About Me

My photo
Cleveland, Ohio, United States
I am a retired teacher with time on my hands. I love to cook and bake. For the past eight years my hobby has been entering recipe contests. I have done very well and have been to several cook/bake offs although I have never won a grand prize. The ititials of my blog CCC are the same as the site where I get contest information, Cooking Contest Central (CCC). While there are 1000's of food blogs that post recipes this blog will review other cooking blogs.

GIVEAWAY


Tojump start my new blog I am having a cookbook givaway. I have an extra copy of Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To yours. It is new but it does have a remainder mark on the bottom of the pages.

In my opinion, this is the best cookbook ever written. There is not a single recipe in the book that I would not make. There is an entire blog, Tuesdaya with Dorie, devoted to this blog. (I will review the blog after the first of the year).

To be eligible for the drawing leave a comment with your name and email before 11:59 Eastern on December 31, 2008. I will pick a random winner on 1/3/09 and contact you to get shipping information. I will also post the winner here.

Carole your blog is wonderful. Congratulations. I love to cook but baking is my passion. I am a contester like you although not as successful as you have been. I would love to win Dorie's fabulous cookbook. Maybe it will jump start 2009 for me with many more wins to follow. Good luck.

Good luck on your new blog! That cookbook looks great and I'm shocked that I don't already have it (considering I have more cookbooks than brains!) I'd love to throw my hat in the ring for a chance to win it. Thanks for a great giveaway and Happy New Year!
