Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Homemade Doggie Treats

My girls have a couple of doggie friends that they just love. They wanted to make a special treat for the doggies, so I set out to find a recipe. I looked over quite a few, and finally decided .... Okay. I will be totally honest with you... I'd been promising them that I would help them make some for a couple of weeks, but we never seemed to have all of the ingredients at once, so I kept putting it off... they kept asking... I caved and adapted like 3 recipes to what I had on hand and helped them make some.

The girls had fun helping to stamp out the treats with a small heart shaped cookie cutter.

So how do they taste?
I tasted them... personally, I thought they were bland. My 8 year old liked them.
But, our opinions aren't the ones that matter here.
They gave their doggie friends the treats, and the word at the fire hydrant is that they are yummy!
Here's how to make them:

Doggie Treats
What You Need:
2 cups flour plus extra for dusting
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole rolled oats
1/3-2/3 cup warm water
1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray a couple of cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, oats, and chicken bouillon. 
  3. Add the water a little at a time, until you have a dough- not too wet, not too dry.
  4. Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead a few times. Roll dough and cut into small squares or stamp out small treats with little cookie cutters.
  5. Place the treats on the cookie sheet (they can be close, but not touching. They really don't spread.)
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until done. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
(Note: I've read online that some of the ingredients in the bouillon can be toxic to dogs; however, the minute amount in these treats were said to not be harmful.)
