I’m really excited about having my first guest blogger. Something that I’ve been doing since I’ve started is join blogging groups on Facebook to learn more about what I love doing, see what has worked for others and how that may work for me, and make some new blogger friends. I can honestly say that I’m getting better at this whole thing because of how they inspire me. That’s why having a guest blogger is so exciting to me! One of the groups I am part of is called “Authentic Bloggers” and it’s a collection of bloggers that have come together to lift each other up to become better bloggers, create a support system to one another and there’s such a variety of blogs, too.
That’s where I met Nora from ThePetiteMrs.com – and I’m thrilled she wanted to share the following post with us all, her DIY Dog Treats. I have a dog myself, the cutest little Japanese Chin named Harley, that has a really sensitive stomach. So when Nora told me that she wanted to share it with me I was soooo excited. I hope you enjoy her DIY as much as I will.
Today I have something different for you! Never done before on The Petite Mrs or my other blogs under different names. I want to try recipes, DIYs and more other deep topics that you might all enjoy!
You see, last night I was stuck in a huge blog rut and reaching out to a dear friend Tausha fron Taush .O I really wanted help and want to make my blog quality over quantity. She gave me an idea to make homemade dog treats. So I looked on Pinterest and decided to try one out for myself. I am a Pinterest addict however I do not try Pinterest activities much, or ever-at all. Sooo… I dove in and found one very simple and I knew my dogs would love it!
Here’s the link, just in case but I’ll have everything mapped out and visually as I did it.
This recipe is stupid easy, super fast and my dogs loved it~
So last night, I headed to the store and grabbed a bag of 100% Whole Wheat Flour and a few cans of meat type baby food (turkey, beef, chicken).
I spent less than 8$. I went to Walmart-the baby food was .90 cents and the flour was like 4.00. I didn’t have any at home but you can most likely use any kind of flour, wheat germ or rolled oats in the other recipes I saw.
Today I cleaned the counter surfaces to I’d have a place to work and it would be clean. I preheated the oven to 350 degrees and let it preheat for 6 minutes (which is my automatic on my oven).
When I was done placing them on baking sheet (I had enough for 2 cookie sheets and baked them at the same time) about an inch apart or less-then I stuck them into the oven. Timer on for 25 minutes! They don’t expand they just need room to not stick together. I also followed the directions to make them thin and flat enough to bake all the way through, no thicker than a half inch.
And as always,
