I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life I have ever been tempted to imbibe in a glass of wine at 9:00 a.m..
Let's just say, it took a
hundred few takes.
I had so many issues with my camera, I had to resort to consulting the owner's manual. Now THAT is serious.
My other issue was with my dog barking. She would be lying there calm as can be or snoozing, and about 30 seconds in, she would start barking. I tried giving her a barbeque chewy rawhide stick outside, and she just brought it back to the door, dropped it, and continued barking. It brought back to mind when my five kids were small and the phone would ring. They would come from every corner crying, whining, tattling, hungry, thirsty, and fighting. As soon as the call would end, they would go back to being little angels.
Can I hear an amen from the other moms out there? I can't be the only one :\
So I decided to outsmart my dog Nellie (that's right - matching wits with a little spaniel...). She is a serious chow hound, so I took a handful of her kibble and tossed it off the deck hoping she would consider it to be a doggie scavenger hunt. And she did - for about three minutes.
Close but no cigar.
Now my kids think Nellie is terribly spoiled and pampered by me.
And no, she is absolutely NOT eating creme brulee in the photo.
But, it needed to be quiet and I had to take tough measures with my "6th child". It was out to the garage with her, where she gave her vocal chords a good workout. Happily, it wasn't heard on the video!
And so with the house quiet at last, I made this video tutorial -
PAINTING ON COOKIES!
Let me know what you think - suggestions for making it better or new subjects you would like to learn about.
I also embellished the painted cookies with a Celtic knot border - I love the way it has a three dimensional look!
Nellie and I hope you enjoy the video tutorial, and give painting on cookies a try!
