Henry's Heart-shaped Bacon Peanut Butter Doggie Cookies

Henry loves doggie cookies. And I love to indulge him. However, buying dog biscuits at the supermarket can cost from $3.50 to 6.00 a box and given Henry's generous appetite for treats, I quickly needed to find an alternative.

Luckily, there are a plethora of simple recipes for dog biscuits that allow you to use everyday ingredients to create treats your dog will love.

For instance, to make Henry's Heart-Shaped Bacon Peanut Butter Doggie Cookies, I found a basic recipe for bacon dog biscuits and then added a few twists to make them even better.

The recipe includes:

  • 3 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • two eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup bacon grease
  • ten slices fried bacon, chopped

Frying bacon with a dog whose head comes up over the counter means that you will have an avid audience.

Luckily, frying bacon is the most difficult part of the entire process.

The rest of the recipe simply means combining all the ingredients, letting them cool for 30 minutes in the 'fridge. Then rolling out the dough and using a cookie cutter of choice to form the cookies.

Bake the cookies at 350 for 30 minutes. Then turn off the oven and let the cookies remain in the oven to dry out as the oven cools.

This can take up to an hour if you want that dog biscuit texture.

Don't worry, you'll be amazed at how patient your dog will be when he knows something yummy is coming his way.

Not only does Henry like these homemade cookies better than the store bought variety, Miss Coco my very finicky yorkie who normally turns up her nose at dog biscuits, loves them too!

I thought I'd left a comment but I guess it got lost. I think its great that you have found a way to feed Henry on home made cooking.
Hi! I stumbled upon your blog and love this recipe for the doggie biscuits, though my very picky eater of a 3 year old would undoubtedly love them as well, as it includes her two favorite foods in the world: bacon and peanut butter! She would get a kick out of feeding them to our dog as well! Thank you for sharing and should I make them, no I won't feed them to my daughter. :)

Women are Highly Esteemed in the Eyes of This Man

I enter the sanctuary of Our Lady of Peace Church and my eyes adjust to the dimmed lights as the only illumination comes from candles on the altar and their glowing reflection in the monstrance holding the Blessed Sacrament.
My friend and I had come to join the Mary and Martha’s quarterly meeting which started with an hour of Adoration.
I took my seat in one of the pews, knelt, and surreptitiously glanced around the sanctuary. In the gloaming, I could see thirty other women kneeling like sentinels in silent prayer. 
Over the course of the hour, we would remain in contemplative silence.
As I slipped in and out of my prayers and wandering thoughts, I considered how pleased God must be when he sees us gathered in the simple and divine act of Adoration.
But in fact, women are highly esteemed in God’s sight not matter where we are. 
We only look at the life of Jesus Christ to understand how dearly he cherishes every woman.
In the Gospel of Saint John, a group of men bring a woman caught i…

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

If you are tired of the guilt trip you usually feel at church, here’s a different perspective

I am counting the days until I fly to Fort Lauderdale to see Mom for Christmas. Yes, I speak with her every day, sometimes twice a day. But as you know, phone calls just aren’t the same as being with someone you love. I look forward to seeing Mom’s smile, to holding her hand, to going for a drive along the beach with her. Spending time in the presence of someone we love enriches our relationship with them.
I believe the love I feel for Mom, is a sliver of what God feels for each of us. I believe God longs to share that love with us. Which is why we are called to spend time in God’s presence daily. We experience God’s presence when we meet him in our prayers, in church, and hopefully in one another. If I could make one wish for each of us, it would be that at some point during the next four weeks of Advent we would experience how much Jesus loves us.

The Best Christmas

During my morning devotions, I read these two verses of Psalm 117:
Praise theLord,all you nations;
extol him, all you peop…
