Nov. 13 in The Post and Courier and will be edited by Ann Thrash, who produced three "Savor the Season" cookbooks in the late 1990s as the newspaper's former food editor.

Here are the particulars:
