Doggie Birthday Cake

I (well, my sister) made this cake for my little Snow's 1st birthday. It did not upset her tummy and she LOVED it! The recipe comes from I cut the recipe in half, so you can find the FULL recipe here.

* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 cup soft butter
* 1/4 cup corn oil (I used vegetable)
* 1 jar baby food, meat, beef, strained (I used pureed beef in broth)
* 2 eggs
* 1 strips beef jerky (I used Bacon style treats)


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a mini loaf pan (I used the top of my big top cupcake bakeware).

2. Cream butter until smooth. Add corn oil, baby food, and eggs. Mix until smooth.

3. Mix dry ingredients into beef mixture until batter is smooth. Crumble beef jerky and fold into batter. Pour batter into loaf pan.

4. Bake 50 minutes. Cool on wire rack 15 minutes.

5. Ice with plain yogurt or cottage cheese.

**Store uneaten cake in refrigerator.

ENJOY! (This was my Snowflake's 1st birthday)

Warm Bacon Dressing

This is one of my FAVORITE things that my grandma makes! This Easter me and my mom tried out her recipe and it turned out good, but nothing is ever as good as Grandma's cookin! --Note: When I took the pics to go with the recipe I doubled the recipe--

*4-5 slices of bacon
*1 egg
*1/2 cup sugar
*1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
*1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
*1 cup water


1. Cup up 4 to 5 slices of bacon with kitchen scissors and place in a saucepan to fry.

2. Fry the bacon until crispy and then pour off some of the fat. (NOT ALL)

3. Mix sugar and cornstarch.

4. Beat in the egg, vinegar and water.

5. Pour mixture into bacon and stir until thick.

6. We like to put this on EVERYTHING. It is made to be tossed with salad, but we like it on mashed potatoes, rolls, ham, turkey, pretty much anything and everything!
