Easy and Elegant Dog Treats!

A Sampling...

Frozen Yogurt “Cookies” for Fido

Our dog has a history of Pancreatitis. Therefore he is on a strict diet of very, very low fat food and no “normal treats”. His treats are frozen green beans, carrots, crunchy lettuce, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkin “cookies” (frozen pumpkin), an occasional piece of pasta or two or brown rice. About a tablespoon, he loves!

Yogurt "Cookies" for Fido

To make these very easy cookies, just cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Then spoon little spoonfuls of 0% Plain Greek yogurt (I used Fage) onto the tray. You can “decorate” with anything they can eat, for Charlie, peas and carrots are his #1 choice. Some I have made very fancy, ha ha…

Pop them into the freezer (NOT the oven!) until frozen solid, several hours or overnight, usually. Then pull out the cookie sheet and working quickly, put them into a container that can go into the fridge, I separate the layers with wax paper.

It helps to have another “treat” to offer! It makes me feel better, ha ha…

Dancing Tulips!


Dancing tulips – simply beautiful! It’s so funny how they get close together at night as if they’re chilly, then during the day the spread out and look alive!

This table was a find while we were walking. The top is “aged”, ha ha… such cool lines to it. An unexpected treasure!

Back to normal posting with a house plan next week!

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Today I am very thankful and blessed to have such a wonderful Valentine!
Happy Valentine’s Day Fred! 

PS/ Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you too!! Wishing you a day filled with love and friendship. Valentine’s Day isn’t all about flowers, chocolate and dinner at a fancy restaurant. It’s about spending time with the people you love. Maybe even surprising someone who may not expect it. What better Valentine’s Day could there be?

Botany Bay Beach…

Botany Bay Beach, South Carolina

I loved being on the beach at Botany Bay in Edisto, SC. Like stepping back in time, just stunning. I use this image on my computer as my screensaver quite often.

Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and think of something positive with all that’s going on in the world.

Take a deep breath…

Focus on the little things...

Sometimes we need to take a few minutes during the day to tune out whatever is going on in the world that causes stress and anxiety and think of something a bit happier.

Weekend thought…


Image is from when Charlie was a puppy… He would go on running spurts through the house and jump up on the chair, caught him mid jump. This was before his hair got longer and fuzzy. Too funny…

Flashback Valentine’s Day Recipe!

Valentines day cookies 021411

Flashback recipe… and a reminder that Valentine’s Day is NEXT WEEK! You can make a batch of these beautiful cookies and share with those you love!

It makes plenty, so you can pass them out as Valentine’s! WHO wouldn’t love that?? Decorate them however you like. I just had white, then tinted with a little red which made a pretty pink, then more red food coloring to get the deeper red color. Three colors and endless possibilities! You will have so much fun doing this! You can bake the cookies the night before and decorate the day of. There is no tastier cookie, it’s not just a pretty face!
