Christmas treats for the furry kids

Every Christmas I make treats for my kids. My kids are dogs and I loved spoiling them too during the holidays. This year, we are fostering a Treeing walker Coonhound that supervised my baking from the kitchen doorstep. He really enjoyed the smell!






We also give some to our "kid's friends" and no of them can resist this treat, see for yourself, I got a few testimony:

Wheat Treats

2 jars baby food meat (chicken, lamb, beef, etc.. - you decide, make sure there is no onion)
1/2 cup non-fat powder milk
1-2cups wheat germ



Pre-heat the oven at 350C.

Mix all the ingredients. Spoon small balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

Make sure to store those in the fridge.


Hope your dogs enjoy!

The Cook/baker's wish list

Dear Santa,
as you already know I have been a good girl, mostly... So here's my wish list:

My Little Cupcake Mould
A bunch of candy melts
Lolly Sticks
Food Color pen sets
and if you won the lottery, a kitchenaid mixer.

That list is mostly to share some goodies Santa. So you see, I am being a good girl. Any Kcup coffee/tea/hot chocolate is also accepted!

I will leave cookies for you on Christmas Eve. If there is none left, I am sorry but I blame hubby. Or Karine... Or Scott....


Love
Melanie


It's pure torture to see all those cool cakes/cupcakes/cakepops and not be able to make some due to lack of material in Quebec stores. Just the Candy melts, I can't find anything so my choices are different variations of chocolate color coating: white, milk or dark. Even adding food coloring doesn't really help. I can't find gel coloring anywhere, I am stuck with the liquid one. Trying to make a red velvet cake with red liquid food coloring does NOT work well.

I'd love to take an afternoon of decorating cake pops with a friend or two and a glass of wine or two... and more...


Just look at those cuties from My Little Cupcake's blog




Cute, no?
