About Me

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.

HAPPY FEBRUARY

Welcome, February. Although we have a lot of snow and snow we are safe and warm. Not so our friends and/or family in KY and many other states.




In honor of Valentines Day I am giving away a copy of BakeWise by Shirley Corriher. Simply leave a comment between now and Feb. 13, 2008. One entry per person, please. On Feb. 14, 2009 I will draw the winner





Just to let you all know I am not kidding about the snow here is my puppy. Velcro, playing in 2 feet of the stuff.



Beginning tomorrow I will start posting the blogs of CCC members.

Lots of snow here too! Charlie has a racetrack shoveled in the snow because it's too deep for him.

Carole, thanks for the Bakewise giveaway. I noticed that several members of CCC mentioned that it was on the gift wish lists - I had never heard of it and took it out at the library. It's a keeper! Here's hoping!
Your blog is wonderful and I'm really looking forward to the CCC bloggers list/review.
You have always been a rock of support to everyone at CCC - keep up the great job!
