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.

Sunday, May 31, 2009


In a few days, actually 30, 2009 will be half over and my blog will be seven months old. Time flies when your having a good time.

This months giveaway is a copy of Desserts by the Yard by Sherry Yard. Somehow I ended up with two copies of the book so I am giving one away. Please post a comment under this post, with you email, by midnight (eastern) by Sunday, June 14, 2009. On Monday, June 15, 2009 I will post the winner.

Last month I only had 7 comments. Unless I start getting more comments I cannot afford to continue monthly giveaways.

Good morning, Carole!

Hope it's not as dreary in Cleveland as it is in Ann Arbor today. If I didn't have to go to work momentarily, I'd be home baking cookies instead of going out to get rained on ....

Carole, love your blog!! I may not comment every time but I sure do visit frequently. Love the idea of the Key Lime Bundt cake. Anytime I hear Key Lime it makes me want to go back to Key West.

Carol, I love your blog and how it has introduced to so many wonderful food blogs. I've heard great things about Sherry Yard's books and would love to have a chance at winning a copy.

I like how you feature other blogs. I don't have as much time as I would like to search out new blogs. Thanks for the giveaway. It looks like a great book!
