About Me

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.

I have never asked my readers for a favor and I never will unless it is important.

One of my great pleasures is corresponding with our troops in far away places. It brings me great joy to read my cards and letters from thesee people.

One of the young women I corresponded with has returned home from Iraq to Oklahoma. We sitll, and always will, exchange letters.

She sent me a note last night from her requesting my help. There are two young women who have recently been deployed to Iraq. Both are very homesick and both are very scared. She asked if I knew some people who would send cards, notes and/or letters. Both are on the same base and both have the same APO. So if you have a few minutes and a first class stamp(s) could you please send one or both of these gals a few kind words.

Thanks in advance if you can help.
