Every year our county 4 H has 2 cooking contests. One is a Cookie and Bread contest and the other an Egg And Dairy Contest. We try to enter both of these contests every year. It gives the children an opportunity to learn new skills and try out some new recipes. Our competition was last Monday.
Usually the children make 2 items to enter, but we were more pressed for time this year and the mixer stopped working so they only made one entry each, except for Christian who started baking on Saturday (I wish the others had followed his example) and had time to make two entries.
Alex made cinnamon rolls and won 3rd place in the senior yeast specialty.
Nick made doughnuts and got a participation ribbon. That was the first time we have ever attempted homemade doughnuts.
Anthony made Chocolate Chip Cookies and got a participation ribbon in the junior drop cookie category.
Christian made what we call Crownies (a bar chocolate chip cookie) and won first place in junior bar cookies. He also made Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and won first in the junior muffin category.
Lily made Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins (from a mix) and won 2 nd place in the Cloverbud Muffin category.
Emmie made Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins (from a mix) and won 1st place in the Cloverbud Muffin Category.
