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.

Hey Carole, So glad to hear you are starting to feel better. I'm sure it has been a very tough year for you and it's good to hear things are looking up for 2011.

I always clean my spice cabinet out once a year and it is time to do so. Winning new spices would be great!

Hi Carole,
We haven't talked in a long time, but I do check out Cybercook's Corner from time to time. I've had my fingers crossed for you. Glad you're feeling better. I just looked up Penzey's and planned a trip to the east end of the world sometime soon--would love to have a gift certificate.
