Competition – copy of Tin Can Cook


It’s ages since I run the last competition and I’ve been meaning to set this one up for a while. I’ve been distracted by doing lots of work to improve the way Google can find the blog. I enjoy writing and blahing onto you here, but not so much all the other things I should really do. So lots to catch up on and it’s taking a long time, and will continue to do so for a considerable time yet.

Other Prizes

A big order arrived today of slow cookers, popcorn makers and stick blenders. They’ll be competition goodies over the next few months. And I’ve still got that dehydrator. Saving that one for the preserving time of year
