Summer is here and the kids in my neighborhood keep knocking on my door asking if I can come out and play. #onceateacheralwaysateacher
Since it’s ninety degrees outside I suggested we stay in and bake.
This what they came up with: Unicorn Poop Cookies! What?
I started out with two helpers and by the end of the afternoon I had a houseful. Our cookies didn’t quite turn out like the video but they sure were colorful and delicious!
Of course I had to make a stop at the library for a picture book on unicorns.
We used the recipe links under the video. Be sure to refrigerate or freeze the dough before creating your poop design. If you forget you could end up with a huge mess! Not that I would know. I’m great at following recipes. <big grin>
Changes are coming to this blog! Get ready to be wowed! I’m working with Wheelhouse to give this site a whole new look. On top of that Muza and I are busy making the final changes to ELLE & BUDDY! If all goes well ELLE & BUDDY will be out in August. Yes…this August! Keep an eye on our Facebook page, Elle and Buddy, for updates.

Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.
Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously--and at great risk--documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope that Lina ultimately survives. Between Shades of Gray is a novel that will steal your breath and capture your heart.
