Fear and Baking in North Texas

SOOOOO, here's the thing.  I saw a contest last night that I thought I might like to enter.  I threw a couple of ideas around in my head and then decided this all sounds very daunting and scary.  Then I got online today and I had a wall post from a friend informing me of another contest.  I read over the rules and thought "this sounds like fun, I could do that" but then ... the daunting and the scary came back.

Someone I knew way back when use to say that if something happens 3 times in a day it's a sign.  Well, I don't know about that but twice in 12 hours sure felt like one.

Here are the big questions:
  1. Am I good enough?
  2. Does it really matter if I'm good enough?
  3. Whether or not I'm good enough .... am I BRAVE enough?
Hubby says "nothing to lose but a few dollars in ingredients, right?  everything to gain."  There's slightly more than that.  There's time.  There's pride.  HA!  I guess that's all really, a few dollars in ingredients, time and pride.  I think that last one is the scariest.  He even offered to be my "kitchen bitch" and my taste testing victim.

Maybe I should just dive right in.  Start baking with these contests in mind.  Start creating.  Just .... jump.
