Light Strawberry  and Savory Scones for the Dogs 


Light Strawberry Scones


So yes, I am One Of Those people that treats her pets like children.

Much to the dismay of my mother, my dogs pretty much have the run of the house. They sit on the furniture, some may sleep in a bed, under the covers, and one little one simply cannot stay off of the kitchen chairs/counter/table.

I’d probably let the chickens live inside when it gets cold out if Ian would allow it.




Little Bea has become almost as fussy as my fussy eater, preferring homemade treats and dog food to store bought. She actually will not even walk over to her bowl  if it  contains food from a bag.

The other day when I was making scones for the kids breakfast, I decided to try out my new cookbook from the Three Dog bakery.
