Awards

It’s no surprise I love to develop recipes! It’s a blast to get in the kitchen and follow my heart, my head and my stomach as I reach for spices, grains, fruits…whatever is available. Sure, there are some disasters, near misses, sure things we will eat again. There are also some WINNERS! If you didn’t know this already, I am a contest junkie. And proud of it. Just in case you want to know more about this little habit of mine check out my blog about being a Contest Junkie here.

For now check out some of my current awards, click on the links, try the recipes and enjoy!

  1. You are AMAZING Ally! I am so impressed with all your wins. I hope to be that caliber some day. As a real newbie in this fun field I really admire you and the fabulous recipes you come up with. I just read about your organization system and am so impressed. I’m going to use some of your ideas. I’m getting to know day by day who are the heavy hitters in this contest ‘game’ so to speak and you are one of them. A few others have shared their organizational systems too. Believe me I need all the help I can get!! Thankyou for your advice, sweet comments and being the great person you are. I am putting you up in my mentor category. There are four or five of you in that category. The more I get to know everyone on these food/contest facebook sites I can see who really seem to have it all together. You are in that class. THANKYOU again Ally! N.

    • NANCY!!!! You, my dear, are a gem and have made me feel soooooooooo elated!! I’m by far not an icon as others like my beloved Merry, but I appreciate being even in the breathing space w/these folks!! One thing about this entire area is that we share and support each other…winning is not just for the few, but the many, and we all learn from each other…my philosophy in life, my sweet Nancy, is that if I help make others ‘good’ then I’m ‘good’…amazing what comes w/o even trying! So, my beautiful friend, thank YOU for your support, your time in reading this post and, yep, I’m there for you and I know you for me!! xox ~~ally
