Collin County Clerks Crock-Pot Cook-Off

Had a blast on Wednesday judging the Collin County clerks’ crock-pot cook-off.  Judges Miskel, McCraw, and Willis tasted 12 fabulous dishes and had the difficult task of choosing the best one.  Everything was delicious, and the event was great fun.  Thank you to the clerks for inviting us!
