St. Patrick's for the Dogs


Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day.  
My dog got into the green with some homemade 
green dog biscuits. 



They are Bailey approved as you can see, 
he did not leave a crumb in site.  
Not too bad since this was my first go at dog treats.  





Homemade St. Patrick Dog Biscuits


1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup corn meal
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup oat meal
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock for basting.
Green food coloring


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, corn meal,
pumpkin and 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock and vegetable oil. Mix well.
Now add a drop or two of green food coloring until you get your desired color, mix well.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out your dough about 3/8 inches think and take a dog bone cookie cutter and cut out your shapes.
If you like a fuller plumped bone biscuits you can transfer you biscuits to the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.   

To keep your biscuits flat, take a toothpick or fork to the center of each bone biscuit and transfer your biscuits to the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake your bone biscuits for 10 to 12 minutes then basted with chicken stock, bake another 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool, your looking for a dry crunch biscuit. 


Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


Hope your four legged friends enjoy them as much as mine did.

Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.


On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it.

Spring Bazaar Arts and Craft

St. John's held their annual Spring Bazaar on April 8th. 

Bake sale items were to help raise money for a new roof.  I made these cupcakes and a few mini cake's with my new Russian cake tips for the bake sale.

I made up multi packs of three and four cupcakes in spring colored and bunny boxes.

For the mini cakes I removed the cup cake holder insert and placed the 5" cakes inside.  They fit perfectly. 

After checking in, I found the single-serve cups sold faster than the multi-packs.  A good thought for next bake sale. Be sure to stop by next year to check out the wonderful artists and vendors.
