Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore is holding a "That's My Momma's Recipe" contest. The grand prize winner will receive an overnight stay in a luxury suite and dinner for two at Explorers Restaurant over the upcoming Mother's Day weekend.

Entries are being accepted through April 30. A panel of judges from the hotel will determine three finalists, and the public will vote for the best recipe on the hotel's Facebook page.

Contest rules are on the hotel's website, but be prepared to submit an essay of 100 words or less about why your mother's recipe is the best.
