Your dog deserves a treat! These homemade Carrot, Peanut Butter, and Oats Dog Treats are packed with all of your pup’s favorites! 

Hi guys, happy almost weekend!

We’re making dog treats today!

It has been rainy and gross and the only time I’ve left the house all week was to sit at the coffee shop for a few hours to bang out some posts for Food Fanatic and clear out my inbox.

And there may have been a wine run after a very long Monday with the boys home allllll day. Whatever. That hardly counts.

And since I’ve been home, I’m finally really breaking in the new kitchen. I think I’ve baked 10 things this week and y’all know I’d all but given up on baking the last few months.

Kitchen Sink Oatmeal Cookies – oatmeal cookies filled with everything but the kitchen sink! Chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, walnuts, raisins, and coconut!

When we moved I realized I had a lot of mostly empty bags of chocolate chips.

A lot.

Same goes for pecans, shredded coconut, almond meal, bottles of vanilla, all the stuff I always think I’m out of when I’m out the store and apparently am never actually out of it.

Plus, 15 packages of almond bark even though I only use almond bark once a year for crockpot candy…? I don’t know, guys.

I guess everyone I know is getting crockpot candy for Christmas next year.

Texas Toast Pizza – quick and easy way to to do pizza night! Garlic Texas toast with pizza sauce, cheese, and whatever toppings you love! Ready in less than 10 minutes and a kid favorite!

Happy Sunday, y’all!

Last cheater week, I promise. Maybe.

Okay, hopefully.

My life is still a crazy busy mess. So crazy that BF was actually in charge of this recipe. He made these Texas Toast Pizzas for the boys months and months ago and I noticed them when I was scrolling through the pictures on my phone while avoiding doing something important and time sensitive early last week.

ANYWAY. I casually mentioned to him that I was thinking about making them for this post and the next day all the ingredients were magically in the kitchen and he was ready to make them for me.

If I haven’t mentioned it yet, I don’t deserve him.

Also, yesterday he was outside washing his truck and came inside and said, “There’s a big long-haired German shepherd out here if you want to meet it” and yes, of course I want to pet the giant dog while you make small talk with the neighbors. This is exactly how I need this relationship to work.

Sweet Tea Mules – a southern twist on the classic mule. Sweet tea vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice! So easy and so delicious!

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!

I made drinks for those of us that will be spending it alone. Let’s all get heart shaped pizzas and have Sweet Tea Mules while we watch Netflix with our dogs.

I am such a Valentine’s Day scrooge and I don’t really know why.

I love everything pink and glittery and covered in hearts, I bought myself the most gorgeous orange tulips yesterday because everyone has beautiful flowers right now and I can’t say no, and I will 100% be stalking the local cupcake place to see if they have Valentine’s Day themed cupcakes but still, I just don’t love Valentine’s Day.

Is this cheating?

You guys, it’s all I had time for this week. Plus, I know ya’ll love a quick and easy recipe every once in a while. Five ingredients, nothing to prepare in advance, and kids love them.

So how was the week? We had another busy one because of the move. We were back and forth a lot and I had to get power and water and I still haven’t had time to get a mailbox but that’s number 1 on the list for tomorrow. And it’s stupid cold in Texas again and I just don’t want to go anywhere or do anything because I am not made to function in cold climates.

Freezing rain this morning, guys.

Freezing. Rain.

I’m not cut out for it.

Truly don’t know how I survived in Colorado for 4 years.
