I completed my first daring baker's challenge. It's too early to reveal it so I can't say much except that I am so excited about being a daring baker. I love the concept of being given monthly baking challenges. I'm sure it will help me build on my baking repertoire.

Speaking of baking, I have decided to enter a few choice items in the upcoming Lane County Fair. I have never entered anything in the fair before and I'm a little nervous. I don't care about prizes but I really want to win a ribbon. Nick says that I shouldn't feel pressured to win anything because I've only been cooking for about two years now. However, I'm in it to win. I'm going to be entering my carrot cake, cheesecake, chocolate cake, and cupcakes. And if I don't win anything this year, I will come back with avengence next year. :-)


  1. I love DB Challenges..this is my second one and I will be attempting mine this weekend. Good luck with the fair!

  2. Thank you. I'll (hopefully) get around to posting some pictures of my fair entries.
