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.

While there are 1000's of food blogs that post recipes this blog will review other cooking blogs.
