Do you know who’s awesome? My dogs. They are older, but they are such good cuddlers. I’m missing them as we are currently on vacation and they are staying with a friend of mine. My dogs, Moses and Elijah, have been with me since before I was married. They are not as spry and playful as they used to be, but their sweet souls have grown up along with me. Being separated from them has reminded me that it’s always a good idea to treat your friends, even if they canine friends.
Since I’ve begun my leggings adventure, I thought now was a good time to upcycle my jeans. We also had a mysterious third foam pillow lying the around the house. Now that my dogs are older, they deserve something a little more comfortable to sleep on.
I added a zipper so we could wash the pillow cover (very important), and in just a couple hours my dogs had a brand new dog bed. Perfect, since we moved them into a larger crate.
Doesn’t Moses look so handsome on his new bed?
Because I do have older dogs, I’m very careful about the treats we give them. I never feed my dogs treats made with ingredients from China, and want to make sure they are made with real meat (and no poultry byproducts). Thankfully, Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Treats fit the bill, and a portion of the profits go toward helping rescue animals find forever homes!
I was able to find these treats on Chewy.com, where they were easy to find. Oh, and what do the dogs think?
Um, yeah. They are pretty much in love. Elijah even stole the bag and dragged it into his crate during our little photo shoot. It’s important to remember that Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Treats are not intended to be the main source of nourishment for your dog, and you should always watch your dog to ensure Nutrish treats are thoroughly chewed before swallowing. Break into small pieces for smaller dogs.
And since I was doing something special for my canine friends, I wanted to something nice for my human best friend (husband) too!
Salted Peanut Butter Cookies. Yes, that’s what I said. SALTED. PEANUT BUTTER. COOKIES. Are they as good as they sound? What do you think?!
Not only are they delicious, they are also gluten-free. What, what, WHAT?! Gluten-free. Yes, I said it. I went there. And no, I didn’t use any special flour. These cookies only have 4 ingredients.
Chewy, moist and delicious, these morsels for human consumption leave nothing to be desired. My hubby loved them, as did my son and myself. And that’s saying a lot for a woman who has a spiritual relationship with gluten.
So, treat your friends. Show them some love! Go out and get your dog some Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Treats. He deserves it. And while you’re at it, make your human friends some cookies. To save this recipe for later, pin the pic below!
- 1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups smooth peanut butter
- Coarse-grained sea salt, to finish
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
- Whisk together the light brown sugar and eggs until smooth. Whisk in the vanilla extract, then the peanut butter until smooth and completely incorporated; you shouldn’t be able to see any ribbons of peanut butter.
- Chill the dough by freezing it in its bowl for 15 minutes, stirring it once (so the edges don’t freeze first), before scooping it.
- Scoop or spoon the dough into balls
- Place on prepared pan.
- Sprinkle the dough balls lightly with coarse-grained sea salt just before baking.
- Bake smaller cookies for 14 to 15 minutes and larger for 18 to 20 minutes.
