Well, I'm back at it again and planning my baking strategy for this week. I have three items that I plan to bake and enter, but I'm giving myself a break if all the recipes don't turn out as well as planned, or if my baking time gets cut short. (Let's see, two night meetings, piano, soccer, and a Very Important Birthday, all this week).
I'm going to go bold and enter the pie category with the best pie I baked this year - PieLab's Apple Cheddar Pie:

|Ginger Cookies with Raspberry Jam. Lucy Mercer/A Cook and Her Books|
|Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake by Lucy Mercer/A Cook and Her Books|
Three stellar recipes, three shots at blue ribbon glory. I think I might be able to make it. My family may be eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for supper, but sometimes, sacrifices must be made. I just noticed that there's a cheesecake category, and I make a mean cheesecake....
How about you - have you caught blue ribbon fever? Do you plan to visit a state fair this fall?
