Good-for-Them Dog Treats

If you haven’t noticed, Kevin and I are “those” dog parents. Yes, we set up play dates for Gracie, try to buy her the best toys/treats and walk her a billion times a day to ensure she’s the happiest pup around.

So instead of running up to the store to buy her more treats when I noticed we were nearly out, I hopped on my trusty Pinterest board and gathered ideas for some homemade dog treats! They are super simple to make and you probably have most of the ingredients in your very own pantry (I did)!

-3 cups all-purpose flour (you can use whole wheat flour if you have that)
-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
-1/2 cup of water
-1/3 cup of oats
-1/3 cup of peanut butter (or applesauce if you are allergic 🙂 )
-1/3 cup of shredded carrots

-Preheat oven to 350°F
-Spray baking sheet with Pam or other spray
-Mix all ingredients together using spoon or mixer
-Roll flat onto surface and use cookie cutters for shapes or roll dough into small-to-medium balls
-Bake for 25 minutes
-Let cool before serving!!

Sounded like a human cookie until you got to the carrots, right?



Come on, Mom! Just gimmie that cookie!


Gone in 60 seconds!

Do you know what I realized when I made this cookies? I realized I don’t own a rolling pin. Know what’s ironic? I planned to make these bad boys for dinner right after making her cookies and dinner also required a rolling pin. My solution?

Problem solved! Kindof…

Yes. That is a wine bottle. And I am using it as a rolling pin. I am brilliant.

Our pepperoni rolls didn’t turn out as perfect as I would have liked, but they were delicious! Recipe recommended. 🙂

Tonight’s plan includes learning a new foreign language! That foreign language is spoken fluently among recent college grads, high school guidance counselors, financial aid departments and banks. You guessed it! I’m learning “student loan consolidation.”

I’m paying a lot per month and I’m trying to see if consolidating would be a wise move for me financially. If you have any special student loan insight or recently consolidated, I’d love to hear from you!

Adios! 🙂
