French macaron cookies for Christmas

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, December 20, 2013,

French Macarons-Cookies with buttercream filling.

The ingredients are basic – however real care in measuring and in the technique makes the difference between success and failure with these very popular cookies sandwiched in butter cream.

Start by preparing your pans. You will need to create paper templates. Draw a series of 1.5” circles across a sheet of paper 8.5” x 14". This will then be placed under a sheet of parchment paper that has been cut to fit four baking sheets. Use th...

The Night Before Christmas
---By Clement C. Moore
1. Twas (It was ) the night before Christmas,
when all through the house,
not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.
2. The stockings were hung
by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas
soon would be there.
3. The children were nestled
all snug in their beds,
while visions of sugar plums
danced in their heads
4. And Mama in her kerchief,
and I in my cap,
had just settled down
for a long winter's nap.
When out on the lawn

Santa smoking and the impact for kids with parents that smoke.

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, October 26, 2012,
Dear Santa,

I would like three things for Christmas. The first thing I would like the most is for my dad to stop smoking. He wastes money on cigarettes. Now he does not even spend time with us. It can also hurt his lungs.

The second thing I would like is some perfume. It is called “so perfect”. You can get it at Macy’s in the mall for $30.00.

The third thing I want for Christmas is new earrings. They look like reindeer. You can get them at Walmart for $5.99.

 I applaud you for making the edit to a classic poem by C. C.
 Moore. As a Santa that has worked in many venues around the U.S. over the
 last 14 years, I have come to realize the way that Children look at
 Santa and the need for him to be a good example for all Children. When
 I started reading the great poem to children many times throughout the year, I have
 purposefully edited the line about the pipe out of my reading. On occasion I have receive...

French and Spanish Editions are in bindery

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
It is just days away until the books are packed up in boxes and the distribution starts that we have been working on for almost a year now. It is not always the case that a publisher releases translations in the same year as launching the book but I felt there was a market for spanish and french books so I thought it would meet the market - so why wait.
The book is finding support and it is only every once in awhile that I find someone who says hands off the classics. The classics will always...
