But I got the answer to readers' questions about where to find the nuts and the peanut butter cookie dough in the $1 million winning recipe. You asked me back in April when I was writing about the Bake-Off so I hope you are checking back for the answers
Get the nuts at Marc's and sometimes at Office Max. (I erred earlier when I said Staples).
The peanut butter cookie dough can be found at "some Giant Eagle stores", according to Pillsbury.
I'll be putting on my travel hat Sunday and flying to Paris on the new overnight Continental flight from Cleveland. I've also just learned how to add my photos to this blog, so stay tuned here for a whirlwind visit of the Loire region of France. It all depends, of course, on my being able to access the internet from the hotels where my press group will be staying - a different one every night. The stories I'll be gathering there will appear in upcoming Sunday travel sections to help you plan your own visits to France, now that we can get there on the no-fuss flights from Cleveland.
Let me hear your comments at the end of this blog about the France trip or whatever I write about here. Your feedback helps me include things that interest you.
