Notes From Home

One of the things I wanted to do that qualifies as catching up on things I need to do around our house was making peanut butter dog cookies for Maxine.  I found the recipe on Pinterest by Brown Eyed Baker, it looked like it might be quick, easy and fun.  I started working on the dog cookies about a half an hour before Jenny & Michael got home from school in hopes they'd like to join in.  When they came in the door they thought it smelled really good in the house and wanted to try a cookie, lick the beaters, bowl, etc.  I told them to help themselves -  Jenny had to go wash her mouth out, lol, what drama!  

Can you see Maxine in the above picture?  Not my watermark either!

Here she is posing for me and keeping an eye on her kids.

A picture of the finished product, it was a double batch.  
Maxine thinks they're delicious!

The recipe for you:

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

I bought my bone shaped cookie cutters from Amazon and I've also seen them since in PetSmart with the Martha Stewart pet supplies.  I like the smaller size dog treats because Maxine makes less of a mess with them so I went for the smaller size cookie cutters.

Oh, if you couldn't see Maxine in the first picture look very carefully between Michael & Jenny about table height and you'll see her.  Have a blessed day and thanks for visiting my blog -

Yep, I spotted Maxine between the kids :) I too used to make my dog treats, and she'd park herself right in front of the oven and wait until they were done baking :) TFS this sweet story :)

What great pictures, Jan - the kids are having such a great time and I can see that Maxine is supervising. :o) Can't believe how fast these two are growing - I believe Michael is changing the most.Still thinking good thoughts for Rick, give him my love. Love your blog and all your terrific creations, but especially the family updates. Big Hugs, Sharon :o)
