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.

AUGUST GIVEAWAY

Instead of a cookbook the winner of the August givaway will have the choice of a one (1) year subscription to Bon Appetit Magazine OR a one (1) year subscription to Gourmet Magazine.


From 12:01 AM (eastern) on Saturday, August 1, 2009 until 11:59 PM (eastern) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 leave a comment under this post with your email (I need the email to notify the winner). I will have a random drawing for the winner on Monday, August 17, 2009. You do not have to declare which magazine you want until you are notified that you are the winner. So, you have a couple of weeks to think about it.


Be advised that I will enter the subscription within a couple of days of notification. However, it will take 4 - 6 weeks for the first issue of your magazine to arrive.

Hi Carole:
My hard drive crashed and I lost my saved recipes. (Let this be a lesson to the rest of you cooks.) A subscription would give me inspiration to rebuild!

I have a sentimental attachment to Bon Appetit. It was the only magazine that my grandmother subscribed to, and it always makes me think of her when I leaf through an issue.

My dad subscribed to Gourmet Magazines for many years - from sometime in the 50's till his death a few years ago. He loved it and cooked some great food when I was growing up.

Myself, I prefer Bon Appetit, though I do have a soft spot in my heart for Gourmet. Thanks, dad!
