I once entered a county fair bake off on a whim and was awarded the rosette (best of show) for my troubles.
Was a yogurt and black pepper quick bread baked for a family gathering and having received so many complements I thought why not try.
My SIL (a regular winner at said contest) did not speak to me for many moons lol.
If I had known that would happen would have entered years before lol!!!!
Anyone else (enter a culinary contest, not PO a family member) want to share?
