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.


  1. Just do it! Look forward to what you will come up with!

  2. Is it your first contest? Just do it! :)

  3. Yes, this would be my first. Eek! =D
