One of my sweet facebook friends Kathy posted a picture of these cute little mice, that she made with her Grandchildren. I asked her how she made them knowing that my two darlings would really enjoy making them. Kathy is one of the lovely people I have met through the blogs facebook page she's an inspiring upbeat and hard working lady, who lives on a farm in Kentucky. She did a guest post for Chow and Chatter once about it, its fun at times to do this and share non bloggers stories.
- one small jar of Maraschino Cherries
- a packet of dark chocolate drops
- a little icing for the eyes
- a pack of slivered almonds
- cute little helpers
- melt the chocolate in a stainless steel bowl over hot water on the stove
- dip the cherries, add a chocolate drop or Hershey's kiss for the nose and carefully place two almonds for the ears
- allow to set on baking paper in the fridge then paint little eyes onto them
I was contacted by a book publisher recently it really was an honor I submitted a cookbook proposal -
Bring the world to your kitchen, explore new spices, recipes and cuisine from around the globe. The explorers kitchen is a book written by Rebecca Subbiah a Registered dietitian, food blogger and world traveler. Rebecca is a Brit married to an Indian and has a passion for cooking new healthy global dishes. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring by learning from other countries and letting global flavors influence our cooking we add pizazz to our food. Through travel we are able to expand our taste buds and learn new methods of cooking. This book hopes to expand your cooking repertoire and infuse fun and adventure in the kitchen.
Also with stories it hopes to inspire you to learn recipes as you travel. Why not take a cooking class when abroad, ask locals for tips or bring a few spices home from local bazaars and markets. By getting back to the basics of cooking and also including our children in the kitchen we take back our health a bite at a time and have fun in the process.
Unfortunately it wasn't accepted saying they had similar books. Its funny I hadn't really thought about a book, but it really is every food bloggers dream. As I waited over the weeks for an answer I dreamed a little too, it was hard that it didn't work out and I still feel a little sad. But trying always counts. Who knows maybe another chance will come.
I share this to be real and share my life with its ups and downs.
