Does anyone out there know the best way to get a book published? I have read the books on how to submit work to publishing companies and to literary agents. I have been trying for two years for someone to take an interest in my work. Maybe it is not good enough, but I feel like if I am not famous or already published they do not want to work with me. I think I might post a snippet of one of my books to get some advice from my readers! So, stay tuned. Oh, and of course my books star Jenny!

My little Jenny has not been feeling very well. Tomorrow is the Super Bowl, Jenny, would you like a snack?
I was looking through the recipe binder and came across this recipe from Bunny Roo Beagle. These looks good.
We will give these a try.
Here are the ingredients the recipe calls for.
Mix all ingredients together to form a dough.
Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet.
Smash down with a fork.
Bake for 20 minutes.
"I always have to wait."
Let cool before serving...or blow on it and give it to her anyway.
"Yes, I like that idea!"
Here is a little piece to try.
For the full recipe, check out the Bunny Roo Beagle website and get the recipe for
Harvest Oat and Apple Cookies!

This is all the medicine that Jenny has to take these days.
"I don't like to take medicine."
I know, Jenny.
It has been a struggle trying to get her to take it. I tried putting it in cheese, peanut butter, turkey, etc. She won't even eat those foods now because she associates them with medicine. A lady I work with heard me talk about this problem and one day she brought me a package of these, Greenies Pill Pockets. Wasn't that sweet? Well, I am so thankful for that kind gesture because now Jenny will take her medicine. They come in all different flavors. We have tried peanut butter, duck and pea, chicken, and smoked hickory. She likes them all. The duck ones don't smell too great to me, but the others don't smell too bad. I guess they mask the medicine smell so I am thankful. Anyway, if you have a doggie who has to take lots of pills and doesn't like to take them...you might want to give these a try!
See she loves them!

Here are a few pictures of Jenny enjoying her Christmas!
Merry Christmas Everyone!!
"Hmm...these smell like they belong to me."
"What do you mean, wait?!"
"Let me see if I can get it."
"I can't get it."
"Ooooh, I do like these!"
"It's sad when all that is left is wrapping paper."

Jenny has been sick these past few weeks, so
we haven't been baking. She is slowly improving, but
has to be on lots of medicine. She is having heart problems.
So, I am thankful this year to have her feeling better. This is a
picture of her at grandma and grandpa's in 2011 (she's allowed on the couch there). She is getting ready for her Thanksgiving nap!
Here is Jenny this year with her bed in the kitchen so she can watch me cook for Thanksgiving. Her meal was chicken and rice with some green beans. She was sad she didn't get what we were having. Did you enjoy your meal, Jenny?
"It was tasty, but would have liked some noodles and mashed potatoes!"

That's right, Jenny. It's almost Halloween!
"I know, I was hoping I would get some treats."
Of course, what's Halloween without treats?!
Let's make Halloween cookies.
All we have to do is mix some pumpkin, flour, an egg, water, and a pinch of salt to make our dough.
"Smells super tasty."
Then roll out and cut into shapes. I'm using Halloween shapes.
Don't they look cute?
"I'd rather find out how they taste."
They have to bake for 30 minutes.
How about we think about past Halloweens while we wait?
"If that's what you want to do...I'm watchin' the oven."
Here's a picture of a spooked Jenny a few years ago.
Here is another picture from 2010.
Sticking your tongue out at me because I was
trying to put a witch hat on your head.
Here is a picture of you in 2011 with your stuffed ghost.
Here you are in the doorway last year. (2012)
Here are this year's pumpkins. Jenny was pleased
that we chose a Scooby Doo theme.
I love your collar. I guess that's your costume
since you won't let me dress you up.
OK, it's time. They should be cool now.
Trick or Treat...treat of course.
Here is the recipe
1 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup pumpkin
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together (add enough water to form a dough). Roll out dough and cut into shapes. Place on a lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins. Cool and enjoy.

It's Fall! I love fall. I love the smells, the colors, the weather, and especially the food...pumpkin! I think Jenny agrees so we are going to make these yummy Pumpkin Fall Treats.
"Smells good in here."
"Sniff, sniff, sniff...yep, I smell treats!"
First we have to mix all the wet ingredients.
Then mix in the dry ingredients until a dough forms.
Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes.
I think I'll do hearts and bones.
"I do love bones!"
Place on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
"I knew I'd have to wait."
Jenny, your fall collar goes nice with the color of your fur.
"I'm trying to concentrate here."
"This seems to be taking forever...can't you speed it up?"
"I'm getting tired. Are they done yet?"
They're done, but they are cooling. Do you like the picture I made?
"I would like it better if it was in my mouth!"
Here you go, you can have a piece of one.
"Why just a piece?"
"Slurp! That was very tasty."
"I need another piece, however, I would prefer a whole one."
Here is the recipe:
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup pumpkin
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together. Roll out dough 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Let cool and serve. Store in an airtight container.
