A year ago we won Best Pie in the Cove at the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center’s Blue Ribbon County Fair, so, I was a little excited about entering the fair this fall. Two of our recipes won ribbons, a third place finish in the pound cake division and surprisingly, a second place finish in the yeast bread category. I experimented on a Blueberry Almond Pound Cake for a year and my church is probably happy the fair is over because I must have brought it a half a dozen times to various potlucks. They’d ask, “What version is this?”
The Rosemary Feta Cheese Bread was a take off from a recipe in Southern Living. Originally it was made as a loaf of French bread but rules said I had to put it in a loaf pan so I made some more modifications. I wish I could have tasted every entry and picked the brains of the winners.
So, while we are on food… at the prompting of several guests, I took Mom to see Julie, Julia. Actually it was more along the lines of I can’t believe you haven’t seen this movie. What a wonderful film. Meryl Streep is just the absolute best. Walked out of the show and wanted to do some serious cooking. Thank you Julie Powell for perserverance. Mizkathleen
