Mom's New Blog

Thanks to everybody for giving Mom some hugs. She was prepared for a bad meeting with her bosses, but it went way worse than she had planned and it threw her off guard. All of your hugs helped and of course hugs from me, Sasha, Gunnar and Dad helped a lot, too.
A few weeks ago Mom started a new blog. It was something she had been thinking of doing, but was a little nervous about doing. After being a devoted reader to Joey & Tanner's Mom's blog, Dorry's Mom's Blog and Sparky & Patches' Mom's blog she decided since they make it look easy, she could do it, too! - she hopes. She wanted to do her's a little different though and she decided only to do a weekly recipe so she doesn't stress out. What she does is talks about a gadget and does a review on it (so far they're all positive reviews because she's starting off with some of her favorite gadgets) and then she gives a recipe that you can make using the gadget. She has a really yummy cookie recipe for this week's post, but she keeps forgetting to take the recipe card with her to copy. She pretty much has it memorized because she loves the cookies, but she doesn't want to leave anything out. Check her blog tomorrow for that recipe (if she remembers to take it tomorrow). She also invites anybody else to do a guest post if you would like to review a gadget and share a recipe. Or, if you want to send her a gadget to do a review on, you could do that, too. Just email her at HilarysDesigns(at)yahoo(dot)com for more info on doing either of those.
I guess I should give you the address. It is She's using the Bravenet blog and isn't too impressed with it so far, but she uses Bravenet for her art website and she thought if she was forced to log in to Bravenet weekly, she might update her art stuff. So far that hasn't happened, but it might. So go over and check out her stuff. The macaroni salad is very yummy! It has bacon in it!!! She also has a breakfast pizza recipe to share soon that has bacon (that's what I helped with the other night)! You'd think we eat a lot of bacon around here. That reminds me, she also has a recipe for bacon wrapped tater tots that are great for superbowl parties and any other kind of party. I'll have to remind her to share that one, too cuz it has bacon AND cheese!! I'm not sure what gadget she'll review with that recipe though. Maybe a toothpick or BACON! That's a cooking gadget isn't it? She could reiew our sucky oven!! That's the only appliance in the new house that mom hates.
So go check out her posts so far and then on Friday check out her cookie recipe. It's not for dogs, but your humans will all love them lots! Dad blames the weight he gained after he quit smoking on those cookies. Grandma told Mom she has to make some for her to take to work so she can take credit for them. Mom loves making them so she said sure. I'm also going to try to start doing Artsy Fartsy Friday again tomorrow. Lots of cool posts on Friday!
All this talk about bacon is making me hungry! I'm going to go see if any of us dropped and food this morning after breakfast. I hope I find some of Gunnar's food. That stuff is really yummy! Mom hates it because it stinks but after his bladder infection he has to be on a special ph level of food so he doesn't get sick again. If I could figure out how to run a camera without those fancy thumbs, I'd show you pictures of Mom feeding Gunnar. She makes lots of funny faces. She says changing his litterbox doesn't smell half as bad as that food. we all think the food smells good and tastes really good though. I really need to stop talking about food! I hope Mom comes home early to feed us!!!

Congrats to your mom and her blog! I think blogging is fun but mom apparently thinks its to much work! Imagine. (but she does really love kitchen gadgets.)

First of all, congrats on taking the big step on the new blog!! My mom can't cook to save her life.. and the food she cooks is barely edible. I think I am the only one in the house that is brave enough to sample her cooking sometimes, so I hope she can learn some tips from your mom's blog!
Sorry to hear about your mom's bosses giving her a hard time. Sigh.. can you give her a kiss from me to make it better?
Cheer up, it's the weekend!!
