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.

I used Random.Org to pick the winning number. There were 65 posts and the winning number was number 20.

Beth Jackson Klosterbaur has thewinning number. I have contacted Beth and will send her the certificate as soon as she answers my email.

For those of you who didn't win try Penzeys (in person or at www.penzeys.com). They do have, I think, the best spices, herbs and seasonings.
