Just like Grandma used to make

Remember Snickerdoodles? Cinnamon-laden cookies that smelled- and tasted soooo good with a glass of cold milk?


So here's my canine-friendly version-
SNICKERPOODLES topped off with carob chips.  
Folks have been clamoring for some wheat-free treats and after messing up a couple of batches, I finally hit on the right combination- using Brown Rice Flour and Oat Flour.


Introducing them at the Everett Market tomorrow.. a little more costly, but they are made with some (not all) organic ingredients and are wheat/gluten free which means the ingredients cost more than the ordinary. Folks who have dogs with wheat/gluten sensitivities are well aware of that fact and don't seem to mind paying a little extra when they can find a tasty, healthy treat for their furry friends.

One of these days we'll talk about my feelings of  "organic dog treats" and how I really think they're a waste of money. Oh wait, I guess we just talked about it.  
In a nutshell....
Natural? Yes! 
No By-Products, Sugar, Salt, Chemicals, Preservatives? Absolutely! 
Organic? Just a little over the top for a pet. 

If I've stepped on anyone's toes, Im sorry. Please refrain from throwing tomatoes... unless of course- they are certified organic.

My son...Grandpa John and his new grandaughter, Rowan


Rowan Esther Steffen was born at 5:11 pm today, weighing 6lbs 1 oz and measuring 19". Mommy Heather is doing just fine and if Daddy Phillip gets any prouder, he will burst his shirt buttons. Baby Rowan seems to turn her head towards him whenever she hears Phillip's voice. Grandpa John seems to be in shock- that his little girl has a little girl. As for Great Grandma Bev...the tears of joy are mingled with a few tears of sorrow...our first Great Grandchild... Pat would have adored having another baby girl to fuss over. I like to think she's already met him since all babies come from Heaven.
