While raising children, Denise Meagher, a returning area native, became a published freelance writer, voice over talent and enthusiastic community theatre participant. She loves reading, writing, traveling, time with friends and most of her family and empty-nesting with husband, Ted.
With my own children having been out of high school for nearly a decade and myself obviously longer, I don't know if prom is such a big deal anymore; however, 'back in the day' the words, "Will you go to prom with me?" were the words nearly every girl dreamed about, obsessed over and longed to hear via the boy she had a crush on. With the school gymnasium or commons transformed into a magical place, it was as if for one night, the princesses in all the fairy tales were alive and they were you. And of course the boy who asked you was Prince Charming - well, sometimes.
For the young man, these words were often difficult to voice. Some young men spoke the words confidently, but I have my suspicion they were the exception. Most of the guys were shake-in-their-boots nervous. And there were even some who sent a scout, (i.e. a friend of the girl he liked) to see how the invitation would be received. If the scout returned with a negative report, the young man could save himself the embarrassment and total humiliation and not bother to ask the question at all.
I don't know about you, but there's nothing like the word - CONTEST - to get my competitive juices flowing, the reason I don't gamble! I'm a sucker for them. So, how about you? Think you have what it takes to compete in the kitchen? Enter our cooking contest and see if you can handle the heat.
With WCT's upcoming naughty-but-nice show, The Kitchen Witches, running April 30 - May 16, we're calling all cooks and beckoning all bakers to submit recipes for the segment in the show entitled, Kitchen Quickies. Though it sounds a bit - risque' - we, the cast and crew swear this is legit and for the most part, rated no worse than PG-13.
