It’s hard to believe – time again for the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation’s Holiday Cookie Recipe Contest! We thank everyone who entered great recipes last year and hope we will have many contributions of homemade holiday confections again this year.  As you may know, in the past we have had three cookie categories.

To Enter Recipe Contest

1) Contact Leah at 410.282.0261 or leah@dundalkusa.org as soon as possible to let me know what recipe(s) you intend to enter and your categories.  There is no limit for the number of recipes or categories you may enter.

2) Bake 4 dozen or more cookies for the Cookie Tour and judging, and deliver them to the DRC office at 11 Center Place, 1st floor, between now and Friday, November 30th (you can also arrange for us to pick up).

3) Email or drop off a copy of your recipe(s) by Monday, November 28th in order to have your recipe available to share with others on the DRC website and e-newsletter.

4.) Winning bakers will receive a gift card donated from Mars Supermarket and be recognized in the Dundalk Eagle and the Dundalk Patch.

Cookies will be judged on Saturday, December 1st, in addition to other festive family friendly activities at the Historic Dundalk Holiday Hoopla! The day opens with the Holiday Train Garden at the Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum at 12pm. Gather in the Historic Dundalk Village Shopping Center at 4pm for the Dundalk-Eastfield Recreation Council’s Christmas Parade. Immediately following the parade, visit Santa in the Park, and the DRC’s free family-friendly Center Place Street Fair, and then fill your tummy with our Holiday Cookie Tour until 7pm.

Want to bake but don’t feel the need to enter the contest this year? We’d love for you to contribute cookies to our event! We’re planning to distribute over 200 dozen homemade cookies to kids and families for free at the Cookie Tour, so please join our baking brigade.

We look forward to your participation this holiday season! Please feel free to contact Leah with any questions and more information at 410.282.0261 or leah@dundalkusa.org. Warm Holiday Wishes!

I can't help but say this but with all the problems this community faces the DRC and your role in he community, the best you can come up with is a cookie contest. Who the heck wants to cook cookies when they cant find work, buy a home or have to live on the street. Why don't you go to the nursing home on German Hill and visit the patients left there do die alone. Collect clothing for the kids and work on finding shelter for the homeless. I was the president of the Optimist Club and we busted out butts to raise money for the kids of Dundalk and never once saw the DRC. The people in this community need more than a cookie!

"Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville - did not. The Grinch hated Christmas - the whole Christmas season. Now, please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or it could be that his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all... may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. But, whatever the reason, his heart or his shoes, he stood there on Christmas Eve hating the Whos. Staring down from his cave, with a sour grinchy frown, at the warm, lighted windows below in their town. For he knew that every Who down in Whoville beneath was busy now, hanging a holly who wreath. "

Ask the guy I saw the other night sleeping in he Merrit Point Shopping Center, ifhe wants a cookie. I'm sure the DRC's top gun Amy Mentzer who lives in a $350,000 house on Yorkway and her doctor husband are thinking about any of those things, as long as Vontran got his zoning for Seagrams. http://dundalk.patch.com/blog_posts/ethical-questions-raised-regarding-seagrams-and-zoning-hearing By the way Amy where is the new development you said he was going to bring to Dundalk - Target, Lowes, and a new government center. Nothing has changed down there. I call it the way it is, the truth. You two can both sit on Sata's lap and talk about he Who's while the have-nots continue to suffer. Remember it was the Grinch who saved Christmas after it he realized what reality was all about.

Called 911like any good citizen. I hope you are not associated with the east side political group. I have a feeling you might be. I will identify you like I have others. There's a lot of good information I have never blogged on but I'm sure there are those at the top who know who you are so I won't feel bad writing the truth. If you are part of that group they'll have you to thank and I'm sure that will go over real well. I filed four PIA's seeking information on certain facts. I will be busy for quite a while. The word will get out and you may have to answer for it now or later.

Does a child want a cookie or a house to live in with parents and go to school without fear of being shot by someone who might have been bullied? Sleeping? Are you a doctor? I did what was right. He could have had a thousand things that were life threatening. It appeared he might be sleeping or unconscious. Does the man who just lost his job, (thousands at the steel plant) want a job to support his family or a cookie? Do the kids looking for winter coats want a warm jacket or a cookie? Go sit on Santa's lap and maybe he'll give you a cookie from the DRC.

Now what would you expect from from the DRC. A real class act. When they stop dealing with people like you I'll stop writing about them. Like they violate ethics issues you violate the Terms of Use. Like I said a class organization and you are prof of it.

Like they seem to ignore certain ethics issues you violate the Terms of Use. Like I said a class organization and you are prof of it. I could have filled an ethics complaint over one of their members serving on the zoning board. It's not too late.

"I could have filled an ethics complaint over one of their members serving on the zoning board. It's not too late." Were you the little fat kid in school who got his jollies by squealing on the other students?

You must be one of the 70% born without a father. All you do is follow me around. Fat, you ain't even warmup weight.

With spell check you still can't seem to spell the simplest of words, like proof. You spelled it wrong twice! Ha-ha. Honestly, do you wonder why people laugh at you and your attempt at journalism?
Buzzthefuzz December 18, 2012 at 03:34 PM
Buzz, trust me, no one is following you around. How is your wife doing? Girlfriend, boyfriend ( I don't judge)?Hmmm....no one in the room, always so lonely. All you have is your crazy theories. Now that's sad!
