Birthday Boy!

Power has been restored to 100%. It’s amazing how much I rely on internet in my everyday life. I felt completely crippled without it. I’ve spent a good chunk of the weekend catching up on emails, paying bills and internet shopping Smile

Today is Willies 2nd birthday day! My recipe of the week is a batch of peanut butter oatmeal dog cookies that I whipped up this afternoon. I found the recipe here.

For the Dog Treats

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

Making the Dog Treats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine the flours and oatmeal. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Place the dough on a clean surface lightly dusted with flour and then roll the dough out to about 3/8” inch thick.  Add more flour if the dough is a bit moist and sticky.  Use a cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many treats as possible.  Place the cut-out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

My batch made a medium sized rubber made container full.

Have a good Sunday evening. I’m going to get another giveaway together for next week, it’s winter running appropriate.


  1. Too cute! I need to figure out how to make these wheat/corn/etc. free for our girls. They would love them!!

  2. Sounds like a happy dog recipe!

    Yes, it's amazing how much power we rely on and how poignant it feels when lacking it. I lived without power in HI quite a bit and ended up feeling quite disconnected. Here in Homer, I'm grateful that we have a renewable source of electricity and feel ok about using it. But no running water here - and that's a big deal too!


Thanks for reading my little slice of blogland. I look forward to seeing your comments and getting to know you all a bit better.
